I’ve been plugging away at the Homecoming Cardi over the last week, so much so I haven’t touched a test knit for a week. I’m not worried, it’s not due until mid October. I think it is the mix of bright colors and the ease of the mosaic stitch pattern that has me picking it up.
I’m using Knit Picks Mighty Stitch in Pucker, a neon pink, as my main color and am pairing it with Knitty and Color’s Unicorns vs. Sharpie’s colorway. It’s kind of like a neon rainbow dipped in a black rinse. I love all the little pops of color that shine through the bright pink. I am thinking of pulling one of the colors from the contrast color out to do a different solid colored sleeve. Right now I’m considering Mighty Stitch in Eggplant since I’ve got it in my stash. It’s a nice deep purple that looks really pretty against the bright pink.
Jellybean wanted to show off her neon rainbow tee while I was trying to take a picture. I also wanted to show off her Dogs for Biden Harris t-shirt, I picked it up from Pawmiscuous. She’s got cute bandanas and t-shirts in her shop.
Honestly, this election means so much this year and I feel like I can’t stay silent about it. I’m angry about how COVID-19 was managed here and I feel like the United States is spiraling out of control into chaos. It is so bizarre to watch everything unravel, but I remain hopeful. So here’s to voting and knitting and remaining sane in these crazy times.
