Although today is “International Crochet Day”, I didn’t pick up my yarn and hook to crochet the day away. Why not? Because the shop didn’t have the yarn I needed for my blanket. They have to order it, so I guess it will take a week or so, before I can work on it again.
Instead I bought some more yarn for my “Knitted Jacked”, the nice vest I’m making, together with a bunch of other Dutch knitters, over at Ravelry . I started with this nice colour green. But then two things happened. First, when I was taking out my winter clothes, I noticed that there already were about 4 vests and sweaters in almost the same colour. Obviously I like that colour, but to make another one, would be a bit much, wouldn’t.
Secondly, I got bored, knitting in only one colour. So I decided to get some bright colours.
I’m only going to use them in the top of the vest, where there is no ribpattern anymore. I browsed my books and a lot of patterns over at Ravelry to see what I could do with these colours. I made a little swatch.
Have a nice day!
