OH MY THE DELIMAS I CAN GET MYSELF INTO!!!!! Dont think I spelled delima right either... Any way. My niece came by yesterday with 12 skeins of yarn in 4 graduations of the same color ( Burgundy, Red,Pink, Dk Blue Med blue and light blue) Yellows and black gray and white. Im thinkin about putting greens with it. So that will be 15 colors. She is getting married in 10mos and asked me to make her a spread on my machine. I have a little Ultimate Sweater Machine that I use some times to knit boring parts of a project. It only does stockingette stitch. Any way I agreed and thought this would be a snap till I started trying to lay out the colors. She wants one of those optical Ilusion jobs and I cant figure out how to map it out. I know I have seen a ton of quilt paterns for something like this but for the life of me now that I want one I cant find it. Or figure out what to really call it for that matter. Its going to be knitted in intarsia in little blocks of 15 to 20 stitches each color. Does anybody know how to do this or where i can find a quilt or knittine graph for something like this. Just a mix of colors wont do she wants a grad so it looks like the colors fade from one to the other. I thought just rows but that looks wonky whit all the colors.
PS I have started the long handles and will post a pic when the get far enoug along to be able to tell what they are. I'm knitting them by hand. And I guess im slow....
