Work in Progress Wednesday - {22-02-12} Rainbow Madness

Tamis

Hello Wednesday *waves*
It’s all Rainbow madness in my house at the moment, what with me knitting the Pogona in my hand dyed yarn, and updating my Etsy shop with all my Rainbow and Fantasy colour ways, and not forgetting more Rainbow dyeing will be taking place over the next few days LOL
Now that i have finished my Peacock cardigan (you can see FO Here) the Pogona was just what i needed to get me inspired to knit again, initially when I looked at the pattern, I was a bit confused if I was getting the set up rows correct, last year I would have ether ran a mile in the other direction or begged for help lol, so I am quite proud of myself for sticking with it and working it out on my own.
Now I know what I am doing, I am really enjoying the rows and watching it grow, I think the Rainbow yarn works beautifully with the pattern, and I can’t Waite to wear it when it is done :D
So on to the pictures, I have taken pictures of both the right side and wrong side, because the variation of the yarn and stitches are just stunning even if I do say so myself :D






Ok may have over done it with the pictures, but I just couldn’t choose between them! The first couple of pictures show the “wrong side” but I think it is equally as pretty: D
In light of all this Rainbow Madness, I announced on my Facebook page yesterday that I felt it was only right to have a Rainbow give away {squeee} this afternoon I will dyeing a skein of yarn for one you lucky readers, and there will also be a few other rainbow themed prizes as well :D but I will save that for Friday.{ If you’re a “liker” on my Facebook page your get a sneak preview later }
I have also been making Stitch markers, and wrote a Tutorial yesterday which can be seen here :D
Hope you have a lovely day everyone :) xx

  6. Oh hey, that looks pretty neat! I dig it.

    I think my favorite colorways in your shop might be older ones - Mogwai and Witches Brew. Also liking Latanya.
