I’m going to Alaska soon…and to get in the mood, the Net Loft had a Muckle-Mitt-knit-a-long. Ok I am so lame I forgot to tell you about it here on the blog, but I did let my Ravelry group know…and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen my progress. The yarn is from a kit the Net Loft folks put together with their own exclusive Three Irish Girl’s yarn and Dale of Norway Heilo. The special Cordova Colorway I got is called Sandpiper – the cheery yellows really brightened an otherwise gloomy day. Check my Rav group and the Net Loft’s Ravelry group for other colorways. Here are the latest images.
At first I was afraid the variegated yarn wouldn’t work, the dark brown was very close in value to the solid charcoal. But the pattern motif is graphic enough that the pattern does not disappear. I especially love the little bits of light blue!
Ok, I got obsessed and started a reverse colorway. Here the pattern is a bit harder to see, but I still like it. I think it will become clearer once I’m finished. I may not have enough yarn for a pair, but I could not resist!!!
Check out this AMAZING ALASKAN EVENT, a week long adventure in fiber crafts, June 22-29, 2014!
What the NetLoft says:
We invite you to come join us for an Alaska Fiber Arts weeklong adventure set in Cordova, Alaska, a coastal fishing community nestled between the snowcapped peaks of the Chugach Mountains and the scenic shores of Prince William Sound.
Workshops, lectures, hands-on activities, knit and chat sessions, interlaced with outdoor wildlife experiences, will feature a unique blend of instructors from both around the country and from within our local region.
The Net Loft’s purpose for this event is to create an engaging learning environment to strengthen skills, to encourage the mutual exchange and appreciation of fellow fiber artists, while savoring the value of both old and new friendships.
