WIP Wednesday

I have a WIP I can show you, and it happens to be Wednesday. Hurray, knitting content!

Photobucket

This is the ubiquitous Selbu Modern. I've had it in my queue for possibly a hundred years. Okay maybe just three. It's going Slooowly. I haven't done any stranded colourwork since last winter/spring, and it is taking me some time to get back into it. As such, I'm not enjoying the process as much as I thought I would, and that's making things even slower. Ah well, I'll finish it eventually. Although my tension is awfully uneven, I'm cautiously optimistic that blocking will fix it.

Yarn is this old random wool I bought from Lewiscraft a few years ago when they were going bust. The purple was originally fuschia, (same as I used for my Endpaper Mitts), but I overdyed it with Wilton's Royal Blue, and I love its current colour.

  1. Love the colors. This is also on my future list of things to knit. I daydream about different color combinations every time I view FO of this pattern on ravelry. Yours is looking great! And it's a universal truth that blocking will always even things out.

  4. Great work with overdying it! It turned out amazing! It just proves, if yarn is on sale and you don't like the color, it doesn't matter! You can fix that!

  5. Seriously gorgeous colors. Some day I will try colorwork. Really. I will. It just looks so *scary*... Glad you've taken the plunge, though, and looking forward to seeing the FO!
