|Lovely pattern, poor adaptation.|
After I finished the first sock I realized that it was bad. It did not fit, the stitches were too loose, the yarn hid the lace... I had no other option that to frog the whole thing. I also realized that changing the pattern would not fix the problem. It was the yarn. The yarn didn't want to be socks, socks that were very likely to be unused.
I browsed Ravelry projects to get some fresh ideas, and soon I fell in love with a Haruni shawl made with my sock reluctant yarn. And it seems that Haruni and Regia Hand-Dye Effect are match made in heaven. The soft and natural color transitions really work with the lace, not against it like in my previous shawls. It also made me fall in love with the yarn. I want more of it!
|Showing off some colors, unrealistically of course.|
|Showing off colors, this time more realistically.|
|Random Niila cuteness|
|My lovely girls chilling.|
Papu is a beauty, isn't she? I hope that one day Niila learns how to model too. Right now she's just too eager. She wouldn't say still for a second. And she would probably try to eat whatever I'd make her to wear. Uh-oh.
Finnish Summary: Regia Hand-Dye Effect ei halunnut taipua sukiksi, joten tein langasta sen sijaan Haruni-huivin. Huivista tuli tosi hyvä ja langastakin tuli sen jälkeen uusi suosikkini.
