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