Two knitting project updates this week. I finished Cecily Glowik MacDonald's Brooklet cowl using Skein Top Drawer Sock (oh how lovely!) in Rusty Rock and Sandstone. These two colors were paired for a Jared West shawl club, but I repurposed them for this cowl. I loved knitting the pattern. It was quick and satisfying.
And I finally got a chance to bleach out my Alexandria Cardigan a/k/a Ancient Writings. I had knit this in Madelinetosh Tosh DK in the Calligraphy color way. It shifts in different lights. While indoors (and in my photographs) it is a beige/grey, in daylight it is pink/purple. Definitely not for me. My solution was to strip the color out, which was sad, since it defeated the purpose of knitting in a hand-dyed yarn. I think, however, that the end result is more wearable.
