That's more like it
I'm much happier with the top one. It give me hope for the project. The two-hands, two color is less lump and more even. I still need to take a gauge measurement...... And if it's a colorway already in use in marketing a particular product, I'm not seeing the product.
I'm a bit discouraged that at this point, 2 nights before we're allowed to cast on, I still have no vision of what I want the finished tam to look like. I usually start a project knowing what sort of a thing I want. It will look like that picture, except...... Well, part of my challenge is that I'm allowed to use any of the charts Mary Rowe includes in her book, but not replicate a particular pictured tam. In general life I can copy, but that's not the point of this exercise, is it?
I suppose I'd best start with measuring my gauge, which will let me know which of the charts will fit the numbers. Then will come how many colors I want to use and how I'll vary the colors within. Then which colors to use.
Trust me, you don't want to be around when I have to choose ice cream at a stand I've never been to.
