It’s all about the joy of knitting and weaving gradients today… let’s ombré all the things! I must say, rainbows and gradients are bringing significant joy to my life right now.
For the past several weeks, I’ve been filming nearly every day so that I could create the content for the new Handwoven Colour workshop all about weaving sock blank scarves. It totalled almost 5 hours of video footage spread over 240 videos and there’s so much I wish I could show you!
Everything has been about gradients and ombré… so much so that it’s infiltrated my knitting plans. In today’s episode of Taking Back Friday, I talk about modifying the Chauncey sweater design by Isabell Kramer so that I can use a gradient Party of Five. As well, I share about the new Mini Colour Fade sets that we’ve made. And I do a little preview of the scarves that I wove for the workshop.
