Color Me Happy !


Here is the Baby Sweater for My Daughters Friend who is having a Baby..
April requested there colors... So this is what I came up with... :)

I did it in the stripe sequence explained in Mag Knits..http://www.magknits.com/chilly04/patterns/fib.htm
I had to shorten my numbers because I did not want the stripes any wider.. So I did 2- 2- 4..
I think it workd out very well.. This way the colors " shift" and each one gets a wide and a narrow stripe... The colors are Red.. Black .. Gold and Green.. I used wool ease worsted weight...
Its a very " Happy Sweater".... Right !

Great sweater. Thanks for the link -- I have been searching for a way to "randomly" stripe 4 colors of some handspun.

That is the cutest little sweater. For some reason, your blog does not show up in your signature on the list, I have to go to the blog site, & type it in manually.

There's a "random" stripping therey I believe it's called "Fironnocci's Therey" I think. Anyway, each color is no. in rows totaling the previous two. For instance: say the colors are red/white/blue. Red 1 row; white 0 + 1, so 1 row white; blue 1+1, so 2 rows blue; red 1+2, so 3 rows red; white 3+2, so 5 rows; and so on. You can always set a max. row no. to do in a color. Or what I like doing is setting a max. no. of any given color, then start reversing the no's of each color.

Okay, I got distracted. You did excellant, but then you always do great work! I envy your talents.

p.s.
I always see your blog addy in signature on the list.

You really knit up some beautiful sweaters! I never know which ones to make or what yarn to use. Nice job!

What a great sweater and color combo! Different! 'Notice how the younger generation is going into darker colors for their babies!? I like it - great for a boy, (not too many good ones for boys!) Now back to your email! (Where was this sweater listed the first time I came to your blog from Knitters' Review?) lol
