From left to right: Philosopher’s Stone, Queen Rock, Rolling Stone, Lapis and a Rare Gem. A Rare Gem is a skein that doesn’t quite turn into what was expected so it is changed into something wonderful. No other skein will ever be like this one. I already started knitting it up in a Jaywalker pattern. I love that pattern for two reasons: it fits so well, better than any other pattern I tried(and ripped out because it didn’t fit well) and the second reason is that I have committed the pattern to memory. I don’t have to fuss with and pattern notes while knitting this.
This picture is close to what the colors look like when it was wrapped up like this but once I started to wind it into a center pull ball I was able to see the beautiful colors that were hidden inside. This Rare Gem is a beautiful mix of greens, blues, purples, reds, browns and a little bit of peach here and there. I couldn’t wait to start, I’m almost ready to turn the heel.
This is a picture of my sweetie wearing the sweater I knitted him for Christmas(which is also his birthday). I finished sewing in the zipper at 2 am on Christmas morning. I cannot remember off hand the specs of sweater. I’ll look later and add them. Isn’t he cute? The sweater is a little short and a little too big around his stomach but he loves it anyway.
