pattern: OppAtt by Jeannie Cartmel
yarn: Manos del Uruguay Alegria, in colour Locura Fluo, 70g
"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.
