In which I confess my inability to follow a pattern.

A while back I bought a GLOWING braid from the fabulous Micamynx. I mean it practically glows in the dark.

I decided to challenge myself a bit and split the braid in two lengthwise. My goal was to spin the halves separately and ply them together. I was hoping that I would spin consistently enough that the colors from the two halves would match up. The results weren’t half bad.

I ended up with about 250 yards of a worsted weight yarn. Next I had to decide what to knit.  I found a cute little free pattern on Ravelry – Little Shells by Holly Griffin-Weidener.  The only problem is that once I printed the pattern out, I sort of goofed it up by not reading carefully enough. So the idea for the pattern is definitely not mine, but it’s my own interpretation of it!
