Blending the Blues

In the middle section of the forewings, I want to gradually blend from the darker blue to the pale blue. First I remove four sugas from a strand of dark blue silk and replace them with four sugas of pale blue (each strand of silk contains 16 sugas). I worked one row of stitches with this blend. I then work two rows in a 50/50 blend and finally two rows in a blend containing 4 sugas of dark blue and 12 sugas of pale blue.
