Years ago I attended a seminar with Jinny Beyer. I always loved how she used color. Some of the very first quilts I remember seeing at the Houston Quilt Festival in the late 70’s or early 80’s. I remember from one of Jinny’s lectures how she said you could take any two colors of fabric, completely different colors, and place other colors between them and make those colors work together. She gave example after example and had many swatches for us to use to experiment with. I couldn’t wait to leave there and go home and play with my fabrics. That’s kinda how I feel with this fade project. It’s so fun to see the yarns work together.
I wish that first fade (after the toe) had been better because the other two have been amazing . . if I do say so myself! You’re seeing four different yarn colors.
Tomorrow I’ll knit a few more rows with color #4, then I’ll add in #5 and, depending on how much knitting time I get tomorrow, I could finish these. Cannot wait to get them done!
