Some of you will remember that I scored some fabulous Sundara Yarn in the wacky Caterpillar colorway back in June. I started turning it into Clapotis in July, and then got distracted by Secret Yarnination. I pulled it out again last weekend.
This is as far as I'd gotten at the end of the weekend: finished the increase rows, all ready for the straight rows. I liked the possible usefulness of this as a gaudily colored false beard, especially so close to Halloween.
(I'm sorry it didn't occur to me to photograph this :-( )
However, beard it was not fated to remain. It's looking a bit more planar now, as it moves into its parallelogram shape. Here it is as of this morning (I knit a bit more during a meeting today. I'm bad).
The colors are more accurate in the second photo, I guess, but they're hard to reproduce because in person the silk gives the gold a truly metallic sheen. It looks (to me) like gold jewelry against a beautiful blue pool of water. None of these colors looks good on me, but I really don't care. I love love love this yarn, beyond all reasonableness.
I really like the word parallelogram. I even used it in a song once.
