And the winner was…
Lime and grey!
I was SO thrilled to cast on!
I’m bucking tradition a little bit, and using three different kinds of yarns, although they’re all (approximately) the same weight. My guiding light was color… and I bought whatever gave me the color combo I desired!
My first color is a very light ash grey in Shibui Alpaca… I’ve already completed the first section:
I’m just in love with this color! It looks lighter in person… it’s always hard to get amazing colors to look right on camera, isn’t it?
The second color I’m using is Lemon Lime in Yummy Fingering by Candy Skein. I ordered it just the other day, and it’s in the mail!
It’s the most amazing color of bright lime green… it’s the same yarn that I used for my Haruni:
I can’t wait until it arrives!
The third color is a deep charcoal color of Heritage Silk (Cascade). It’s pleasant and soft… but most importantly, the right color!
I’m a huge fan of Veera… I think her designs are so clever and well-written. I’ve knit a couple Stripe Study Shawls, and I relished every minute of knitting… because there was always a short-row to keep me entertained.
The downside of the Stripe Study, though, is that it’s so asymmetrical, that it can be a challenge to wear. I usually end up wearing a pin. (totally worth it, just not ideal)
So far, Color Affection is a bit less engaging of a knit… the short rows don’t begin until the third section. However, I think the end result will be much more wearable… I’ll keep you posted!
