Q&A with Ydemark

Lloyswife asked:
Your shawl is beautiful! I really love the color way you chose! You did a beautiful job! I am just getting to the Nova edging on my Skywalker, but so look forward to making this shawl as well!!
Ydemark answered:
Thank you. The colors are so much richer in person. Have fun with Skywalker. Make sure you post a photo.

Robi2k1 asked:
Gorgeous! Love the variegated yarn, beautiful color!
Ydemark answered:
Thank you. It is a bit deeper in person. The picture was taken in early morning natural light.
Joyofknits asked:
Thats beautiful! Can't wait till I finish Skywalker and start on Clarus. I'm also using String Theory for Clarus but in Didgeridoo. Seeing yours gives me an idea what mine might look like. Did you do the small or large version of Clarus?
Ydemark answered:
I did the small shawl. Keep in mind, that colors vary depending upon your monitor, etc. I took this picture in early morning light. It is much darker, closer to a deep wine with a multitude of jewel-tone colors throughout. Clarus was a snap compared to Skywalker ....in my opinion. Have fun with yours. :)
janeen83 asked:
Because you used a DK weight, besides switching needle size anything else you had to do differently? I'm thinking of using a DK weight sock yarn from Cherry Tree Hills and was just curious.

I replied to you by making another comment. Oops. See my comment above.
