Hi knitters! I designed the Little Bubbles Set as one of my first projects here at Knit Picks, and I am so excited that you're finally able to see it! Let's use this thread as a place to share our projects, get information, ask questions, and share our finished knits!
I'll start by showing you a little movie of , ahem, me, discussing the design process.
Well, the kit colors for the neutral set were Ivory, Cashew, Honeydew, Seafoam, and Creme Brulee, but "girl" and "boy" colors are pretty subjective. My personal feeling is that all all colors are fair game, especially for babies. I could see a really vibrant, high contrast set knit up in Planetarium, Pomegranate, Silver Sage, Ivory and Flamingo, for instance. Or a springtime one in Marlin, Lilac Mist, Honeydew, Sea foam, and Jalapeno? Your imagination is the limit! I'd love to hear other's ideas for new colorways too!
Because I liked the colors available with the Shine Sport as well, and since it has the same weight and washing instructions and is also really soft like the Comfy Sport, I did a sweater with Hollyberry, Caution, Silver Sage, Seafoam, and Orchid. It turned out like a funky fall rainbow of sorts! I needed 2 skeins of the BC, however, since there's less yardage in the Shine Sport. Thanks again to Nina for making us all look like pros :)
Thanks, Susan! I know exactly what you mean about red looking good with light blue - as I was knitting the last few stripes and then the hollyberry at the bottom, I realized that the combo of hollyberry, seafoam, and silver sage would look really great for a boy!
Once the Harbor color is available in the Shine Sport, I'm doing one for a boy due at the end of December in Harbor, Leapfrog, Caution, Silver Sage and Seafoam. The Leapfrog is so much nicer in person than what it looks like online - I'm so glad I ordered the color swatches for both of these yarns!
