moda noir shawl
I like the colours but probably won't buy more of this yarn, not even for socks. Down on bottom left, two of the several patches of undyed yarn can be seen. I suppose I could try and match the colour with a texta or similar but I'm not going to even bother. This will be used as a scarf or light shoulder throw at home in cool weather. I'm counting the imperfections as part of the whole deal, meal deal so to speak. It was done for a specific time and purpose as some relaxation and meditation during an unpleasant period of time when I couldn't concentrate on anything more complex. I am planning on looking at progress made when I look at this and see how far I've come.
In the early stages, the colours lasted more than one row. As the rows grew longer, the colours changed quite frequently, sometimes even within a row. When I spread the shawl on the table this morning, I had a surprise. I suppose it's a form of pooling, but the shawl is split down the centre spine into a light and a dark side.
