Unicorn's Hangover


pattern: OppAtt by Jeannie Cartmel
yarn: Manos del Uruguay Alegria, in colour Locura Fluo, 70g
needles: 2.25mm

"The dire circumstances require desperate measures" I said to my concerned partner, when I brought a skein of Alegria home. He was sincerely worried about me, because he knows I hate rainbow vomits from the bottom of my pitch dark heart. I can't explain this, but then again don't regret either, even though they are a bit too, well, bright for me.

hillanen knit a gorgeous version of this pattern, so I gave it a try too. Suppose it works with only moderately striped yarn though, because the cables don't pop up that much with this yarn.

The pics taken in the library of Humanities in Tampere uni; while others were writing their theses, I was cackling away between shelves with my unicorn's sick socks. Ah, procrastination.

No huh, en olisi susta uskonut. :D Mulla odottelee laatikossa lanka, joka näyttää siltä, kuin pelle olisi oksentanut yksisarvisen, joka paskoo sateenkaaria... Koska kehräämiseen ne värit houkuttelivat, toisin kuin neulomiseen. :D

Yleensä tällaiset riemunkirjavuudet on mustakin karseita, mutta näissä on sitä jotain. Myönnän tykkääväni, kovasti! :)
