Beluga and….

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have become enamored with a variety of colors paired up with Spud & Chloë Sweater in the Beluga colorway. Every color in Sweater looks so beautiful when combined with this heather gray worsted yarn. I have finally landed on a gray and yellow color combination that I am really crazy about.

In fact, I have two wound cakes that are sitting stacked on each other in the Beluga #7521 and the Firefly #7505 colorways. I keep looking at them and wondering what to make. Should the hanks become a hat, mitts, a scarf, a shawl, a cardigan, a cowl? Maybe all of the above?

The next free pattern on the blog will be something in grellow!

It is so good. I am casting on today….

What Spud & Chloë creations are you making right now? I’d love to hear about your projects and your color combination loves of the moment.

    I recently knitted Elefante in JellyBean and Penguin for the IB Swap. Turned out cute. I like the yellow and gray. Can’t wait to see what they become.

    Love love love this yarn … it gives great stitch definition. I recently finished a patchwork blanket in just about every colour of sweater!

    I’m starting another one of these for a friend in a couple of weeks and I’m thinking of recommending Grellow … these colours are amazing together!

    I love S&C Sweater! But my more recent favorite has to be S&C Fine! I had two skeins each of Anemone and Calypso, and I absolutely love my two projects that came out with combining these two colors.

    First has to be the Little Baby Sweater I knit for our new baby due next Jan. It’s so adorable! And thanks to the lighter weight yarn, I think it can well last into Spring (I knit it a little larger than original size in the pattern). Here’s my ravelry project page: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/catmilc/little-baby-sweater

    And this Ruffled Neck Kerchief from “Boutique Knits” is very chic. I used S&C Fine and it turned out great! Ravelry project pager: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/catmilc/ruffled-neck-kerchief

    I love S&C Fine. I wish there’re more sweater projects with this yarn.

    I LOVE the grellow combo. It’s seems to be the fun new color combo in the scrapbook world. My skin tone does not work well with yellow, but a shawl would be lovely.

    Beluga/Pollen is my new favorite combo. But, I just finished a Go Team hat in ice cream and Lake with some Beluga trim. Oh, and Barn Cat is almost complete and is paired with a Go Team hat in Pollen/Firefly with Watermellon trim for a sweet 6 year olds birthday present. Love Susan’s patterns, love Spud and Chloe!

    I’m a recent convert to Spud & Chloe sweater. I *love* it. After two sets of fingerless mitts, I’m knitting a ribbed hat in Moonlight, Ice Cream, and . . . help! Not sure what other colour to use! Grass? Firefly? Cider?

    Please share your ideas. I’ve been looking at Moonlight so long I no longer know what to match it with.
