Unexpected Ikat!

I have been ignoring my Scarf Style projects - (hanging head in shame).

I have been obsessed first by the Wool Peddler's Shawl, then by the twin demons of the Fir Cone Square and the Iditarod.

But now that they are all complete, I'm back on track and I got back to knitting Misty Garden. Can you tell where I changed skeins?


Isn't that interesting how the green stripe is lining up almost perfectly along the center of the scarf? And the edges are coming out almost perfectly even in the darker rose color? I could not have done this so well if I had tried.

Since it is the middle of three skeins to be used, and I'm assuming the third skein will go back to the same randomness the first had so I will have some symmetry (not that symmetry is always important...) I'm going to leave it as is.

    Your shawls are beautiful! I have been considering buying that book.

    I like the way the color is laying out on your scarf!

    is that the yarn that the pattern calls for or something different? (it's gorgeous)
