It is very mysterious so mysterious that you should not read any further if you want to knit exploration station from westknits and do not want to see what is behind clue 1 and 2 .
I chose madelinetosh merino tosh light for this KAL with 4 fingering weigh yarns, holi festival, farmhouse white, neon peach and cardinal. I can almost write a mini quote with the name of the yarns. It will give the soul of my future shawl I guess … :)
———————The neon peach was high up on the tree, it was therefore a perfect start for the holi festival in the farmhouse white, the cardinal was pleased ———————————
Section 1 is a short row festival, you go and turn, then go and turn and you have some double yarn overs and then you go and turn. It is a very simple section, you keep following the short row until wedge 6 is accomplished.
Section 2, AH this section made my heart rate increased, Brioche is on the menu ! I have tried to knit syncopation adoration and I failed to make a descent brioche out for it ! it did not look promising…. but Westknits is a great guy so he made very cool video that explained all the different brioche techniques used in exploration station. However he is a continental knitter so it was a bit hard to follow when you are an english knitter. After a lot of close up observations and following the knitting yarn, I managed to translate to a language I know, the english style . I made two mini video on Brp and Brk on my instagram account.
here is what I have done so far :)
ok I better finish clue 2 ! I am wondering what will be clue 3 …. Intarsia :) why not! it is an exploration station after all !
