Chevron Scarf.. and adventure in color.

Chevron Scarf- from: Last Minute Knitted Gifts, Joelle Hoverson
Art Yarns Regal Silk- in colors #119 and 115- green and Pink/orange
Holz and Stein Circ's in US #7's (the regal silk is heavier than what's called for in the pattern)

The thing about this scarf...... it's a stretch for me, not the knitting- that's simple. The colors. The directions call for "Complementary" colors. I get the concept- it's just contrary to my personality. See- I'm a "matchy- matchy" kind of girl....

S0, my first attempt at this scarf was with 2 pretty- but coordinating not complementary yarns. Solid pink with a variegated pink granite color--- (STR and Reynolds Sea Wool)

On the left- It's Schaefer Anne In a blue-green, handpaint and STR in Mustang Sally

On the right- it's STR in Pink Granite (from the sock club- o6) and Reynolds Soft Sea Wool in Pink. Both combinations are nice--- (the yarns are FAB) but they just aren't "popping".... they were safe. blue and red- go together. Solid pink and pink variegate go together... but no zip. So I went to the LYS... and sat on the floor until I could make myself go outside of my little color box. and this is what I came up with.

I figure- If God would use these colors together- I can too;)
