One of the things I love about Meg’s yarns (from Twisted Fiber Art) is their richness of color. She has many colorways that I love but one that I frequently think may be an actual favorite is Minstrel.
I’m doing a lot of swatches for her recently, mostly evolution swatches, and I recently got Minstrel to do. Here is how the evolution swatch came out:
I just love those colors. The wine fading into oranges with just enough of the right green just make me feel happy. I’ve made a couple of things in Minstrel already. Here’s a hat I made, kindly modeled by my granddaughter Hazel:
This hat was designed to showcase an unblocked stitch pattern which looks so very different when blocked – it’s the same pattern as my Blaze shawl I showed you yesterday.
Another hat in Minstrel was made with one of my favorite of Meg’s yarn bases, Buxom. Here Franklin models it:
I love how this hat turned out.
And the final product I’ve made in Minstrel (so far) is my pair of Perpendicular socks that will be appearing in Think Outside the Sox, due to come out in May. I love how this pattern shows off the colors in this yarn.
I definitely doubt that I’m done knitting with Minstrel – and I sure hope not!
