What if?

I read the Knitter Nerd blog post linked here, and the bright beautiful photo in it got my mind thinking.

What if?

What if you took some variegated yarn, cast on enough stitches for a scarf or a stole or something where shape doesn’t matter too much, and then knit.  But whenever you came to a color you liked, you worked short rows until the color changed, then kept knitting until you came to another color you liked?  Or the same color?  What if you did it with the dominant color in the skein?  Or the non-dominant one.  What would it look like?  What would it be?

OMG,. what if you did it on the leg of a sock (or, ideally, two?)

Would it look like her beautiful circle? (Well, no, unless you cast on for a circle, of course.)

I’m curious.  I might add this to my list of things to try.

Thank you, Knitter Nerd, for letting me hijack your big ask with my wandering brain…I hope you hit your Kickstarter goal soon.
