New Table Runner

This is the new table runner I made to replace the turquoise cloth one with variegated turquoise yarns.  Since I'm having a wall in the room painted turquoise, I decided to cut down on the amount of that color used there.  The sofa is light cream with solid turquoise cushions so I thought the table runners would look better in white with turquoise yarn.  

I used the same variegated turquoise yarn that has yards of one shade before changing.  I felt I achieved the variegated look by making sure each row of the pattern held a slightly different shade.  I won't ever again make the mistake of not checking a skein of variegated yarn to make sure each shade is no longer than 6".  

It's very easy to put too much of one color in a room but I think mine is okay now.  The wall gets painted on Thursday and I'm hoping I'll like it.  I've never had an accent wall before so this will be a new experience for me.
