Reenie's Stitch Sampler Cabled Afghan (Pillows?)
Inspired by Sam's Stitch of the Week project in Lime and Violet's blog. (Sam's blog link)
I want to be challenged, but NOT over-committed to a large project right now. This I can pick at when I get a chance and the pieces can travel about with me. I am not sure if it will become an afghan/throw or pillows yet. I have plenty of time to decide.
So here are the yarns I have chosen to use. All Malabrigo worsted, because I have some in stock and it is so very yummy. The colors I have chosen are perfect for my house and they make me smile.
Forest Green, Apple Green, Velvet Grapes, Molly, Amoroso, Holly Hock, Shocking Pink, Buscando Azul, Jacinto, Violetas, Fucsia and Purple Mystery.
I may follow some of Sam's chosen cable patterns, but have decided to start simple-ish.
I found some free cable patterns on the Vogue site and just ordered the Vogue Stitchionary Vol. 2, Cables book. I wound all of my skeins into balls and made this handy little yarn reference card thingy for my journal. (just to satiate my OCD).
So-- first color is Apple Green and the first pattern is Flirtation, which I started last night.
