Alecia Beth

Have you seen the new pattern highlights feature on the pattern page on Ravelry?

It has been very bad for my formally well-organized queuing habits.

Very rarely do I see a project I must cast-on the second I see it. Normally I favorite it, and if I keep coming back to my favorites to look at it, I queue it. If I really like it, I queue it right away. When Alecia Beth by Justyna Lorkowska popped up on my highlights page, I bought it immediately, printed it out at work, saved it on my tablet, and cast it on the second I got home.

In this yarn.

If you notice, everyone else has knit their projects out of solid yarns, or semi-solid at the very most. Me? I go for the brightest food color tie dye I have done yet. I call it “Fruity Pebbles”.

I quite like the effect so far.
AB Cardigan Yoke Fruity Pebbles
I am 3/4 of the way done with the yoke. I am loving the contiguous sleeve construction.

Those mock cables get me every time. I just can’t say no to them.
