I am truly enamored with Kieran Foley's designs. His use of color is awesome and I particularly love his work with stacked centers quadruple decreases. Plus I had some yarn I've been wanting to try out as well, Wunderkleckse (from Schoppel) which is created by splotch-dyeing a pre-knit piece and then wound into a ball. I wanted to see how it would show up in Kieran's Jasper Lace, hoping for intriguing color pooling.
I've only just begun it and so far, it is a wonderful knit -- I love how it is developing. Plus it is ideal in that it keeps my interest though doesn't require super-concentration; I can knit while binge-watching British cop shows, my favorite evening indulgence. :-)
Well, as happens in knitting, this particular combo didn't work. I found the yarn colorway too "busy" and lost the stitch design within it. So I am frogging it and will start something else. Not a hardship -- it is wonderful that in knitting and crocheting, one can do so with no damage to yarn or anything. And there are so many wonderful designs and glorious yarns; I love that I can try yet another combination...
