No I’m not going to wax poetic about a carnival or the state fair. I’ve hit the mid-way point on my large version of the Generations Stole. In celebration – or maybe it was really more like curiosity – I gave it a gentle soak and pinned it out for a soft block on the wires.
The color of the mats really distort the color of the yarn, which is a soft lavender shade. This photo shows six repeats complete and measures roughly 20 inches wide by 30 inches long. When I finish the twelfth repeat there will be plenty left for a small scarf. The fluidity of movement in this pattern is what pleases me most, and you know I love the nupps.
Last night when I finished walking my laps through the North Pasture I stood in the grass with my face turned up. Clouds in rose/gold and lavender/grey moved across the sky as the wind pushed them in front of a low brewing storm.
Rose/gold rose/gold I kept repeating to myself after I came inside. Would those colors be too garish for a lace yarn?
