On one episode, one of the designers used a pattern that involved using variegated yarn with a solid color to create a simple design.  I am not sure which episode or pattern it was--I was running in and out of the room and just caught part of the show.   I love the look of variegated yarns but they never look right.  Thanks and I love your show!!
