Working with Scheepjes – a Colour Riot

I love Scheepjeswol Cotton 8.  I knew I would, but I think it might be my new favourite cotton yarn.  I love that it’s soft, and I love that it doesn’t have the mercerized look and I LOVE the colours!

For my latest design I’m using the beautiful shades of yellow, working on an ombre look.  There’s quite a bit of experimentation going on with rows and colours to get the gradient just right.  It’s difficult because my brain wants me to make sure all the rows are even, but the look is much better if it’s not.

Because I’m making a spring project, I’m wanting lots of space between stitches, I decided on the V-Stitch, which is absolutely perfect.  I’m now working on the courage to come up with a video tutorial on how to do the stitch, especially for other lefties like me.  But I need my own Dorothy and perhaps a trip to Oz for that.  We shall see…

I love the way the V-Stitch looks, and for this project I’m using two strands together, which gives it a great textured look too.

But what will the project be?  Well, that remains to be seen! Here are a few hints:
