Yarn & Ink: The Weekender and a fall ink palette.

Normally July and August are not the time to knit a toasty warm wool sweater, but I don’t always play by the rules. Over the summer Ana and some of the folks in our knitting group decided to do an impromptu knit along of Andrea Mowry’s The Weekender sweater. Ana used a wool/cotton blend, but I decided to pull some handspun out of my stash of yarns (just like stash of inks!) and see what I could come up with.

The sweater ended up in a decidedly fall palette and today I thought it would be fun to try and pull some ink combos! My favorite is the following:

Clearly I could have pulled a million other colors from the sweater… What other ink colors do you see?

  1. Gorgeous sweater! You do beautiful work! Looks like I see a pinky salmon color as well. I’m thinking Papier Plumes’ Azalea (don’t let the name fool you – it’s a pinky salmon color).

  2. That is such a gorgeous colorway and a great knit. I keep meaning to knit this pattern; seeing yours makes me want to jump it to the forefront of my queue!
