The diagonal bands do a great job of breaking up the stripes, don't you think? Only I've had a hard time getting the left-slanting bands tight enough.
The odd thing is that my camera refuses to accept that this yarn is purple.
By upping the red in the color balance I was able to get something closer to the actual colors, but look what that does to the green towel!
Oh well. Do you think it's just a Nikon digital camera thing? Or is it The Color Purple?
