Maybe it was all that Kath & Kim I watched over the weekend. But this is turning out a bit more colorful than I’d had in mind.
Although I’m halfway finished with the edging, I’m still not sure about that purple stripe, waylaid up there between the body of the shawl and the bird’s eye lace. Especially once the orange border gets thrown into the mix.
Skye – Thistle – Sunset seemed like an ideal blend of tweedy goodness in the skein. Now I’m not so sure. Thoughts?
I’m definitely finishing the edging … if only because I’m so close to done. And I want to have some time — post-blocking (on my new blocking wires, coming soon!) — to see if I mellow to the purple or not. Otherwise, that’s a lot of knitting to rip.
p.s. Rowan Scottish Tweed 4 ply, I love you.
