I’m satisfied with these. The colorway is nice, the yarn base is nice, and the pattern is nice – I’m just not sure they all go together. The colorway is gorgeous and rich but might be better on a less fluffy yarn. The yarn base is wonderfully warm and squooshy but I think the brightness of the colorway is at odds with the homespun-rustic-comfort of the base. And the pattern does a nice job of breaking up pooling (and I always get awful pooling with KP yarns…), but it would do better in a yarn with more stitch definition, and possibly more variegation.
So, not the best planning on my part. I think they came out okay anyway.
Bonus: The cat approves.
