Something New, And It's Not A Sock!

Stole Dunes

Don't be alarmed, I am still working on a pair of socks, but I decided to start something else as well.  This is the Stole Dunes wrap, knit in Malabrigo Sock in Cote D'Azure (Color A) and Indonesia (Color B).  The pattern is designed by Svetlana Gordon and I've been drooling and favorite-ing her designs for several years now.  I finally decided to start knitting one.  

Stole Dunes

The pattern sample is knit in a long color change yarn, using only one colorway for both the background and foreground by starting in two different places in the color repeat.  I decided to use two different colors, using a mostly solid navy for the background and the multicolored Indonesia colorway for the foreground.  I haven't knit a swatch, but I think this pattern would actually work in a single, light colored solid color.  There's a definite texture difference between the background and foreground "waves."  I think it's a really striking design, but once I'd worked through the first repeat and figured out what was going on, I was able to watch TV pretty easily while I work on it.

Last week we went down to Galveston to move Caleb out of his dorm.  We ended up driving home in a really bad thunderstorm, but we all made it safely and we're so glad to have him home.  Last fall semester he came home several times for hurricanes and tropical storms, but this spring he stayed there and between the freak winter weather with rolling blackouts and Logan's extended recovery from his foot surgery, we didn't make it down to visit him either.  Fortunately, he wasn't homesick like he was last fall when he first went away, but he's happy to be back home too.

Oh! I like that pattern. I have an Advent set from Miss Babs that I've been trying to decide what to do with. I might use this pattern, joining the minis with a Russian join or magic knots to save from weaving in ends.

I love the look of that wrap! There are so many possibilities for the color choices, hmmm. This could be a great stash diving project.
