Today I am finally going to share my finished True Colors with you. I took these photos last week and I have to admit I was rather disappointed when I finally got around to processing them yesterday. I almost put this post off again so that I could take better shots but at this point I’m going with “done is better than perfect” and sharing them even if they aren’t up to my usual standards.
In all honesty, this is a tricky piece to photograph. It’s very long and it starts out really narrow (that pink bit toward the bottom right) and then it increases to the wide natural stripes at the end.
And oh man do I love those stripes! The yarn is from Woolen Rabbit, the mini skeins were in a kit I picked up at a Fiber Revival a few years back, I think, and the natural is just Kim’s undyed base – but I can’t remember what base this is. #badknitter
I had to modify the pattern some since it calls for 10 different colors plus the natural. I had 5 colors in this kit so I just rotated my way through them. And I didn’t have quite enough to make this as big as the pattern calls for but, honestly, it’s huge and I wouldn’t want it to be any bigger than it is.
I love the way the colors reverse as the scarf (shawl? I can’t decide) reaches it widest point. And yes, that was a crap ton of ends to weave in. It was a labor of love, though, and I really am thrilled with the way it came out.
And now that I’ve blogged it – I get to wear it!
