Change of plans?

So I got my yarn today. At least the premiere I ordered. I have 10 balls of Calmer (40 bucks for all ten on ebay!) on it's way in a tangerine color. Really pretty. So I know this isn't white, but she didn't have the 6 she said she did so I got this instead. 8 skeins. After touching this yarn I think I want to do cables with it. Something about this yarn says texture. So I'm working on another design. I am going to save the other two designs for the Calmer when it gets here, and work a new one in this yarn. The picture is close to true color, it's a bit more grey than it looks there though. My flash makes everything brighter.
I also made buttons, because I saw premiere didn't have one. I can make some for the other yarns as well if anyone wants one. I just don't have those yarns to use for the background. Or someone can send me a pic of the yarn and I can do that. Anyway, I just wanted something to put on my blog and show some love. One moving and one not.

Well, the buttons look great and I've added them to the sidebar. Thanks so much.
I'm really interested to see how the cables work up in premiere. It's really lovely yarn.

That color is beautiful (even if it is a bit more gray).

What a gorgeous color!! I've knit cables with Premiere before, and they look great. They don't have the same puffiness as cables knit in wool, so if that's what you're looking for you might be disappointed, but instead the cables lie flat and are smooth and drapey (while still having excellent stitch definition).

The color of your yarn is lovely and I'm looking forward to seeing your cables knit up. :)

Hattie, girl, you are my new favorite CALer. I've been dying for a button, but with my schedule of late it has just not been happening! I am uploading one of those puppies to my server now! You rock.

I am really like working with the Premiere. I think the new color is great!

Hattie said...

The buttons were no problem guys! ;)

I have a thing for buttons, I love making them.

I tried cables and I didn't like it so much as I thought, maybe if I used a smaller size needle, I was using an 8. I've been swatching all day though trying to get the yarn to inspire me and finding the right stitch.

I have a bid on the 4 balls of Calmer I need and will know if I won SATURDAY--LOVE THE BUTTONS
I know someimes it takes longer than others to get inspired..just think how good you will feel when you come up with a swatch you like..

I know I've found a stitch pattern that I like but the instructions are confusing so it's not coming out right, I think I'll just have to do it my way and see how it goes. I've got a couple tentative designs, maybe in a day or two I will know. I do love this yarn tho, so soft!

Thanks for the great buttons! I guess now I have to figure out how to upload it to my server.
