So Faded, So Not What I Thought

Have you ever started a crafty project and it takes a totally different direction than you initially imagined! When I got this Faded Kit from Tanis Fibre Arts. I was convinced on the colours I was going to use

I was NOT going to use the pinky, peach one. Well never say never because this happened… What a saga, lol! I’m not frustrated though. It’s more fascinating to me how it has turned out…Follow the progression…

I absolutely love this dark turquoise colour but for some reason I was not happy with the stripes as I faded. I think I could have tried a different fade approach by staggering the rows more e.g. 1 row of each then 2 or 3 to make the switch over more area. Perhaps it’s because spring is coming but I started to have more of a light colour scheme in my head and it was just too dark. I also didn’t like how uniform the turquoise was compared to the speckled nature of the first 2 colours. So…

Third time is a charm I think! I brought back the pink colour! What I liked about the other 2 colours was the light base. I love how it truly fades into one another now.

PERSONAL PREFERENCE! I love all 5 skeins of yarn but I’ve learned that I don’t love the stripey fade. Boy, I learned the long way around lol! I’m excited to whip to the finish now.

Oooooooo, in that last pic you also got a sneak peak at my next project. Look at that gorgeous SpinCycle Yarn! I’m doing this new gem from Drea Renee Knits
