Obsessed: Gneiss

I love pattern releases so I’ve been eagerly anticipating seeing the latest patterns in the fall 2017 issue of Amirisu. They were finally uploaded yesterday and there is one pattern in particular that I’m completely obsessed with.

Meet Gneiss. It’s dk weight (Hello, Miss Babs stash!), suggests highly contrasting yarn (my specialty) and can be a color explosion. These all scream DWJ. The only thing that made me pause was that it has intarsia. Well, I’m so in love with it I started watching YouTube videos with intarsia and I’m determined to tackle this one. I’ve been hesitant to really deal with colorwork but I want this sweater, so it must be done. I’m also taking a two color brioche class starting next week because I have got to make this vest for my sisters!

So my obsession leads me to learn. What is something you’re trying to learn with your knitting?
