Hooray, it's here!

I'm very pleased to say that today is the Ziggy Interrupted pattern release day!

As usual, you can pop across to Ravelry using the link above (or down below) to see all the nitty gritty of the pattern information and indeed, get yourself a copy if you feel so inclined.

But if you want to stick around for a bit, I usually like to try and explain a little bit about how my patterns come about and the inspiration behind the design.


I must admit, I'm drawing a bit of a blank on what ignited the little spark behind this latest 'Ziggy' incarnation.  I suppose it's just about as a result of my other Ziggy designs.   First there was the Getting Ziggy Shawl, then more recently, the Getting Ziggy Squared² Blanket.  One thing must have led to others...



I do know that this started off a little simpler, the original idea being a long scarf of ziggy zags with the small squares only featuring at the very ends.  It turns out that didn't please my need for symmetry though, which I talked about in one of my podcasts.  So I decided to add more squares in sections throughout the scarf and make a bit of a feature of them.

And I'm soooo glad I did!  I love and adore the effect that they create and they way it breaks up the stripes and makes the whole thing so much more interesting.  Plus it adds a fab opportunity for some extra colour play, which is something I can't get enough of.

Of course, you don't need to add so many squares if you don't want to.  This pattern will be nice and easy to adapt, by adding or removing square panels or changing the number of stripes you could choose to make the scarf more straightforward or more intricate, shorter, longer, whichever suits you best.

It'd also be a quite simple matter to see how to make the scarf wider or more narrow if you wanted to do that.  Which could be handy if you fancy trying out a different yarn weight.... and I must admit, I'm sooo tempted to make a bigger, blankety version of this!


I also had a small quandary over the question of choosing pom-poms or tassels to decorate the lovely little pointed ends.  I ended up going to the fab folk on Instagram to see if that swayed me and I was happy to see a land-slide victory for tassels.  Now they are on of course, it seems the only right way to go.

The hardest part of this whole project, if you ask me, is choosing the yarn colours.  The original is made with 4ply (fingering) weight yarn and so it's a perfect opportunity to combine some of those treasured single skeins of sock yarn you might be hoarding.  It's just choosing that's not so simple, it certainly took me a while!

I listed all the details of the ways I used the colours in my scarf, and I've also included a little space for you to plan out your own colour combinations too, so hopefully that'll help you with some colour planning, if that's what you like to do too.

I also had the pleasure of working with some fabulous testers for this pattern and I thought it might be nice to show you some of their lovely versions too.  It gives me a chance to say a big thank you to them and to show you a little more colour inspiration to get you started..

Calling all Stylecraft Special fans!

The four brand new shades of Special DK are in my hands (a free gift) and will be making their way into your local yarn shops as we speak, and following into online shops slightly after.  But of course, we can't sit around and wait for that to happen, I don't doubt for a moment, that like me, you'll want the see more right now.

At first glance, you might not realise these shades are new.
While it's true to say that there are similarities in this selection to some already familiar hues in the range, I do think that there are some subtle and welcome differences and additions.


Let's have a closer look...


Top L-R: Stone, Toy, Buttermilk. Bottom L-R: Cream, Apricot, Camel

The first new shade to look at is toy.

Without any other reference to go by, you might guess that this was Stone, but actually, when you see the two colours together, the toy is a clearly and distinctly paler tint.  With maybe even a slight smidge of Apricot warmth added.  It sits perfectly with the stone and could maybe even work well as a beautifully rich and warm cream.

Here it is below with the next two closest shades of Stone and Buttermilk so you can really see the difference.

L-R: Stone, Toy, Buttermilk

Top L-R: Clematis, Powder Pink, Candy Floss.  Bottom L-R: Soft Peach, Pale Rose

Next up, we'll look at Powder Pink.

Again, seen alone, this one might be mistaken for Clematis.  But as you can see from the picture above, it's actually pretty different.  Clematis has a bit of blue in the mix and a lot of this has been toned right down with the new Powder Pink.  It's also more muted and subtle than the brighter pinks. As you can see when it's next to the pale but very bright Candy Floss.

