I hate to even say it because I know I’m sounding like a broken record but I have never had so much trouble with choosing colors. Last year, I did a faded shawl.
And, I made a pair of faded socks!
For both of those, I just pulled yarns out of my scrap bag . . all leftover fingering weight. I guess, if I was smart, which obviously I am not . . I would have gone back to those projects, looked to see which yarns I used, and ordered more of those.
Every day I end up ordering another skein or two of yarn trying to come up with a good fade. I’m almost to the point of saying . . I know it isn’t going to be pretty but done is better than perfect!
I look at all the yarn I’ve pulled and ordered for this project and I could probably put together a dozen fade projects but I don’t seem to be able to pull this one off.
I think the pattern calls for four yarns but a couple of them, I need a bit more than one skein. Since I keep ordering yarn that doesn’t actually work, I’ve gone to ordering one skein so I may end up using six different yarns.
I just need to stop thinking about this, knit it and get it done. I think the yarns shown above may be my final choice except the far right one may end up being lighter than I want for the end. Here they are in grayscale.
I haven’t searched the stash for something that will work with that next to last color but hopefully I can find the perfect finale for this project.
