Yesterday I went to Dornoch Fibre Fest and bought sooooo much yummy yarn!
To justify my new acquisitions I have been putting patterns against each yarn in my Ravelry queue. Some kind of weird psychology that helps me feel these were an investment not impulse buys!
I want to do my first brioche shawl (ignoring the fact Void shawl still isn’t finished). The thing is I am not sure whether with brioche you need a light and a dark skein, or whether it’s effective with 2 deep saturated colours.
Here’s my 3 options, is your preference top, middle or bottom?
It’s to go with my Chimney Fire cardigan.
The 2 deep colours are Merino, Silk & Yak blend. The 2 speckles are merino, nylon with one having some alpaca too.
I don’t have the patience to knit a shawl that needs all 4 skeins.
More on the fibre fest later this week.
