Color Continues To Amaze Me

The last thing you want to do when you are sick is to write. So I had to put my blog yet again on hold for a few days. Tis the season to share - GERMS! And when you are surrounded by them you are bound to pick up a few.

As I spoke in recent posts, I am working with my existing stash of yarns. I've been wanting to make an infinity scarf. I didn't want to figure out the number of stitches I needed so I looked for an easy knit pattern that I could use several colors with. Actually, a no brainer and a project that I could bring to knitting groups so I don't have to think. Well, I finished the scarf even before I went to any group because I enjoyed working with the colors I picked out.

As you can see from the picture, I had a varigated yarn with several colors to work with. I looked at all the colors in the yarn and then I had to find yarns that I had that could match with the blend of colors. So I picked out four solid light colors that blended and took those light colors and found four solid dark colors of the same color family.

I alternated between using a solid and then varigated and I repeated that throughout the scarf. I loved the flow of the colors.

Sometimes it might take a while to figure out what you will do with those one skeins of yarn or left over yarn balls. Don't rush it, just keep your eyes open to project ideas and it will happen. It did for me and I love my infinity scarf.
