See It Knit – Whale’s Road

When I was in high school we had an english teacher that challenged us to come up with ‘Kennings’, a type of language that illustrates the idea of a word in words that are related but not exact. A good example — whales road — for the ocean. I always think of that ‘Kennings’, the idea that whales travel along the road that is the ocean, migrating forever on the loneliest and yet most populated road of the world. I got excited when the idea to do this as a See it Knit came up on the Facebook page – I love this colorway but I haven’t been able to find just the right thing to make with it yet. Maybe you’re like me and you just like to pull the carefully hand-painted skein out of your stash and gaze at it lovingly, or you just don’t know how to correctly position all the colors of the variegated blues, purples, and turquoise. I feel a little more confident after seeing some of these projects, don’t you?

    I have always loved Whales Road in the skein but have been sort of afraid to knit it up. These projects look great, so I guess I should overcome my fear! I love these blog posts, too!

    I have never even heard of that colorway before. It is absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could get my hands on some.

    Hi! I just found your blogsite by accident through Ravelry. Wow! I love, love, love the praying mantis photo and yarn selections and then I found the blue door photo. Wow! Those were two great ideas. I just finished a pair of Malabrigo socks for my daughter-in-law, and after wash and block, they are the softest and best-feeling socks I have ever made. I love this yarn! Thank you for such a good product. I will now be watching for more color ideas. Thanks so much.
