So San Francisco is one of the few places other than Cleveland that I’ve been fortunate enough to actually live. We didn’t live there for very long but it was a great experience. We got to drive across the country both ways, visit many beautiful national parks, and perhaps most importantly eat ridiculous amounts of excellent sushi.
Matt and my dad standing outside of the best/cheapest sushi restaurant in town. My parents came out to visit us and we basically took them on a culinary tour of the city. It was so much fun. Also? I forgot how different Matt looked with the shaggy hair!
So there’s many different ways I could have gone with this colorway… but I decided on taking the iconic image approach. And the most iconic image of San Francisco for me is the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog:
I lived there long enough to know to always bring a jacket because when that fog rolls in, man does it get cold.
Pretty, but cold.
Anyways for the yarn I wanted to create the strong orange of the bridge against the grays of the fog. The result was this:
Which will stripe in pairs, just like bridge:
I really like it. It seems like a very guy friendly yarn and yet stripes are fun to knit with!
It’s now available at Destination Yarn.
Edited to add:
Wow! You guys cleaned me out of the first 2 skeins super-quick!!! Thanks! I have 2 more dyed and ready to go but I haven’t finished winding them up yet. I’ll finish it tonight and list them tomorrow or Friday at the latest. Thanks!
Also – there will be an update with a whole bunch more Copenhagen soon…
