So, here's the thing. Well, let me show you...
You see where I am going? Well, me neither.
I knew it would not be brown...it is deeper than my monitor is showing...but it is this weird fleshy tone. AND the yarn I thought might soften up...but no...it is the scratchiest yarn ever. EVER.
So I knit a swatch and soaked it in conditioner...awaiting the results.
An afghan. The colour could possibly work because it is almost "stonehouse" which is on my livingroom walls...and in my sisters kitchen that adjoins her livingroom which is "herbes de provence." So, it would be a nice colour to go on her leather sofa....well maybe a leather chair...well, whatever leather piece she buys. (get rid of those puffy sofas!)
I love Girasole and will be knitting this for sure...so that is a possibility.
Hope the conditioner softens it enough that it could be an "outwear" sweater - nothing against the skin. Now that being said, I will need to overdye it another colour. Black - grey, purple, green? Suggestions?
