Checking the Trekking Stash
Signing up was the easy part. I’m now faced with the daunting task of choosing a colorway, not to mention a pattern. I dug through my stash this morning and pulled out several skeins of Trekking.
Which one will make the cut?
The marled shades (#100 and #108):
or the variegated (#07 and #09):
or some solid colors:
or some ragg-type colorways:
At first I intended to use colorway #100, but saw that a huge percentage of the participants in the knitalong have already selected that colorway. Can’t be one of the bunch now, can I.
At this point I’m leaning toward colorway #07 which is pretty mix of purples and blues and pinks. The colors in that skein are kinda muted and "dusty," not the screaming crayon colors I hate. Plus, the skein was a gift from Kadri and I typically knit up gifted skeins before ones I purchase myself. As much as I love to buy yarn, it’s much more fun to knit with yarn that’s been received as a gift.
