New Knitting Project

Finished winding my wool from hanks for a throw. Bought the kit from ColinetteYarns at last year's Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace. It will be a lovely lace throw with a zig-zag pattern. Whilst I love the different textures, the sari ribbon and the mohairs, I'm still not sure about the mohair at the bottom of the photo, I'm uneasy about the rusty oranges. Too clashy? I think I'll see if they do a more purply mohair and try subsituting it. The other colours I adore, the rich sea greens and the pinks


  1. Just clicked on your site after I had written on mine. I had felt unsure about something of mine and asked for suggestions. I too would be unsure about the mohair ball, but knitted up it may look different?
    Like the blue ATC's

  2. I think the colours are all fab, Sharon. I can't wait to see the finished throw. Lynda xx

  3. Go for it, I think all the colours are great. There is orange in the top right hand ball too. Colinette Yarns are so tempting to buy, I can see why you got this collection.

  4. I agree with LaaLaa. I think they`re all gorgeous and once you start blending in the rusty orangey wool, it will knit-up beautifully. Clever you - it`s going to be gorgeous...but if you don`t like it when you`ve finished it, I`ll have it!lol

  5. I think they look fantastic and can't wait to see the end result.
