Berroco is on the left?
Things I’m liking about this project so far: the cables (aren’t they just awesome?), the quick way it’s working up (I’m already about half-way done), and the color of the knit fabric using these two shades of teal held together.
I knew I wanted to use Berroco Peruvia Quick, but when I originally swatched with it I wasn’t quite getting gauge. While gauge isn’t critical, I nevertheless started swatching with more than one color held double. The first two attempts (with different shades of green mohair) looked like I was getting ready for Mardi Gras. Which might have been fine if I had been getting ready for Mardi Gras. But … since I wasn’t, in the ditch went the green mohair. I then found some Patons Décor in teal from an earlier project, swatched with it and the Berroco, and voila! It’s amazing to see how teal can look so different given different dyers and fibers. And, held together, the Berroco Peruvia Quick almost looks navy.
I hope a great fibery week was had by all – and don’t forget to check back with Andrea's blog to see what everyone else is up to!
