Your Swatch Is Ready
September 19, 2003
I hate to interrupt our regularly scheduled rodent programming, but in yesterday’s mail I got your Birch remnant in Kid Silk Haze, shade “Lord” (that’s missing a ‘y’ at the end, don’t you think?), which you wanted me to check out for the ruffles on the Elfin I’m knitting for you in the CurlsandPurlsNYC knitalong. At first I thought it was too blue for the charcoal Felted Tweed we had in mind. I swatched up some of the charcoal, and voila:
OK, needless to say I need to go down a needle size as my 23 stitches are 11 cm wide instead of 10, but could we just get off my back about that for a minute? In the pic, the Felted Tweed reads a little browner and duller than it is, but I think the combo is perfect. The Lord (the yarn, not THE Lord) tones down the brown flecks in the charcoal, picks up the blue flecks, and will give an overall midnight blue aura to Elfin Ann’s Way. I say it’s a go but of course it’s your call. Will post the swatch for your review.
As always, we appreciate your business.
The next round of Buffaritas is on me. Here’s to Buffy!
