Wandering Cat Yarns had a KAL going throughout the year 2012. I knit several projects with WCY, and posted pictures of my FO's on their Wandering Cat Yarns Ravelry group. In the end I was a lucky winner of one of the three prizes.
I was asked to pick a pattern from all the sock and shawl patterns on Ravelry, and was that ever a hard choice to make! I also got some custom dyed yarn with it.
It's really hard to capture the depth of the big skein. The colorway is called Dragon Stone. It's Wandering Cat Yarns Twisted Slinky Cat and has a whooping 600yds!!! This has to become a shawl some day.
The golden skein is called English Toffee, Wandering Cat Yarns Alley Cat BFL. The green skein was a purchase I made, and Rhonda stuck it into the package with the others. It's called Fern Gully, also WCY Alley Cat BFL.
The pattern I've chosen is Hex by Cookie A. Now I have the hardship to decide which yarn to use first for this pattern. I have many suitable skeins, here are a few examples. I think I will knit this pattern more than once. It really appeals to me.
Hex with English Toffee:
Hex with Fern Gully:
and Hex with Chimney Sweep:
But before I decide on the yarn, and wind it, I'm going to finish up Maggie's new sweater.
Thank you Rhonda and Valerie! You are awesome Ladies!
