Experimental (Your Opinion Welcome)

So I had all these yarn scraps that were too small to do anything very useful with.  I tried a knitter’s experiment.  What do you think?

It’s Jillian Moreno’s Latifa from Knitty, with my own added twist.  Instead of knitting standardized sections in plain colors, I just used whatever scraps I had around for the garter stitch, then tied it together with the deep brown ruffles.  I really like using yarns of differing fibers and weights; it’s kind of like breaking the rules and was fun.  (Although, as the renowned Stephanie says, there are really no rules in knitting.) It’s the overall effect I’m still feeling a little experimental about.

Note: Do not try this pattern unless you have a very high tolerance for weaving in ends.  An extremely high tolerance.  Just sayin’.

Also note that these pictures were taken in indoor light.  Because I don’t have the patience to wait until our next predicted sunny day.  Which would be next Tuesday.

So, here’s where you get to express your opinion.

Feel free to leave a comment too.
