FO: Scy(nti)lla(ting)

18 Nov

Project Page: Scyntillating
Pattern: Scylla by Fiona Lucas
Yarn: Knit Picks Imagination Hand Painted Sock Yarn in Ruby Slippers
Made for: J’s birthday!

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.

      Really, once they’ve received the Feline Stamp of Approval, there’s nothing else to be said.
