Blending

I’ve been knitting obsessively on my February Lady Sweater and I’ve got the progress to show for it.

Loving these subtle stripes

Loving these subtle stripes

It’s my first time working with a gradient yarn like Chroma on such a large project.  Sure, I’ve made self-striping socks and even a gradient cowl, but those were all one-skein projects. Getting the colours to blend just right when joining balls of gradient yarn is quite the headache (the fact that this is a subtle monochrome doesn’t help matters). I think I have it figured out now, but not before making some mistakes – if you look closely at the third buttonhole you’ll see that the stripes actually change direction where I joined the second ball; I’ll call it a design feature rather than ripping back.
