I'm in the process of crocheting six lace duplicates of a cobbler's last that was once embedded deep in my family's history.

If all goes according to plan, I will somehow find a way to lighten and/or darken the resultant copies so that an ombre effect is imparted when they are lined up in a row. They will hopefully gradate from a brown that just about matches the wood of the ancient last to to the lightest ivory that carefully applied mists of bleach can muster.
