A Forest Dark

A Forest Dark 
The second quarter KAL for ESK this year is a Fade Along, in other words, knit something that fades from one color to another.  I'm planning to do two fading projects, but I've only cast on my first one at this point.  I'm knitting Stay Out of the Forest using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Worn Denim (I had an extra skein left from my Aki cardigan earlier this year), Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles in Dragonfly, Dream in Color Jilly in Galaxy, and Malabrigo Mechita in Whale's Road (R to L in the picture). 
The Forest Dark
I took this picture yesterday afternoon, so it doesn't show last night's knitting but I'm currently through the first color (Worn Denim) and more than halfway through the second color (Dragonfly).  I'll start striping in the third color (Galaxy) in another couple of rows or so.  The knitting is easy to do, but the way the shawl is shaped, the rows are getting pretty long. 
The Forest Dark
I'll admit that I was a little concerned with how Worn Denim would fade into Dragonfly, but I'm actually really happy with how it looks.  The Dragonfly-Galaxy-Whale's Road fading will be smaller color jumps.
