The ruffles -

This is what you're letting yourself into: (see below)

Is it worth it? JUST!

You need to take your time, relax and concentrate - no interruptions!

Won't be doing this again in a hurry.

Enjoy

Tamar, that looks like it's coming along great! I cut and paste a picture of my idea of modifying the latifa to uneven blocks of color and got the following. I decided random widths wasn't what I wanted, but am doing full widths of black and grey and half-widths of yellow and maroon. When I've gotten a bit farther, I'll post a picture of it so far.

I did post a finished photo of my daughter's button scarf if you want to see what was holding up my latifah work.

Finished! At last.

I'm very happy with it except for the royal blue which makes the scarf too bright. I think that it would have been better with only the purple, navy blue and olive green.

Tamar, you did a fabulous job. I understand what you mean about the blue being a different hue - but I love the color.

p.s. I'm still only about half way done with the color block stuff.
