Suggestion Box

I am in the middle of a sweater that may or may not be done by Friday, but my more pressing work-in-progress is finding a suitable project (or projects, most likely) for these:

That's right! I got my hands on some Brooklyn Tweed Loft for Christmas! The colors are magnificent! I would like to use the top three colors (Faded Quilt, Blanket Fort, and Fossil) together and I was considering using the red (Homemade Jam) and brown (Barn Owl) for a Selbu Modern, but I'm not married to the idea. John might get a pair of gloves out of the black (Cast Iron), but I think we were hoping for a dark grey more than black. Oh well. I'll just have to get more Loft. :D

What I might even do is just keep them and gradually acquire all the colors. Then I can decide what to do with them.

In the meantime, any pattern suggestions you guys have would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Oh that yarn is gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you knit with it.

  2. My suggestion is to put them in a display case and just stare at them for a while ; )

  3. I don't have any great suggestions, but I'm totally jealous. There's not a single Jared Flood pattern that I don't like!

  4. gorgeous colours! I do wish it was easier to order yarn from the states, but we get hit with import tax it isnt worth the worry - I have almost been tempted by Loft though!

  5. You think acquiring more colors would make it easier to decide? That's never worked for me! I certainly understand the temptation though - the yarn looks gorgeous and I can only imagine the squish factor and heathery goodness that it has in person.

    I'll keep an eye out for patterns...

  6. They really are lovely little skeins. :D I might just have to frame them and hang them on the wall!

    Christine, I had read that Loop in London will be getting Brooklyn Tweed yarns, so you can probably order it there when they get it cheaper than from here. I can't have you going without it! :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
