Pattern: Pretty Gallopavo (download now)
Yarn: madelintosh Vintage
Needles: 5mm circs and dpns
As the title implies, I've been hankering for a huge pom-pomed-knit for quite some time now.
Years ago I bought a Giant Pom Pom maker, and have at long last put it to good use. (believe it or not, this is only the second largest size said pom pom maker can produce. It even goes up to 5"!)
The idea for this knit came (mostly) from the lovely yarn. And the title? While gallopavos aren't particularly pretty, they certainly have wonderful plumage!
The madelinetosh Vintage is beautiful for this knit, for all the reasons you would expect tosh to be beautiful. But, I found, upon snipping all those ends for the pom pom, the yarn does this other real cool thing: the inner core is a lighter green than the outer, and seems to almost glow.
I tried to get a good pic of the prettiness... and have failed :(
Enjoy, for those last few cool days we have. The hour's changed, Spring is coming, and I have many more patterns brewing!
