Check out them puffs! I have officially semi stuffed them and kitchenered those puffies up! I love how they look altogether, but I can’t wait to get even more colors going on. I have tons of pinks and blues in my possession currently, and I need to round that out. I’m going for both pale an rich puffs in all colors, no idea how to arrange them yet. I have a couple ideas:
1. Arrange them in a sort of fading way, where similar colors fade from one edge of the blanket into other colors to the other edge, sort of like pinks going into purples going into blues , greens, yellows, etc. Rainbow-esque?
2. arrange them willy nilly according to my own personal tastes.
I’m not buying all of the yarn I need for it at once because I want to sort of pick as time goes on based on what colors I feel need to fill it out. I do have a big order I got from Exchanging Fire on Etsy though!
I was soooo excited to get these because I have had a pretty limited supply leading up to this. You can tell by all the pale pink puffs I have! Yeesh!
I ordered the Tickle Me Pink 6 set and got the above. There is some blue moon socks that rock in there, with some cashmere, Louet, South west Trading company, etc. They are all catalogues in my stash. One of my favourite things is that I get to try out all of these great yarns I have heard of before on podcasts or by other means, without having to shell out a lot of money.
I also picked up the Winter Wonderland bunch. These included Dream in Color Smooshy yarn, a sparkly one, some regia, wollmeise, etc. I like that she included some darker, some lighter, some variegated and some solids, a really good mix. Perfect for my uses 🙂 There are a couple minis not pictured because I already started knitting on them. They are the blue puffs below. oddly 1 of them is not in the photo…hmmm! I think it may be buried!
I still haven’t decided how best to attach them so keep an eye out for that 🙂
aaaaaaaaand on a slightly different note, look! :
I finished moms socks! Better pictures and more explanation tomorrow 🙂 I’m just super happy with them, first ever finished pair of socks 😀
