New store sample: Match & Move

match_move_5

For meditative projects that are reliably satisfying and highly wearable, I’m a huge fan of Martina Behm’s designs. Match and Move is her latest and I immediately queued it as a good project to use up partial skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light I had leftover from several different projects. To really ensure it was a relaxing process in every way, I even saved myself the agony of decision-making about colour order by letting my 10-year-old son select the next colour whenever I finished one. This worked out so well, I might do it more often! I did run out of the Onyx (black) colourway on the very last repeat but just finished up the last 6 rows with Charcoal (grey) – no biggie, I think it looks great or, at least, not terrible. I’m not sure how much of each colour I used in the end but now that I’ve done this pattern once, I wouldn’t worry about having enough for each section if I were to do another one – I’d just put together a palette of yarns I liked and change colours as they ran out.
