Blue / Orange Scarf . . . In Progress

Parrot's picture

Thanks for the interest that several of you have shown in my first dyed scarf project.  Several have requested a pic of the scarf, albeit in progress, to show the colors and how the orange is playing into the colors.  So . . . attached is a pic of what has been done so far (only about 12 inches thus far; the total length will be 60 inches).  There is no special pattern; just simple 5 X 7 rib; 100% Brown Sheep wool, worsted weight, knit on #8 needles.  I hope the colors show well on your monitor.

Hi Parrot, The colors are

Hi Parrot, The colors are just great. Just wish I had the will and incentive to learn to dye. Here in Oz it seems nobody does their own dying, at least I haven't come across them, so I have no one to turn to for some practical advice. Your results were certainly worth the effort.

I love it!  Lots of subtle color variation, and the orange is showing up in a fabulous irregular wave.  I think this yarn was a happy accident indeed.
