Some of you may recall seeing a sneak peek at my latest project, a Trailblazer scarf from the Knit Play Colour collection, knit in Cold Spring Creations 2 ply merino sock yarn in the ‘Acorn’ colourway:
My Ravelry project page can be found here. I’m super in love with the yarn, it knits up so well and the colours are absolutely perfect for fall, the sort of colours I crave this time of year:
Is it not just like fall foliage? And the shifts are just like what you see when the leaves turn:
That’s what it looked like when I un-skeined it, to prepare for winding it into a ball. I couldn’t’ resist taking a photo. Total swoon.
What I love about this pattern is that it’s so easy to memorize, and being just one skein, super portable. This has totally become my train knitting, so I’ve been chipping away at it only when in transit and it’s pretty much done! The arc of the crescent is really intuitive and graceful, and I love how the texture mimics the look of fall leaves on the trees. Just a bit more on the the final end, and then a good wet blocking will be in order!
