Anyway, here's what I really wanted to show you on Artemis:
This is a pattern called Spokes. I saw it on Ravelry and immediately went stash-diving to see what I could experiment with. As you may have gathered, I'm addicted to modular knitting and to combining yarns and colors.
You start at the neck, which allows you to see if your yarn combo is working:
Then yesterday while working my Friday afternoon shift at ST I ran across a new Madelinetosh Merino Light color called Optic and fell in love. I've combined it with an ancient skein of Misti Alpaca Sock in a color I don't think is made anymore:
This, folks, is why we keep stash. You run across some yarn that's really gorgeous. Then at some point two yarns or a yarn+pattern will suddenly work and you can't stop knitting. Started this second Spokes last night.
More photographs to come in the next few days. Artemis and I (and the bees) have been busy.
