Not Marsala

  • Another sweater made of odds and ends in the same color family
  • From lace-weight to dk
  • In silk, merino and mohair
  • A little bit more rose or berry than Pantone's marsala.
  • Twist hand-dyed silk-merino lace creates a sheer fabric
  • Other yarns carried along to create opaque and textured stripes
  • Sitting in stash in WIP status until I decided to rip back the sleeve and redo with a different carry-along yarn.
  • Sleeve increase sequence comes from a_simmetrie.
  • Not happy with the holes in the lifted increase in the sheer stripes
  • The ladies of Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins suggested I wear it like I meant to create a deconstructed look.
  • Finished object here
