Luna Grey Fiber Arts Ariel
1856 yards in stash


Decided to knit a second version. This time using Ariel in Mishigami color way.

Swatching for some mod ideas I have.


Decided to marl stripes. Using some white fingering weight yarn from deep stash. Possible Kroy Sock but have no idea since label is long gone.

Thinking of a Breton inspired striping with mark that would stop on chest below armholes. Also considering adding some type of sleeve.


Went with Breton influenced striping and ended stripe sequence halfway up armhole and continued with MC held singly.

Neckband and arm finishing, I held MC double.

After completing and trying it on, I’ve decided to skip adding sleeves. Very happy with how it turned out. Now for a final wash and block before photos.
