I made a simple shrug for Kid 1 before Christmas, and when Kid 2 saw it, the first thing she said was, “Where is mine?”
Here is hers.
I wanted a kind of rustic look, because of the yarn colors. A slightly modern take on patchwork.
The yarn was Dk weight, Destination Yarn Southwestern Collection Variegated Colorways set. It is now sold out. I will say that while on the website the colors of each skein were distinct, in my set the two reds were practically the same color, green and blue were extremely close, and darker and lighter tan were only a couple of shades apart, which what gave me the idea for the cardigan. It is to be expected with the hand-dyed yarn, but if I wanted very distinct colors, I would’ve had to pivot.
The yarn was lovely to work with, however, so no complaints. Also, I can’t find the two extra skeins I ordered. I received them and put them somewhere. If I find them, I will add pockets.
Now I need to figure out what the next project is. have to do something with my hands while sitting next to Gordon on the couch watching true crime specials and Gold Rush. Come on, Parker, I’m invested in your Dominion project. You must succeed.