I like this new shade a lot.  Clematis was always too close the purples to fit well with the pinks that I wanted to use and so this version suits me much better.  I've been wanting a shade which sits between the Pale Rose and the Soft Peach for a while and this does the job so very nicely.

L-R: Soft Peach, Powder Pink, Pale Rose


Top L-R: Storm Blue, Cornish Blue, Denim.  Bottom L-R: Aster, Petrol

The next colour to look at is Cornish Blue.

This is a lovely blue colour but for me, it doesn't seem to do so much in the way of adding choices in the range and broadening the options for palettes.  I thought that this was Storm Blue when I saw it, others thought it was Denim.  It is actually slightly different to both of those but you can only really tell when they are next to each other and in good light.

There are a lot of Special DK blues, and this mid-blue range is getting very busy with slightly different mid hues, Bluebell, Aster, Lapis, Lobelia and now Cornish Blue as well.  Beautiful colours in their own right, and can combine in some lovely combinations, but they don't fit tonally so well with many of the other blues.

When I'm making a colour selection, I really appreciate the chance to include hues which that have paler tints or darker tones to create harmony.  Cornish blue looks quite nice with Petrol, but Storm Blue already did that nicely.  I'd much rather have seen the start of something like a french grey/blue selection of shades.  Or even a more subtle navy or a darker denim perhaps.

But on the other hand, it's a pretty colour!



Top L-R: Lincoln, Spearmint, Sage.  Bottom L-R: Duck Egg, Aspen.

Last but not least, let's talk about Spearmint.

This one is my favourite and it's a shade I've been craving, wanting, needing to see in the range since... I don't know, since I found it existed?  I've said before that I really struggle to find greens that I would want to use in Stylecraft yarn, and not just in the Special range.  It's felt like an awfully long wait for some more useable (for me) greens, to start to come though, so it's fab to see more choice with shades like this gorgeous one.

I would describe the Spearmint as a beautiful pale Sage, or maybe a more muted Aspen.  This is the shade I was hoping to see when they launched the Duck Egg back in 2015.  That's a lovely shade too, but I wanted something just a little more saturated and so this really hits the spot for me. 

It sits perfectly with both the paler Duck Egg and the darker Sage and would have been absolutely blooming perfect for my original Painted Roses blanket, all those years ago!  At the time I had to source both my leafy green and the duck egg colour from an alternative brand.  Now, I could make it all from Special DK.

Still, I'm sure this is one that I'll be using plenty of in the future!



Of course, you know me, I tend to have lots to say when it comes to colour and this is most definitely an 'opinion piece' on the subject.  

Hopefully though I've also shown enough for you to get a feel of the new colours for yourself, so question really is - What do you think of them?

The stranded socks live on!

You might recall that last time I was talking about these socks, things were all looking a bit rocky and I'd largely fallen out of love with this spur of the moment project.

Well, thanks to you lovely lot and the helpful advice that you were able to dispense, all was not lost and I have now finally managed to successfully wrangle these socks to completion!


I'll give you another close up of the hearts, so you can see how really quite respectable they look now.  I blocked them of course, to get them looking as good as I possibly could...




So, how did this astounding turn around take place?  
Well, two things in particular really helped me out...

First of all, I stopped using two hands and went back to using just one.
I suddenly remembered that I used to do my stranded knitting with just one hand, picking up and putting down each colour as required.   More recently though I'd started using both hands, the main/background colour in my right hand, and the contrasting colour in my left.

In theory this is a cracking little method.  You don't have to put the yarns down and pick them up all the time and it's easier to make sure that you keep the main and contrast colours in the right place.  (If you don't know what that's all about, have yourself a little Google of 'yarn dominance'.)

But the trouble is, I'm not a great continental knitter, so I think using my left hand was messing with the tension quite a lot.

