ANOTHER KAL! after the westknits KAL and the Niceandkni KAL, along came the pompom autumn KAL!
I was flicking through the pages of the pretty magazine PomPom issue 9 and found that this Ananas cosmosus by Sarah Garry had something nice and juicy about it. I decided to use only stash yarn and I refused to make my ananas, ananas colour! My ananas will be like a rainbow psychedelic Bromeliaceae that screams for light!
I will use the rest of Break me down from Countess Ablaze, black, grey yarn. the exact same colour combinations than the Westknits lumpy space I knitted not long ago ! You can see in the picture above that the yarns have obvious different knitting gauge which will make the intarsia knitting challenging or maybe impossible …. We shall see ….
I have a confession to make: I don’t like singlet ! It is very hard for me to transition from long sleeves, mini sleeves to No sleeves. The transition from winter to summer comes always with a singlet moment. I start to wear it then I take it off, I wear it again and take it off then again and again and the final result always end up with me wearing a t-shirt aaaah much better !!! why am I like that ??? maybe it is my winter white fluorescent arms all uncovered that make me uncomfortable….. Who knows….
BUT, I do wear singlet not very often, but I do. The aim of this project is to dismantle my dislike of singlet by wearing a handmade one, made with love! I think it will significantly change my relationship to singlets! If you want to see how ugly or pretty this little guy will be you should stay in touch :O)
