Cloudy nuvem

I was browsing through Ravelry during Chinese New Year and found out a nuvem knitted by musicomusico of Japan http://www.ravelry.com/projects/musicomusico/nuvem in which two colours were used for this hexagonal shawl.

Being inspired by this, I quickly went through my stash and got a similar yellowish colour from Dandelion of Madelinetosh and a white with specks of aqua blue from Alegria of Manos Del Uruguay.  Knew that it will be extremely difficult to get Wollmeise in Hong Kong, I decided to start casting on my nuvem using these two yarns.
