Now this may sound a bit specific but my main colour inspiration in 2017 has been mustard with grey, mustard with black, hints of mustard throughout colour. Considering I do not like the condiment this is rather funny, don’t you think?
I have also found my love for cables, not just looking at them but biting the bullet and knitting them. And for me one of the knitted cable queens out there is Michele Wang. I have swooned over her jumper designs for a couple of years before biting the bullet and knitting some of the designs and love them.
For this Friday Favourite I am going to show you 2 of her designs in mustard yarn that I keep considering buying the suggested yarn for. The first one is this wrap. I have loved had this in my favourites since it was released I think.
I love the intricate cables in this design and the yarn sounds very luxurious. I have knitted with Yak before but not this brand so I would love to try it out some time soon. The yarn is mYak.
This yarn is spun in Italy from the soft undercoat of baby yaks, which is sourced directly from cooperatives of nomadic herders in Tibet.
mYak yarns are uniquely soft, warm, light weight, and strong.
The next item I want to share that I am dreaming of knitting is actually made using the exact same yarn and colourway. So I am not sure if I am just being a magpie towards mustard coloured Yak yarn. ha!
This is the Benedict Pullover. Is anyone else sensing a slight Sherlock theme here? Just me?
What I love about this design is how from the ribbing, there grow bigger cables, which spiral and twist into lines going up the jumper. I love those details, where if you follow the cables they flow through the whole design. I think I would make this with a tad less positive ease than is suggested.
Do you have a colour that you are attracted to and could just use over and over again?
