FO Orangina




I have blocked Orangina and am moving along with Ms. Marigold. I think that I will try Oragnina again with a black colored yarn, similar to Wendy Bernard's from Knit and Tonic. This marks my 3rd finished sweater in 2007. Only 9 more to go for the Dozen Sweater KAL. While this isn't my favorite peice (Wicked still wins), I think that I'm happy I tried something different with two varying colors and textures. A nice funky peice to spice up my wardrobe. Of course I imagine the black Orangina will be great!

Thanks so much! I appreciate you checking out my blog - I've looked at yours a bunch as well.

My comment didn't seem to go through (hopefully it won't be duplicated) - anyway, I really like your two-color Orangina - great idea! I'm sure the black version will look great too - and I look forward to seeing Ms. Marigold as I don't think I've seen any FOs of that pattern yet.

Two-toned is a great idea. I'm Chinese, so orange doesn't look so hot on me. I think I may borrow your idea for my version.

This is absolutely gorgeous, and what a great colour combo! I'm sure the version in black will look equally awesome - very beautiful work indeed!
