Rose Gold

Rose gold 
I've started getting darker on my Rose Gold brioche shawl!  I've completed the first two tones of each gradient and I'm on the third now (working from light to dark).  Both the pink (Canis Major gradient) and the gray (Beachcomber gradient) tones change at the same time.  I've just been tying my ends off on the edges and I'll weave them in later.  I do need to find out how to weave in ends nicely in brioche because I'm not sure what the best way to do that is.  I kind of just winged it on my Meandering shawl and counted on the fuzz from the Kid Silk Night to cover up any issues (and it did), but there will be a lot more ends on this project and there's no fuzz for cover.  I'm sure that between the brioche book and the Craftsy class, there are directions for weaving in ends.

Can I just say how much fun it is to work with these gradient yarns?  I love watching the colors get darker and the tiny little skeins are just adorable!  (Each skein in each gradient is 133 yards.)  I definitely want to do more with more gradients.  Actually, I kind of want to collect them all, just to look at and squeeze!  I don't really need them all, so I'm trying to show some restraint.
