I put all Wollmeise aside and chose my Little Traveller in the colorway Weeping Isle. Weeping Isle is an electric green with flecks of lime, yellows, orange and rust in it. It sounds yucky but you would have to see it to understand what I'm trying to describe.
When I opened the package and saw it for the first time my mouth dropped opened. I loved it, didn't like it and was intimidated by it. This colorway sparked quite a few emotions in me.I thought about sending it back and/or giving it away. Sometimes the more complicated a colorway, the harder it is to choose a pattern.
As you can see, this photo was taken with my cell phone.
I thought about another Multnomah or Swallow Tail even though I wasn't feeling a fever for those shawls with this yarn. A lightbulb came on just last night. I had over looked Hitchhiker. Well, so far I'm liking what I see.
The question on my mind is; How many teeth will my Hitchhiker have ? You see according to Martine, one skein of Wollmeise Superwash (575 yards/150 grams) creates 42 teeth in the Hitchhiker. My Little Traveller is only 560 yards. Perhaps with my tight gauge I can eek out the 42 teeth. I will have to check non-Wollmeise Hitchhiker projects to see how others faired, how many teeth did they end up with. I'm sure different variables apply.Will I be able to get 42 teeth ? We shall see...
