and apparently I’m not the only one struck by it.. I’m not sure if there’s anything I can do about it. At this point I’m just going with the flow without really knowing when it will end. I decided that it’s better to enjoy the whole process rather than fighting it.. I’m going to lose anyway 😛
Meet Altocumulus. I had bought these yarns for other purposes, but they looked so cute together. I’ve been fascinated with brioche stitch ever since my grandmother gave me a brioche stitch beret a looong time ago. I was really amazed by the squishiness of the fabric.
I have a very hard time finding names for designs, but this one actually named itself. It reminds me of the times when the summer sky is filled with cute altocumulus clouds. They’re usually formed in little patches that look like sheep in the sky, but sometimes they’re connected, forming streaks of fluffy white clouds.
I love these yarns because they’re really cheap, but not too bad for quick projects (or experiments). That’s also the reason I’m de-stashing right now. I’m tired of the cheap and crappy yarns and one of my new years resolutions is to only buy nice yarns. You spend so much time working on knitting/ crochet projects and then you end up with an ‘okay’ project instead of an ‘awesome’ one.
But before I can do that I need to turn the balls of yarn into FO’s 🙂
