And she knits some more!
Once again, the pattern is Optical Delusion: Conflagration
These are the colors in regular daylight. Note how the blue nearly disappears.
I used larger needles than the pattern calls for, so I couldn't do the required 11 repeats of Chart #3. But it's plenty long enough, especially after blocking. The blues, which were quite visible in the skein, ended up being pale and very subtle in the finished scarf. This pattern is far too fiddly to let subtle colors blur the stitch detail, so.... I got out my blue sharpie and I traced over the lightest blue stitches.
Also note: The pattern calls for wrapped turns, which will not leave those holes in the fabric. I did a different kind of turn (I just turned, and then slipped the first stitch), which resulted in the holes. I like them, and did not mind the effect.
