L'Oiseau Bleu: Knit Picks Stroll Stars in "The Bluebird of Happiness"

If you've followed this bloggy for a while now, you may have noticed the distinct lack of cerulean- or cobalt-coloured, teal- or turquoise-tinted, yarnny friends. (that is, until very recently!)
This is in part due to my stated, (waveringly) confident opinion that blue is not my colour.
But oh, how lovely it can be.
Irresistible, in fact.

Meet Exhibit A:
Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in Deep Waters.


The tone-on-tone action happening in this yarn dances beautifully.
Especially with my current design.

It's all about cables, sock yarn and a scoop-necked sweater that sits on my coffee table and begs me to come home soon soon SOON and knit more. This yarn makes me so happy!

As you can see, it's currently in the getting-started stage.
This is in part because I had a bit of a time wrestling with which cables to use, and of course, my mortal enemy, Mr. Mathematics.

In the end Mr. Math and I've signed a truce; he's claimed he'll work with me on this one.
But just this one.

Damn you Mr. Math!!

I can't wait to see what you've come up with. I know what you mean about math, my mortal enemy (well, not exactly mortal, but you know what I mean). Good luck with it! I love the color.

oooh, a new canarysanctuary design!! I already know I'm going to love it. And that blue looks amazing.

Ah, yes, that is an awfully pretty blue! I'm so glad Mr. Math has agreed to work with you on this one -- I can't wait to see how it turns out!
