Notes on Project
This was such a surprise at how my dyework turned out. I tentatively planned on this being a gradient, but then didn’t like the look of the colors in a smooth transition. They seemed much more compatible in a variegated style. Oddly enough, and maybe this was my subconscious at work, the shawl does gradate from oranges, rusts, browns to a more dominant green. I really love how it turned out. Just wish my photos captured its sheen better. The silk really sets off this pattern.
