Recurring theme

These were peeking out of my knitting bag and it struck me that the colour combo is becoming a bit of a theme. There’s the header, that italian fabric from earlier and now this. I even have two memory sticks, one blue, one orange.

Blue and orange

The blue is Cherry Tree Hill’s Sockittome in ‘Moody Blues’; the orange is a flax in ‘Tangerine’ obtained at a ridiculously cheap price from Discount Brand Name Yarns.
I haven’t worked with flax before so I’m doing some stitch doodles to see what comes out. I’m planning to handwash them and then throw them in the dryer to see how they soften.
I’d like to do a constructed summer jacket with the flax. Panels, sewn, intersecting lace and plain stitch – a combination of drape and structure.

Christmas gift making is proceeding at an orderly pace and is a great way to slide into the festive season. I hope they like them.
