finished my clincher! here, have a terrible picture of it.
my original plan for the contrast didn’t pan out, since there wasn’t enough contrast between the two yarns, so i had to stash dive for an alternative. came up with leftovers from a MKAL that recently ended!
i love this thing.

!!! that test base cashmere/silk blend. it’s so, so, so soft. and amazing. there are splotches where the dye didn’t take, and some spots where another color bled? i don’t dye, so i’m not exactly sure. i love those little spots, though.

officially long since reached the part of my clincher where i hate myself for picking such a monotonous pattern, but loving how it’s coming out. just have to increase 10 more stitches - except. there are four rows for every one stitch increased. so. 40 more rows until i get to the contrasting color part.
and fuck yeah. the colors pooled into the x men logo.

woo colorwork! finished it like last week(?) but just got around to taking a picture of it today. this is only about the fourth thing i’ve done in stranded knitting? i need to do more, especially with variegated yarns because it looks that much more impressive, hah. i love this hat, though.
