- more than four colors, not in sequence (this thread only had three and they were in sequence, sadly)
- Similar values in all colors (I suspect that white violates this requirement)
- All colors equal in extent (pretty close, although the red seems to have been skimped on a bit)
- Transitional areas short (this also seemed to be the case although the blue transition did seem to be more prevalent than the red)
I suspect I made a mis-judgement on the DMC 413 background because it really blurs in with that blue, but white wouldn't have worked and I doubt that black would have worked any better.
Maybe I'll try another strip with another skein of floss late in the month --- if the spirit moves me.
Also done this week was the "fabric toss" for the color palette challenge:
There are now 13 new sections for "Kimono Revisited" and I have read through them and made notes where I thought necessary. Once I get Birds' border done, I will take that up to work on. I need to carefully select threads so my distributions of lights and darks (what few there are --- most of those threads seemed to have turned out to be medium values!) is better...
