Jigsawing away

I’m obsessed! I can’t seem to stop.

Do you find that you deep dive into some projects? I do if I’m learning something new. This Jigsaw blanket is a modular workshop for me. Working with 2 strands is also new to me and coupling colours together for the marl affect is an adventure.

Have you taken on something intriguing?

I am finding that some of my pairings didn’t work well. This is a beautiful blue green with a speckled beige sock yarn. The blue shade is gone, and to my eye, it looks hunter green now with speckles. Not a fan of that one.

I love the coral and red together. I was using really tiny left over balls as the second colour. Ran out of red so added a small ball with a bit more yellow in it and the bottom is a multicolored bit with some orange in it.

Isn’t this one beautiful? Teal green and teal blue together. Yummy.

Blue plus a blue-green handpaint. This is lovely too.

Now I think I have a better idea of what’s going to happen when I pair up two colours. I’m trying not to be too smug, ha. I’m probably headed for a fall. Still quite a long way to go yet.

How are your projects coming along?

Cheers, Deb

  1. I’m finding Entre Lac socks a bit of a challenge, but sticking with it! And having lots of fun with an Irish Moss sweater.
    Love trying new things, like mixing colours!

  2. Hi, Deb, it’s good to see your post. I’ve learned by experience that two-stranded color combinations should be swatched first, so that you can observe how the combined colors look. Your current project seems to do just that.

  3. A perfectly lovely blanket!!! Who cares what goes with what!! It all looks terrific in the end. I love it. Does this mean I have to take a Stephen West class to learn how????
