Same wool (Visjö ombré) but different lots! As I couldn't decide which to experiment with I decided to get both. Let's say it was my twined duty.
Well, I do like subtle stripes but in the small swatch to the right theye're so subtle it isn't even striped but mottled. One the other hand, I really like how the mitten gradually moves from dark to light, more so in reality than in the photo.
I thought of adding some simple pattern, but decided that would draw attention from the changes. I'm not sure what to do with the small swatch: possibly combine it with white or dark grey instead.
Tuesday was an achingly beautiful day and I happened to have the afternoon off. What better way to spend it than visiting one of my favourite museums, Millesgården? The sculptures looked even more glorious than usual against the blue spring sky.
