No, this is not about cooking and knitting at the same time. Is that even possible?? LOL!!
It is simply about a new shawlette and a color named tomato. I am very excited about this knit. The german designer Marita Behm has these technical patterns that demands some attention and again in garter stitch.
I have knitted her Hitchhiking and I had a great time knitting it. The patterns are so well explained and I am a big fan of that.
So, when she launched the pattern for this shawlette I was on. But I had not decided the yarn. It is actually meant for stash yarn.
Stash is no problem AT ALL!!! But I wanted a lovely yarn. I had some Madelinetosh merino light in cobalt blue in the stash.
When a knitting friend showed me her skein of the color tomato I ordered some of that. Just the perfect color for that cobalt one.
Complementary colors are after all my favorite color combination. I just love the colors and the knitting. This is going to be so good.
I started knitting the leaf - not the back ground color. I think it looks better and gives a nice finish. A lot of knitters has done the same so I found some help on Ravelry. You should check all the projects for this pattern - there are so many creative color combinations.
It is really fun to knit. And I can dream about summer and fresh tomatoes. Right now it is foggy and rainy as it has been for ever. At least it feels like it.
