Pondering Project Spectrum 4 and the first cardinal direction of North – colour, green… my stash investigations revealed this Trekking Hand Art in the colourway “Tundra.”
It is certainly green (and brown of course.) Tundra has distinctly Northern connotations for me so I think I am minded to whip something up with it, but I want to do something distinctly not-socky.
I like to use these creative impetus things to drive me into a personal challenge.
So, where does that leave us?
Well, I am thinking beads. LOADS of beeds, not just a tasteful few, hooked here and there, but a Great Big Threading Job.
What do you think?
It requires 100gms of size 6 seed beads and I was going to ask the blog about sources, but I did stumble across http://www.totallybeads.co.uk earlier this evening, so now I think the question must be… “but what colour of beads????” I am considering the Bronze ones as I think the green are tooÂ bright and the brown a little dull.
Really though, it’s such a nice design that I feel it deserves a better quality of yarn – something sumptuous. On the other hand, the weight of the beads will give the thing its drape, and the nylon content in the sock yarn will help it stand up to the wear and tear of pulling all those beads about.
What do you think? Please tell… I am undecided.
Other Green/North yarn options from the stash:
Other possibilities exist. I just can’t lay my hands on the photographs right now.
