Variegated yarn doesn’t always look like I think it will once it’s worked. Witness these two dishcloths:
The first yarn, I loved as soon as I saw it. I was imagining the knitted piece would run from one color to the next much more quickly than it did, though. Instead the entire dishcloth has only five very wide stripes. I still love it–these colors are great–but it’s not a bit like I expected.
The second yarn, I didn’t even give a second glance among the many others on the store rack. But Little One insisted that Grandma (the intended recipient of new dishcloths) NEEDED these colors in her kitchen. Lo and behold, the finished product is awfully pretty…perfectly suited to spring in a couple weeks, in fact.
I’m constantly surprised by how different patterns or colors seem once they go from plain yarn to finished product. Is it just me? Has yarn ever surprised you?
