MANDALA OVAL CAL PATTERN...to be cont





Sage, Marble and olive dk, the marble was something else at some point  and the sage and olive are part balls of left overs. 

PROJECT NOTES
As this is a left over yarn project, I started with 3 shades of green and a a ball of Lime green Marble dk that had been something else but i had un traveled it to re use...it ran out and i hadn't really used that much of the plain yarns so are think was in order. 

The DK Marble had a tiny amount of purple in the spin every now and then so i picked a plain purple yarn and i found a space dyed pink through brown sorry I have no idea what it is but those are the 2 yarns i have added to the mix so far
