Since Thursday afternoon's photo, the weather turned grey and stormy Friday, yielding much knitting time. This yoke consumed me.
Just to show both sides of the yoke so far, Solstice Forest is by the coleus. I've gone into the second branch with "ivory", a pinkish beige cast to the ecru. In some light the difference between the ecru and the ivory is non-existent. (Click to embiggen.)
Again this morning I dove into the Shetland stash to find additional colors. Looking at them in different lighting conditions is essential since how they mesh with each other and yoke colors is very different in various light sources. Under fluorescent, incandescent, natural Northern light (the perfect artist's light), sun on the white picnic table, dappled sunlight -- all yield the nuances of the Shetland colors and how they play against and with each other.
All the coiless pins separate the 15 stitch repeats. And the SS Badger charm? It indicates the beginning of each row and our ferry ride across Lake Michigan several summers ago.
