stash love reprise

We haven't done a stash love post in a long....loooong time. This little stash beauty has been hanging around waiting for the perfect pattern. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled it out, pet it, and put it back. I was patient. But, now...

...I think I found the pattern.


First the yarn: it's from Impulse of Delight in the 'Transformed' colorway. It's an 80% merino 20% nylon blend. Boy is it ever soft and wonderful to handle. As in really, really wonderful!!

I remember reading a piece Ruth wrote on color quite a long while ago, she had a very cool approach to creating a color palette from a favorite photograph.

The pattern is a test knit for Anne. She is knitting her Rare Gem yarn in this pattern; you can see her sock if you scroll to the bottom here!! Anne's bright pink yarn is sooo yummy!

Anyway...that's all I know for now.

I hope you all are enjoying a good start to your week. Winter seems to have returned, but other than that...we're all good here at Chez NK!

These feet would feel right at home in a grassy meadow...very pretty.

I'm in love with that colorway--you captured it so beautifully. It's the perfect springtime color.

Hmm...and I'm thinking that this pattern you're knitting up could rival Tesserae.

I thought I recognized that pattern from Anne's blog. It looks very cool in this colorway. It's fun to see it in such vibrant tones on her blog, and pale and subtle here. Fun times ;)

This yarn is just lovely and your photos make me want to be a better photographer.

The bright pale is a nice antidote to the returned winter. We, too, have had grey skies, cold rain and very changeable winds.

Oh! I recognized that pattern right away and just love love love it in that colorway!! So pretty!!

Yes, a bit of winter here too, but I'm focusing on at least its sock weather!

Beautiful colour combination. Reminds me of rhubarb :)

Love your work always, but this one inspired me to actually buy this colorway. I had looked at it before and finally took the leap, but in sportweight BFL, for some gloves or a hat. Thanks for the beautiful and inspiring photos!
