Don’t ask me, I don’t know how to art

49″ and ready to start the fifth set of branches. It’s getting there.

Then, for the fog rolling in as it comes over the coastal range every morning here, the question is do I seed stitch the transition between white and pale fog blue, alternating colors in a transition? Or long horizontal lines alternating and stacking irregularly? That sounds a whole lot easier to do than seed stitch in two colors, but I’m not entirely convinced it’s the look I want.

Or I could do the color change brutalist fashion like the earth tones below: it’s this color here and that color there. Bam. Done.

My mind’s eye says that the seed stitch option would probably look best? But then maybe the brutalist option would provide continuity? Oh man!

And you do too do art!!!

Speaking as a knitter who loathes doing seed stitch, I can’t really answer that question! But I wish you all the best with the decision. It’s looking great!

Okay, I think I have some suggestions. I’ve knit a lot of art lately, and would suggest doing each color across part of a row, and also alternating rev st st and st st depending on which color you want to be dominant. Hope this helps.