The second tip that really helped me was knitting the socks inside out.  
Not as complicated as it sounds, it just means flipping the cuff on the needles so that the right side of the work is on the inside of the tube of knitting.  This means that the floated strands of yarn need to stretch right around the outside and are less likely to pulled taught across the middle on the inside. 

As I much prefer using magic loop on circular needles and this solution seemed to hit the spot perfectly and meant I could ditch the dpns!



I did get some other great tips though that I thought you might like to know about:

Practise!
Partly because it does make perfect after all... but mostly because it just takes a little time and experience to get a feel for how tight or loose the floats should be.  I was probably expecting too much for someone who doesn't do very much stranded knitting.

Go up a needle size
Stranded knitting by it's nature tends to be less stretchy, so going up a needle size can help retain the same overall sock size, to help it fit over the foot.

Increase the stitch count
Again, to counteract the less stretch in the stranded knitting, you could increase the stitch count for that section.  I added one more heart repeat to my socks for example.

Knitting on the round with a short 9" sock needle (like this one*). 
So you never have to worry about the point where the needles meet and the strands of yarn pulling tight in that area.

Using a special type of 'sock-wonder' needle (like this one*).
This is a short needle again, but with one longer needle and one tiny short needle.  So that you can spread the stitches on the longer needle to make sure the floats aren't too tight.

Using a Knitting/Norweigen Thimble*
A fab little gadget which fits on your finger and holds two yarns for you so you can use either strand very easily.  I believe this is normally used by continental style knitters.

Blocking
This will improve and even out any stranded knitting and help the stitches look more tidy and even.

: :

A big thank you so much to everyone who left me helpful comments and some of these lovely tips.

Hopefully you might find those helpful if you are ever facing the same stranded sock knitting woes!

Hooray, hooray, it's a Ziggy* pattern release day!

Yes, I'm glad to say that all everything is now ready to go and the Getting Ziggy Squared² Blanket pattern is here and available for you.

If you have been watching the podcast for a bit, this blanket may well look familiar to you, I chatted about it when in the process or making it (Ep 49) and when it was done too (Ep 50).

I don't think I've really spoken about it much here on the blog though, so let's have a quick re-cap...


: :

*That's the crocheted type of Ziggy, not the Stardust version of course...
 although, personally,  I'm a fan of both.

: :



This blanket idea came about because of a shawl that I designed quite a few years ago now, called the Getting Ziggy Shawl.  The twist being that the shawl is made sideways on with the zig zagging happening on an angle.  The geometry of the shape really appealed as did the challenge of figuring out how to make it happen in crochet.

Since then I've pondered the idea of a 'squared' off, blankety version.  There are plenty of zig zag blankets about, but I really liked the idea of keeping the zigging on an angle, but still fitting it into a nice neat rectangle shape.  The idea of 'taming' the ziggy zaggy shape really appealed to me.

You know how it is with ideas though, having them is one battle, getting the thing into reality is another struggle entirely.  But luckily for me, I have a demanding niece with a love of unicorns!  I wouldn't blame you if you didn't immediately see how that helped me with making a blanket, but the link, albeit tenuous, is there.  Let me explain...

She was having her bedroom decorated.  Because, when small girls grow big and move out of their toddler bed, they need to throw off the shackles of baby-hood and assert their new identities.  My niece, like many, is obsessed with unicorns.  Unicorns were to be the theme of the new bedroom, she wanted a unicorn toy (which I duly made) and a 'unicorn' blanket.  Whatever that might be.




After thinking for a while about what might pass for a 'unicorn' blanket, I suddenly remembered some beautiful colours of Caron yarn that I got on a trip to America and also, the fact that I'd had the good sense (as it turned out) to pick up some sparkly yarn at the same time.  I don't think a unicorn blanket would be fit to be called the name with out some sparkle, do you?

It seemed to me I could please my niece and scratch my design itch at the same time.  The idea wasn't shouting UNICORN in an obvious way though and I had to get it cleared. I showed my niece the colours, explained the idea, and waited to see if it passed muster.  She agreed and was most pleased with the notion and with the nod from Mum too, I had got the green light!

