My mother-in-law asked me to make her a cardigan. After some searching she settled on the Ecuador Design by Joji Locatelli. It was in part the design that won her over, but also the colour of the yarn that was used in that design. That yarn is Malabrigo sock yarn in colourway Indecieta.
In a not-so-smart moment, I decided to source said yarn from Ravelry destashes - 1 skein here, 1 skein there... you get the picture.
Here's the result :)
In fairness I knew exactly what I was purchasing. It just struck me as fascinating that one colourway could have radically different skeins. There will be some serious alternating of skeins, to get something that looks similar to the original design :)))
Have you experienced anything similar with your knits?
Anyhoo, I started the back panel with the skein that was a closest match to the picture on the pattern. It turned out really nice. Next up, I'll be knitting around, while juggling my Indecieta family of skeins :)
This first step was the perfect knit in what has been an exhausting week at work. Stocking stitch... can't beat it for some winding down and relaxation at the end of a day. The other project that has been keeping me entertained this week is the Christmas stocking that I mentioned in my last post. The colours in this are glorious.
Hope you are have had a lovely (and restful) weekend.
