Pruple







...that's what my fingers type nearly every time I write purple (and the temptation to put that in quotation marks was almost irresistible).



Anyway, I'm finished with the sleeves! All I have left is about 9" of body (and the steeking, and the sewing, and the neckline shaping, and the front and neck band knitting, and worst of all- working out the buttonhole spacing. Oh yeah, and I don't have buttons or even a clue about what kind of buttons I want to use). I would like to have arranged the color progression from reds to purples to blues to greens (which doubles back to the yellows), but many of the remaining colors wouldn't look right with the darker background, which is running out very quickly. But the color progression is the color progression, and it's coming along. I'm using up most of what's left of the darker gray, and I'll segue into the lighter (which is shown in the picture) whenever the dark runs out, or the colors don't contrast well enough, whichever happens soonest.


Rainbow Harvest?

Have you noticed you're moving from earth colours to sky colours? It's kind of a horizon effect. Harvest Horizon? Anyway - gorgeous! Also, I officially need to learn everything there is to know about steeking. I would so much rather knit two fronts of a cardi at once.

I am totally loving this sweater and the recipient is one lucky gal. How about Chromaticity? The chromatic scale is a half step progression in musical tones and since this is a progression of colors???????

Kathleen Taylor said...

This time, the recipient is me- as long as the sweater fits. I think it will.

The praples (as we called it in our family) are lovely. And did you notice the green fits right in now. I'm seeing a kind of sunset effect here...

Sheesh, how do you find the time to knit so fast, among other things? No wonder you author knitting books!

I'm so totally enamored with this kind of knitting... first I need to figure out steeks. Know of any baby or doll sweater patterns?
