Hitchhiker

yarma 
I had so much fun knitting my Iron Maiden with my Ombre Mini Skeins, that as soon as I finished it, I cast on for a Hitchhiker in the December yarn.  This is the first yarn in the Mini Skein Club that I’ve gotten that is a Gradient instead of an Ombre and I love it just as much!  It goes from an eggplant purple to a bright orange.  I decided to start with purple because I prefer purple to orange and it seemed to me that it would look like I used more of the first color than the last color, because it would have more of the “teeth.”  I realize that realistically, there should be the same number of stitches for each color, but our eyes play tricks on us sometimes and I think that starting with purple at the narrow end will make it seem like I used it more.  This might or might not work out that way, but for now I’m convinced that it will.

I’m on the fourth color now, a red orange that bridges between the hot pink and the bright orange.  (It doesn’t show up as well in photos as it does in real life, but the last couple inches or so by the needle are knit in the red orange.)  This group of colors is called Crush Gradient or something, but it reminds me of Fruit Loops!  It’s just so happy and fun and perfect for knitting while it’s so cold outside.
