I just picked up an order of beautiful Sokkusu O from Ling for our Trunk Show at The Knitting Hut on the 27th.
I love this yarn for stripes! The yarn is springy in feel, and there are some great Spring colours here.
I just had to make up some fresh colour pairings for Stay Awhile, ready to share with everyone on the day.
I had a play with Galactic, a vibrant purple, and Cabaret, a new raspberry pink which Ling made specially for me to mix with the other colours. Thanks Ling!
Bold and beautiful: Cabaret & Squink
Perfect tonal purples: Galactic & Squink
Very juicy: Jam Sessions & Galactic
Galactic picks out the purple flecks in Thistle
Going from Spring into Summer with Cabaret & Spring Storm
Evening tones with Cabaret & HB2
Which would you pair? Galactic & Lavender Fields, or Lavender Fields & Lapis?
And…our current knitalong is also making me think of using pairs of Sokkusu O for Foolproof. Wouldn’t that be so gorgeous to knit and wear?
Foolproof works really well in pairs of solids, or in a variegated and solid yarn together.
So, which colours would you choose, and what will you make this Spring?
