There’s a three color shawl I’ve been wanting to make. I keep telling myself I don’t need another shawl but I still wanted to make it. Several months ago, I had pulled some yarn to start it and these were the yarns I was thinking about using.
I picked it up last night and cast one. The orange is Color #1, the white-ish looking one is Color #2 and the green one is Color #3. Color #2 is really a greenish white but it’s also a thinner yarn. Once I started knitting with it, I had doubts about whether I should use it with the other two and after about 8 rows, decided it wasn’t a great choice so I ripped back.
I found this mottled green/white that I thought would be great for Color #2.
It is working perfectly with Color #1.
But, when I get to the point where I’m working with Colors #2 and 3 only, there are spots where #2 is going to blend with #3.
Those two greens are going to blend and really mess up the pattern I’m trying to create so I’m going to have to go dig for some more yarn. I had a skein of grayish blue sitting next to my chair and I think something along those lines or even closer to a medium teal may be what I need. Brown would make it very fall-ish too. I’ll see what I can find in the yarn stash but all I know now is that I probably should have stuck with the original three colors!
