day three: week of red (and wip wednesday)

More from my garden! Serendipitously, it is my red asiatic lilies that are blooming first--perfect timing for Project Spectrum!

And moving to the darker side of red for my WIP Wednesday ... this is my Making Waves Cardigan (Rav link) in Madelinetosh Sock in Oxblood. There's a lot of black in this colorway. In some light it looks reddish, in other light a little purple. It's progressing quickly despite being sock yarn!

  1. Oh my gosh, that madelinetosh is gorgeous! Sort of a strange name for something so pretty, though. The cardigan looks great, too :D

  3. Thanks! This color is a close match to the maroon that is our university's school colors (Mississippi State), so this sweater is intended for basketball games and such (no need for sweaters during football season here!).
