Will's Gansey, so that yarn has been in the stash 5 years. Ahem. It's .not the oldest yarn in the stash, in fact it's a relative new comer. Perhaps there needs to be a "shop from the stash" resolution in my near future.
The pattern was made up as I went along, using a stitch chart for the cable on the back. If there's interest I'll write it up and put it on Ravelry as a free pattern. But really, there are a ton of patterns for these things already up. I just couldn't find one that looked like the one in my head.
The background for the glove covers is the prayer shawl from two posts ago. I also posted a new picture of the shawl in that post.
Now comes decision time:
I have to wind a warp for the Jennifer Moore double weave workshop next Tuesday. My warp calls for 4 light and 4 dark colors. Since it's double weave there are effectively two layers each of which alternates light and dark, while the layers also alternate dark and light. So here are my wraps:
Here are some other ways of arranging them:
I think this one just leaves the gold and brown out there by themselves.
While this one mixes things up a bit. I think it's the most visually interesting, but it doesn't alternate lights and darks.
I'm not sure this one will make sense with the gold and brown in the same layer.
While I look at these photo's, I think the very first wrapping will work, except to switch the gold and blue on the bottom row.
Tell me, what do you think? Quickly please....I have to get this thing wound and on the loom on Saturday.
