I love mystery knitting: the communal act of knitting a surprise project, along with a couple thousand people worldwide, illustrates so many of the things I love about being a spinner and a knitter during Internet times: so many strikingly different garments made from the same source pattern–the possibilities! And the community that pops up from the act of knitting together on Instagram and Ravelry is inspiring.
Ysolda’s Follow Your Arrow Two pattern is a pick-a-path-style knitalong, supplying knitters with two clues for each of the five weekly pattern dispatches. I went with BABAB.
I love how the garter stitch motifs pair with my neutral and orange handspun, handpainted Targhee. The feel of the yarn is so squishy and cozy, while striking a balance between the hazy bands of color and good stitch definition for the textured and lace motifs–
Follow Your Arrow #2 from ysolda teague, knit in handspun Targhee from the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club in Vulpes, Vulpes. With a little leftover white handspun Cormo striped in when I ran out of yarn.
