peachy


I love this colourway. I especially like the way the twisted bars of treble crochet show it off.

I'm not a huge fan of the colour orange. Pink is lovely but can get boring. But a pink-ish orange (i.e. peach): yummy. Trust me, its prettier in person, much less "fleshy" and it glistens with silvers - the digital camera is doing that thing it does with reds.

It's hipknits sockweight cashmere. I've had trouble finding the right project to showcase its gentle variegation. But I think I've found it. Inspired by some of Wormheads hats (see Lixie's WIP of one too) and, er, um, an Orange Broadband advert. These circles will eventually be a scarf. Joined loosely together and arranged rather randomly - like bubbles. Perhaps with the addition of a bit of brown merino to keep it order and set off the russets in the colourway. But I'll see when all the circles are done.

I've been using the adjustable ring method to start the circles off. It's easy and neat.

Oh, I think a scarf will be lovely! And I agree with you about the brown: it sets the pink off perfectly. I've admired those hats before, but couldn't see anyone I knew wearing one. (Except for me, at Glastonbury, which is a year away and might be a bit too much effort for a four-day-a-year garment. Athough they do look fun to make). But a scarf is a perfect idea! Now I'll just have to learn to crochet... No, scrap that. I'll just admire yours. :)

I really like that mix of orange and brown. very 60s, but the pink makes it more modern.

Crocheted circles always looked a bit wonky in the middle until I found the adjustable ring method. It was a life changing moment!

ooh, i just love all of your circles! i find crocheting in the round to be super tough. i can never find the right way to denote where the round begins. how do you do it?

i think that the brown merino will be a nice touch. go for it!

Go for the brown, it'll make it look really classy

I can't imagine making a scarf in this weather though!
