This is what I am currently working on. The picture does not do it justice as the color here are very muted and in fact the colors I am using are vibrant like the color of jewels. Believe it or not I have another 280 rows to go but I think it will be worth it in the end. It is for a very special friend. This is a modification of a shawl that someone had posted on our site. I am using a heavier yarn instead of the yarn they suggested. Do you think I will complete this before Christmas (ha, ha) This is what I have completed in the past 10 days.
Here is a second view with more light I am not that happy with it because it distorts the colors, such as the brown is really black and the pinks are really purple but I guess you guys can get a general idea of what it looks like
Very nicely done! It’ll be a wonderful gift.
Thank you both Jan and salmonmac. This may sound crazy but besides being friends for the past 20+ years she does a lot of traveling and I am an avid coffee drinker so she brings me coffee from all over the world therefore I wanted to do something special for her
That’s so pretty. The colors as they appear on my screen make me think of coffee and yummy desserts. Maybe I should have breakfast? lol
Thanks the screen doesn’t do it justice. The color are bright like jewels in tones of puples, blues with streaks of black.
Love it. Your friend will cherish it.
Thank you so much if you guys like it i guess she will also
The colors make it really pretty. I like the different variety of colors you are using in this.
Thank you so much poetknitter
You’re welcome, trisha54.
That is really beautiful. I love the colors and the design.
Regarding the colors i took the ombre yarn and matched up the colors with solids so it would look like stained glass. That was the fun part of the project
