Thanks! I think it's Wendy's design (which could explain why she was able to fix the things she did). She's done a couple of them (at least) which is where I got the idea. I should really know better...

That's beautiful. It's like frost patterns on a window. Definitely one of the finer things of a cold winter. And infinite strings of pearls too. Your mom is sure to love it. We never outgrow liking things our little boys have made by hand.

I saw the same thing -- frost on glass. Kinda neat. And appropriate for what it is.

Serendipity? Or did you expect the frosty effect to come out as it did?

Pretty much serendipity. I'd done color changes this way before, but they were never done in pattern stitches. So I didn't really know exactly what to expect. I was pretty sure it would turn out cool though. (No pun intended.)

I was busting some stash on a cat blanket once and had several different shades of acrylic. In that case I didn't carry one color ALL the way through, but they were in a "rotation". Got kind of a gradient effect. But that was using 4 strands, and only changing one color at a time. I didn't have enough different shades of grey to do that with this (or the skill to work that many strands in this pattern).

Wendy has a sweater she made a long time ago that she did by winding 3 colors into 2 balls, with one color common to both and then doing a Fair Isle pattern using those two the way you'd normally use two single colors. The effect was pretty neat. I'm not half good enough with Fair Isle to attempt something like that -- yet. But maybe one day...

Love the scarf! You did a great job on it. The name makes me cringe, though. Decaf coffee is not allowed in our house. We need our Go To Work coffee.

Yeah, decaf... I never touch the stuff myself. But that's how crazy this thing started making me before it was done.