So the 'Essence of Unicorn' blanket was made and gifted last year.  I have one very happy niece and now, some time later, a pattern to share with you...

Cherry Heart by Sandra (cherry Heart) - 2w ago

Ahh, stranded knitting, ours is such a love/hate relationship.

I love the look of stranded and fair-isle knitting.  I've seen so many beautiful designs, so many gorgeous pieces of work, so many lovely garments being made at the moment.

But

I hate, hate, hate doing it!

Ok, that's a lotta hate right there.  Sometimes, most of the time in fact, I'd probably wouldn't say I hate it.  More that I don't seem to get on with it, but you caught me on a bad day.  Today, I'm suffering with an acute case of knitters disappointment and so today feelings are running high.  Or rather, low.


So, let me tell you a little more of this woeful tale...

These are double knit socks.  I came across the pattern while looking for something else and after my last pair of dk socks came out so beautifully, I was looking to make more.  I remembered I had these rather niffy colours of dk yarn in stash so I was all set to make some lovely, happy heart socks. (Pattern: Sole Mate Heart Socks by Elly Fales)

My first attempt went ok-ish, but when it came to that all import test for socks, 'can I fit this thing on my foot', the sock was sadly lacking.  Well, a bit of a problem but no matter, stranded knitting by it's nature is tighter and I do have quite a high in-step.   

All par for the course I thought, I'll just increase the stitch count and go again.  I also ordered some dpn's to use.  On the first attempt I'd stuck with my favourite circular needles and magic loop, but I did have some extra pulling at the edges and I thought that the dpn's would sort that out nicely.

So, take two began.

Things started well, I completed the first row of hearts, although I began with the navy instead of my intended darker pink.  Oh well, not worth ripping back for....  Do the socks fit?  Yes.  Hoorah!  Then let us forge on...

Then I started the second row of hearts.  Things were a little dicer this time.  Things got a bit tight and puckered, I tinked back a few rows here and there, re-doing things looser.  Getting a little fed up of fixing but still hanging in there.  One set of hearts to go!

So, I guess I was over compensating for my previous tightness because at the end of the third set of hearts all I had to show was a mangled heap of baggy stitches, which at the same time still also manage to have horribly tight patches too.  Arrrrrgggghhhhhhh!

They looked a big, hot, mess!

Frustrated, disappointed and with hands hurting from attempting to wrangle the endlessly awkward dpn needles, I discarded the whole sorry pile in a fit of petulant pique! 

And there it stayed, the whole weekend.

I suppose you'd better see the thing, and up close so you can really get into the horror of it all.  But before you do, I need you to know how much worse this is in reality than you can see here in these photos.  Somehow it is hard to expose the true hideousness of what I see here in real life in a picture.  Believe me, I tried.  

Just take it from me, they are worse than they look.  So. Much. Worse! 



So now what do I do with them?

Normally I would wait til I had calmed down and rip back and try again like a good little maker, but I don't think I'm quite 'over it' enough for that yet.  Also it seemed to hurt my hands quite a bit.  I don't know how or why, or what I did so wrong, but I don't really fancy repeating the experience.

BUT

The trouble is, I am stubborn too.  And that stubborn, petulant, child-like side of me is feeling a little bit like it has a point to prove.  I mean I used to be able to knit colour work patterns ok.  Not brilliant, but ok.

I've knit a Christmas stocking with colour work patterns and a whole pair of fair-isle style leg warmers too and they were ok.  Well, they were merely ok at the time, now they feel like shining examples of excellence compared to what I seem capable of now.

How did I manage to get so much worse at it I wonder?
I can understand that because I don't do it often I wouldn't improve, but to get so much worse?  I don't get it!

Ahh well, I shall have to rely on the great healer that is time.  No doubt a few weeks to let the emotions (clearly strong ones if this post is any judge!) and disappointment fade and then we'll see what is to be done.

 In the meantime, let's focus on some much more enjoyable and soothing projects I have on the go...  That's certainly what I'll be doing!
