Do you see what I see?

I've been laboriously working on my sister's lace shawl. A couple of weeks ago, I crossed the halfway point (where the diagonal line changes direction) and kept plodding along. Today, I decided to stretch it out and see it all laid out. And look!!


What the hell is that?!?! How did the yarn just dramatically change color like that? A dyelot issue? Nope, this is all one big skein. Instead it appears to be just a stroke of bad luck.

Kim, I'm hoping you think this is one of those charming anomalies that happen with handmade knits. There's no going back now. Posted by Picasa

It still looks beautiful, and I am sure it will be loved.

How bizarre! Oh well, I guess it adds character!

I'll just try not to spread it out on the floor very often and hope no one notices.

I think it's cool - folks might even think it's SUPPOSED to be that way. Unless, of course, you blog about it...

It's so sudden it actually looks intentional. Seriously.
