If design were to be contrived as a recipe, this unusual combination would be the making of this week’s release, Snow Showers.
“Ingredients” – inputted by God throughout the past 25 years!
1 part Christmas gift box – Christmas 2019 (reused from 2018, 2017, 2016, 😉 you get the idea)
1 part choir music from elementary school – yep that’s the 25 years ago reference. In elementary school choir we sang “Solitary Snowflake” by Jerry Estes. Now I don’t have any recordings from my school, but this gives you the feel… and fashion of the day! https://hallmanmusic.weebly.com/solitary-snow-flake.html
2 parts yarn… plus 2 more parts yarn – originally selected by Malabrigo Quickies program, I admit to having a designer brain miscalculation with this design. In my submission to be part of the 2020 Quickies, I carefully (uh-hum) calculated out how long I could create a two-color neck-thing design. What I failed in was the fact it was double knit. Since cotton doesn’t float cleanly, I used double knitting instead to achieve the look… and completely forgot it ate double the yarn! But the fun news is a sister pattern is on it’s way (and hopefully we’ll have snow for the photo shoot).
Shake vigorously and reveal!
Happy knitting on your Snow Showers!
And stay tuned to see what happened when I found 2 more skeins arrived 😉.
