Seaming & Edging yarn: not here.
(Knit Picks! grr argh.)
Last night I lined up the squares in terms of intensity, saturation, and hue-- and essentially worked from one light corner to one dark. I didn't like how it looked. It was too predictible and didn't rely on the playful quality and sensibility of the rich, wonderful color in these blocks. So, I decided to go with a random colorblock-- something that would appease the aesthetics of, say, Gaudi's tilework at Park Guell or Sagrada Familia.
I think this arrangement works, but I'm still considering a few square moves. Any suggestions?
I'm sure you all know the major knitting news by now: Eunny Jang has been named the new editor of Interweave Knits. I couldn't be more delighted. Her blog has inspired many of us for the past year and a half. In terms of her design, Franklin Habit may have said it best on 11/15/06: "Eunny, honey, you're really giving She Who Litigates in Scottish Courts a run for her money." She's rare in both her intense love of traditional designs translated and updated for the now, and for her generous patterns and articles on technique.
Congratulations, Eunny and IK! Excellent choice. Let's see if the magazine will transend the quality of it's first years of production.
Have I subscribed to IK in the past 24 hours?- absolutely.
