All through the morning, I kept thinking about the So Faded project. I tried it on again and a couple of things made me re-think my plans. This is the picture from this morning:
First, The other fade project I’m making is a cardigan. Do I need two faded cardigans? I’m thinking I’d have to wear a solid top under the cardigans because with the fade project, a print of any kind would be too much.
Second, I’m not thrilled with the purple. The other four yarns are multi colored yarns so the solid at the bottom kinda looks like it doesn’t go.
Third, if I want to keep this as a pullover and not a cardigan, I want it to be longer.
Therefore, I ripped back to the next to last yarn, did another inch in that color, then went stash diving to find an alternative to the purple.
The back color is fourth color, that I’m currently using. The front color is what I’m going to use in place of the solid purple. It’s Dream in Color Smooshy and the color is Mermaid Shoes.
I’m going to go ahead and work through the bottom ribbing and then decide if I want to make this a cardigan or leave it as a pullover.
