the time has come
to design mittens and fingerless gloves to
to with tohutohu, the hat from this past summer’smystery kal with lys string theory yarn company!
playing with the colorwork stitch patterns
again is going to be so fun.
comes choosing yarn.
i’m excited to be working with
local dyer dirty water dyeworks ‘clara petite’ for the mitts and fingerless.
stephanie’s colors are rich and lovely with just a the right touch of semi-solid in the mix.
i’ve such a soft spot for the depth that semi-solid colors add
to any project.
here’s the only catch:
i like all the petite clara colorways. every one.
my mind reels at all the possible color combos that
flash before my eyes when i begin to consider.
will you guys help me out here?
check out the choices
for ‘petite clara’.
they’re on this page right here
and, the two new colors not yet pictured
are carbon (dark gray) and vermont (hunter green).
be sure to scroll down past the ‘clara’ colors to get to the ‘petite clara’ ones.
please do leave me comments with your favorite color combos, ok?
that would be so great.
you get that the real problem here
is that i want them all, right? every single one. smile.

Chartreuse and carbon!
I would love to see Carrot Cake and Eggplant. They look spectacular together!
I like that combo too! 🙂 There are too many to choose from!
I can’t pick just one. It would be so lovely to do fair isle with all of them! My combos would be Purple Heather and Out of the Blue, or Winter Sky and Mauve or Sangria, or Carrot Cake and Chartreuse! Depends whether you want bright or subdued or,… I’m sure this isn’t terribly helpful!
I’ve narrowed it down just a little. How about Sangria and Winter Sky, or Purple Heather and Chartreuse? Of course, Sangria would look great (and a bit more subdued) combined with Fallow or Carbon. Oh, and the Purple Heather would be great with Vermont.
Dunno if I’ve been helpful at all, lol.
