I’m so glad I started over. It was a tough decision to rip out an almost finished shawl, but I’m glad I did it.
The softer contrast of the gray Soft Kitty instead of the green Serenity really speaks my language. (Others are using the green, and it works for them. Color is so personal!)
I love these iridescent Black Copper-Lined Diamond AB beads against the brown end of this gradient yarn.
As the brown shades into gray, I transitioned to the green beads…
until it was green beads on green.
And then switched to Terra Dove Gray Pearl beads as the green becomes more intense. I think the gray beads tone down the green nicely.
I’m working on repeat 9, and could do 10 or even more before getting to the edging. We’ll see how those greens turn out. If they’re too intense for my preferred muted palette, I’ll stop early.
Wish us luck!
