Love the pattern. Noro's Aurora is... challenging. Knots. Irregular colour sequences. Missing colour.
I should have listened to Jill, who knitted this . Jill's Missing Colour was a lime green (I think!).
Spot my missing colour.
A blue-violet, completely missing from the first ball.
And just look at the first four colours on the second ball. Dark grey, light grey, dark grey, light grey. Then violet.
So I've cast on the second sleeve. I've decided to match colours, at least for the sleeves. Jill also wasn't far wrong when she told me that she had little balls of Aurora scattered around, trying to match up the sleeves.
So far, so good.
Can you see how the lace pattern leans? I'm not sure yet which sleeve with be on which side. I want to add an extra 10 sts to the bottom of the shrug, so I'll play around, see which way looks best (unless someone has some handy tips for biased fabrics and how they drape).
The colours aren't as bright as this. There's no orange or pink, for example, but rust and burgundy. That's nighttime photography for you.
