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;)
Today is Tuesday--- and I've posted over at Laced With Grace- "My name is Tracey, and I'm a Human Being, not a Human Doing." click over to seee my take on CWO's meme- In Other Words;) See you there!
