So now that you've seen where the idea for Wisteria came from, and the yarn I've set off with for my own, I thought I'd show you some of the other versions currently under way on the Web.
My friend Kelly is a dedicated color girl, and never fails to chose vibrant yarns for her knitting. Her Wisteria is no exception as she quickly gravitated to one of her favorite yarns, Dream in Color Classy, in Flamingo Pie. In the skein, the yarn didn't immediately say "Wisteria" to me, but in the knitting, the subtle shadings of the Dream in Color dye technique make for a delicious fabric.
From pink to green: Mari's version makes me want to knit another one, in a cheery apple green well within my personal favorite color range. She's using Garnstudio Alpaca from her stash. Since it's a sport weight yarn, she using it doubled to get an appropriate gauge. I love that.
And even though Holly's version isn't very far along yet, I have to show you the color she chose: a sweet shade that Malabrigio Merino Worsted calls Orchid. Where my Wisteria will be in the silver a bit rugged, I think Holly's will be very ladylike and perfectly at home with either jeans or a floral skirt.
I for one would love to see this sweater in both in a smooth black extra fine merino, and in a slightly fuzzy yarn, with maybe a touch of angora or kid mohair, in white. A nice oversized one in white. Mmmm. yeah.
We have a group over on Flickr now, so you can upload project photos over there, and of course, there's the group on Ravelry too also you can keep track of progress on any patterns you are thinking of casting on for.
