A work in progress - Spectra

Originally saw a sample of the Spectra pattern while shopping at The Woolpack a few months ago and fell in love. I knew immediately that I wanted to do a rainbow colored self striping yarn with black contrast yarn, so when I found myself at Webs a short time after that I picked up the perfect yarn. By the way, this may be one of the only times I have ever bought yarn with a pattern already in mind. :)

After a few tests of the pattern, I decided to go with more of a capelet style, rather than a scarf, and this is what I have so far:


As I started to see how the striping pattern was working up, I thought it would pretty for the color changes to be mirrored on each side, but now I am thinking that I am going to run out of black yarn before I get back to the color I started with. Not sure yet whether I will buy more yarn, or just leave it mismatched. I guess I will see how it looks as I get closer to the end.
