I think you may remember me mentioning a few weeks ago that I was going to start Elfe by Astrid Schramm. I couldn't decide on my colors so I went back and forth and even asked my Candy Skein Ravelry group. I finally decided on Grape Soda, as I'm using Candy Skein Yummy fingering. Then I thought I was going to use Foil Wrapper, but the Sugar Snap Pea kept pulling me toward it....
So I picked these two, Grape Soda and Sugar Snap Pea in Candy Skein Yummy fingering. This picture is really closely accurate for the color, and the pics below aren't.
This is how far I got. I haven't been able to work on it since, but I'm already half way through the sleeve increases, and two green stripes in. I LOVE it so far and I have to say the pattern is amazingly fun and easy. I see myself making a ton of these in different colors (and solids) if it fits good.
I'm trying to make the stripes as jogless as possible and I think it doesn't look too bad. This is the first one and the second looks even better!
That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of the week and I'll see you on Friday!

Oops I messed up. I entered my link, then when I went to check it, I somehow managed to post a second link to my last WIP Wednesday (from way back in May - aargh I've been a bad blogger). I'd delete link #76 if I knew how.ReplyDelete
