What materials did you use? I used a hand-dyed yarn I bought in Colorado Springs. I had it stashed for many years, but I knew I had enough yarn and thought the variegation would be minute. As Laura suggested I wish I had used a solid color, however, it looks pretty good. I learned a lot knitting this shawl.

I really like the color...but I can see where it might have fought with the pattern

Thanks for the your comment - appreciate your input. To me the Craftsy classes are all about learning and I have really learned a lot. I am starting on the Clarus Shawl in a plain color, so I will have the opportunity to see the difference in plain vs. variegated.
