You MUST use your imagination here - the picture does not show
the right shades - the original fabric is white - it is hand-painted
with lavender (too light), blue (too bright) and a lot of glitter (just
right) - I always seem to try to get an ocean-feel in my projects and I
think/know I over-did in this one. But being on a budget, I decided what
the heck and go ahead and use the darn thing - next to impossible to
get 16ct fabric in my area without having to order it and I wanted to
start it. So I'm making-do and using my Frankenstein fabric. I think
once all 9 parts are done on it, it may turn out pretty cool. Then
again, if not to others, well, it's slowly growing on me. The white
stitching shows up much better in person.
And if you think this is funny, wait till you see the 2nd tutorial sock my mom attempted to knit - that really will have you cringing and giggling :) (yes, she knows I am writing this and she agrees with me).
