I couldn’t wait for this thing to dry to post a photo. I’ll get a model shot and do the whole “Finished Project” thing when it’s off the blocking board, but Color Affection couldn’t wait for the glamour shot.

I think it actually looks like some kind of mutant nautilus thing. Mutant Nautilus, that’s a good name for it. The shape is sort of weird, I know. That big C curve on the left is exacerbated (helped??) by the way the yarns twist around each other in the three-color section. It makes that top edge sort of tight, pulling it into a big curve. I rather like it. I tried it on of course before I washed it, and that curve makes it snuggle up around the neck very nicely.

More details later when it’s dry.

  1. Just emailed you…asked if you’ve finished bo of your Color Affection, and here it is! Love the red.

  2. One of the yarns I am using has little or no stretch, so it makes that curve r-e-a-l-l-y tight. I am putting a yo between the first and second stitch of the row to give it a little more space. Your CA is inspirational!

  3. My color affection has turned into one of my favorite and most functional items I have knit. Mine is made with lace weight so smaller…it makes the most delightful scarf. I hope you enjoy yours as much as i do mine.
