What will this pumpkin colored yarn be? That's a serious question. I've already tried knitting a cute little shawl, knowing that this amount of yarn would make a very substantial piece. Bad idea, and I should have taken a photo prior to frogging. Only a proper picture could illustrate my dilemma. It was late at night, so, what can I say?
This variegated yarn has a definite 'stripe' pattern. The color does not change gradually, and there's no way around it. I don't want a striped shawl, or a striped cardigan. When I bought it, I thought the color would be distributed more evenly. Hey, I love the orange color, really. Yams are right up there as one of my 5 favorite veggies. This isn't a slam against KnitPicks, in any way. I love their stuff! I have their needles, and I've used their yarns, honest.
I have to think about what to do. Any ideas would be most welcome.
