Colors for Caeles

Kate Gilbert put together this really cool simulation of what Caeles looks like in different colors of Goshen and I just had to share it.

Neat, right?  There are Caeles' everywhere!  Some of the colors seem to completely change the look of the top -- the ivory one looks like an easy layering piece, like a pretty white t-shirt, the royal purple looks fancy, like something I'd wear with dressy black pants and a sparkly necklace, and the blue one is more sporty - I can see it with white capris and sandals or tennies.  Anyway, I thought this was kinda fun.

Also, I have a spreadsheet I put together when designing Caeles that maps out where the armhole and neckline increases fall.  These increases are done at the same time and I know that can be hard to keep track of sometimes, so I'm happy to send you the spreadsheet if you'd like to see it.  I think this would also help if you're thinking about making any mods to the top (such as raising the neckline).  If you're interested in the spreadsheet, you can either message me with your email address on Ravelry (id: theyarniad) or send me an email at xilary [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll send it your way.

Oh, and remember that Webs is still hosting a Caeles knitalong here (Ravelry thread here) if you'd like to join in on the fun.

Wow, I think the most amazing part is that the model looks good in every one of those colors!

That's so cool!! It's amazing how different it looks in the various colours, even though all the other elements are the same. I'm so intrigued by your spreadsheet sizing method!! That sounds very cool. Where does one learn about the spreadsheet method? Is there a book?

That IS so cool!!! Caeles has to be the perfect Summer top ~ and it looks just stunning in every color shown and I'll bet it looks super sophisticated in black as well :) PS Congratulations on your beautiful cowl design ~ it's a perfect compliment to that yarn and kick off to Summer!
