Notes

This project went into hibernation for about 2 years because I kept getting frustrated at how the colour runs in my Noro combinations were working out. Picking it up again Jan 2015.

Colour combos: Small Panels (2 balls Kureyon)
1) 205 C Blue/Green + 207 D Purple/Orange
2) 95 O Green/Yellow + 220 Blue/Brown
3) 185 F Purple/Orange + 199 A Green/Orange

Large Panels: (4 Kureyon)
1) PINK/BLUE “Black Samba” + GREEN/ORANGE 196 A / 214 C
2) GREEN/PURPLE 188 E (x 2) + BLUE/PINK 170 F (x 2)
3) ???

Extra Kureyon:

  • 184 E Turquoise/Pink/Brown
  • Unknown # Grey/Blue/White

June 10: Scratch that idea - after knitting about 70 rows of the large panel that combined the “Black Samba” kureyon with the lime green Cascade, the combination of solid colour with variegated made my eyeballs scream. Not cool. Frogged it all back and have decided to work with whatever Noro I have for now, then worry about maybe buying a few extra balls later if need be.

I frogged my delightful Maine mittens to get a second matching ball of Kureyon for a large panel sniff.

Jun 03: After making a BSJ, mittens and a few scarves, I don’t have quite enough Kureyon in my stash, so going to attempt to make the Large Panels by alternating 2 Kureyon and 1 skein of solid Cascade 220 each.
