So, given year-end busyness, a box arrived from a yarn shop that I failed to open for a few weeks. Inside, gorgeous yarn. But. I ordered the yarn with a pattern in mind, and now I can't recall what i wanted to make with it. I've gone through my online files of knitting patterns, the recent knitting magazines in the house, and searched Ravelry.

The yarn is Berroco Lustra and I bought several skeins in one color of blue and one skein each in two different colors of blue.

If you recall a pattern you saw recently that uses three different colors of blue (and not necessarily of Lustra) please let me know!

That's OK...don't feel bad. Just send it to me and I'll think of something to do.

Sorry Shirley, but guess what? I went through my computer files again and found what I'm pretty sure is the Pattern! Chambord from Twist Collective!

Very nice, I liked Chambord when I first saw it. But, yes, hmmm, a pattern with three different colours of blue? Not quite seeing it there! In your mind's eye, maybe. :)

I think I bought two different skeins so I could decide which color would be the best accent (at least that's my story!).

I like that pattern too. I'm a purple-person and like it exactly the way it's shown--except that the specified yarn is expensive for me. I'd want to find a nice, close substitute.

Did you see the pic of the designer's finished sweater in blue?
