Note from Sundara...We are ending our week of Wednesday Addams with who is maybe my favorite character in the show, Enid. And not just because she is awesome and she crocheted Wednesday a snood, but because how much do we love all the sweaters she wore? So much. So much so that I absolutely had to knit myself one of these pink and yellow striped babies. Look at it! It's divine. We all need some of that gorgeousness in our life.

I spent way too much time deconstructing how this sweater was knit. I'm fairly sure it's four colors: light pink, dark pink, light yellow, and dark yellow. Between the dark and light strips, the dark and light colors are striped together to make a medium hue. Hopefully that makes sense. It's also fuzzy, so I dyed each of the four colors in both fingering merino and lace silk alpaca so they can be held together to increase the gauge and get the fuzziness.

I'm going to be using "Sweater No. 11" by My Favorite Things and just modify the collar. I'm also going to be using three strands held together: two of the lace silky alpaca and 1 fingering. I'm also going to knit this on US 10 needles and modify the gauge. Probably just knit the smallest size of the pattern. Hopefully that makes sense. Let me know if you want to do the same and have questions. I have no idea how much yarn you'll need. Maybe somewhere along the lines of 2-3 skeins of each color?

Or, if this sweater is too much, find something smaller. A hat. A cowl. Maybe get 1 skein of each color. Or maybe just the dark in yellow and pink or just the light and knit something with stripes. It's up to you. You can embrace your inner Enid anyway you wish!

"Enid" will not be dyed again. One batch of each color, which is now that I'm thinking about it, a worrisomely small amount, so maybe don't wait too long to purchase. Yarn will ship next week.
