The problem is that light brown. Do you think that it gets a little lost?
See, there’s the graying-green at the bottom, then the gray, the golden brown, then the yellowish color, then the golden brown again, and the gray, which is as far as I’ve gotten.
The thing is that the actual pattern is this lovely, multi-hued diamond pattern, and the colors I’ve got (since they are, of course, in a completely different yarn) don’t quite match. And since my gold-brown is really such a close match to the dark brown of the background, you kind of lose the cohesiveness of the pattern. Don’t you think?
Or? Use the red for the center row and use the yellowish yarn for the two bands spanning the center, currently being used by the golden-brown?
Of course, this will mean some more frogging … but at least it’s just ten rows.
And, still, I am very happy with the way the Silky Wool is working in this pattern. That’s nice, don’t you think? (grin)
