Two days in a row with finished knitting projects to show. Today's wrap has been my fat needle, unshaped, easy-knit relief from Peasy.
Unlike most of my knits, this one is not for me. It's a commission! LOL! I've always wanted to say that and in this case it's not entirely untrue. The piece is a wrap I knit for someone who fell in love with the colours of the yarn then looked at me with big brown eyes to say "But I can't knit."
Using Indie by Sirdar, in shade 0150, the colours are those of a New Mexico sunset. The customer loved them all - except the eggplant. She asked if I could cut that out of the ball of yarn to focus more on the orange and pink. Sure. Since the ball contained a lot of eggplant, it meant losing a lot of yarn.
Not being a deep purple fan myself, I could see her point, and I love the finished look. Just enough eggplant to give contrast to the lighter shades but no so much that it is a 'purple' wrap.
Bet she will love it. Do give us a report!!!!
I knew the second your page opened up on my screen that couldn't be something for you...all the wrong colours for sure and you're not a "wrapper" are you?
A perfect call, that I probably wouldn't have thought of, to cut back on the purple. It would have been totally different, and I've already viewed the results (on PS.)
NM sunset does have a lot of purple...
