This is the Day 2 post of the Knitting and Crochet Blog Week IV (for more details, read here). Today's task is to think of a project / colour / yarn that embodies the house that I think I belong to. For more details on all houses, read here.
Yesterday I blogged about why I think I belong to the house of Monkey. Monkeys like to be challenged all the time with something new and interesting, and always seem to have fun doing it.
To design a knit has always been a dream. This event has helped me to come up with something that I would really like to make in the future - I have sketched it as my mascot project. Its a tunic dress. The yoke is entrelac - a technique which fascinates me but I've never tried. The body is/would be knit in plain stockinette with colour gradients as it progresses towards the hem. The waist would be ribbed to give a nice shape.
Yes, I have the exact yarn in mind too - my Rowan tapestry which I've not yet used in the hope of using it for an entrelac project someday.
I entered this event two days late, but am catching up. Am almost ready with infographic meant for Day 3. Will be up soon.
