Third attempt..and this one better stick!
Remember this? This is how far I got before I decided to frog it. It was looking way too much like tie dye and all the red was bugging the crap out of me. My second attempt involved farmhouse from this first attempt and a skein of golden olive from knitting notions. Ehh...not so much. I really wanted to use the golden olive for a pair of socks but was willing to sacrifice the skein if it was going to work. Fortunately, to my advantage, it didn't. My third (and hopefully final attempt!) consists of a tvyarn from white oak studio in the Anne of Green Gables colorway and some hand-dyed gifted to me from a stitchmarker exchange pal that comes from Raven Frog Fiber Arts (in Alaska). The yarn is called Elegante and the colorway is Kelp Bed. Here's what I've got so far:Now this color combo I absolutely love. It was hard finally finding a combo (in my stash!) that would work but I did it and it was worth it.
