Unraveled Wednesday

I saw this hat pattern and just knew I needed it on my needles. I had two skeins of Swan Island yarn that I picked up on clearance so it was an easy choice. I am doing okay with this two color pattern but I am pretty sure that I have a lot to learn about doing color work. I need to check my Craftsy classes. I think I have a color Work class in my queue. I am also open to suggestions for books or videos on color work.

I am on the last section of The Immortalists and still loving this book. I made myself slow down a bit because I didn’t want to miss anything in this wonderful story. I listened to the audio book of Brene Brown’s Braving the Wilderness.

Be sure to visit Kat for more Unraveled Wednesday post and remember to pay attention to those tiny, tiny moments this week.

  1. Your hat is so pretty! Love the two colors together. Isn’t it wonderful when a book is so good that you want to slow down to make it lasts?

  2. That is a nice pattern and I love your color choice…looking forward to seeing the hat grow. You’ve convinced me to read The Immortalists…bumping it up in my queue.

  3. Your colorwork looks lovely! The video I posted today has some tips for carrying the unused color behind your work by putting your needle through a stitch, place the color strand above the needle, and then taking your stitch. It is easier to see than explain 🙂

  4. I love that hat pattern! Many years ago, I took a class on fair isle techniques and learned a great tip (described in one of the comments above) about “catching” your unused color on the back of your knitting. I usually do that – catching the unused color – every 2-3 stitches. It really keeps the floats neat and tidy!

  5. Your color sense is just spectacular! I might need to consult with you before buying any yarn for my next sweater! I am on the list for the Immortalists and I can wait!

  6. Your hat is lovely! I’m binging my way through The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend (I did think about not doing that, but decided against it!) so anyway about your colorwork, I think the knitting looks great and I love your colors. Berroco is running a fair-isle sweater KAL and there are a lot of great tips on Ravelry (https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/berroco-lovers/3733552/1-25) … in case you don’t want to commit to a Craftsy class.
