Options (with a poll)

Some cool things got ordered and came in the mail. First up – Eiffel Tower scissors! Aren’t they cute?

They remind me of my trip to France last year!

and then some fun things from Mason-Dixon Knitting came – a set of their Field Guides at a really good price! You get both the print books and e-books as well.

So small and cute! Such great patterns!

The one I’m looking at right now is from Field Guide No. 3 – Wild Yarns, it’s a scarf called the Colorwash Scarf, which is a fun easy knit that I can take on my trip to SoCal. The pattern calls for two colorways of fingering sock yarn, they don’t have to have a lot of contrast. I rummaged into my stash and came up with two options:

Option 1: Anzula Nebula in the Minty Unicorn Colorway (left), and MadelineTosh Tosh Sock in the Filigree Colorway (right)

 

Option 2: Fable Fibers folktale in the Asheville color way (left) and Anzula Milky Way in the Emerald color way (right)

 

If you’re reading this, go ahead and¬†vote on which option you think I should use:

I’m chugging away at knitting more Knitted Knockers. I particularly like the silver and pink version (a way to use up scraps).

 

Finally, I found a home for my shawl – it’s a color that I don’t like. My hairdresser, Camille, is a great recipient – she’s lovely, looks good in this color, and she appreciates the hand knits!
