I've taken a little break from the Crow Waltz shawl - not that I don't love it, I've just gotten a little distracted.
Last week, Baby Nora's daddy asked me if they could pay me to knit some fall/winter clothes for Nora. I informed him that I have a strict policy of not knitting for money - however, I'm more than happy to knit for free for the people I care about, which includes him and his little family.
As you can see, I opted for just two colours instead of several, as most people have done on Ravelry. I love the multi-colour versions, but I just wasn't in the mood to dye up that much yarn.
Nora's mom is apparently all in love with greyish-purples right now, so I mixed a few dyes and came up with "Duchess". I have to applaud her good taste - I love this colour so much I want my own sweater from it. I will definitely be making more for the shop.
Due to the nature of the Pinwheel Jacket, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to showcase Mom's "Chromacolour" yarns. This one is "Raisin" and I started it dark to light, though you could easily go either way.
I've just got the sleeves left. I'm debating on doing them in solid Duchess, or half Duchess and half Raisin. I'll keep you posted on the outcome!
