Yeehaw! The first Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL: Earth & Sky starts August 1st!
You need three colours, one as the anchor and then two others.
The colour choice advice is:
Snap! High Contrast - Combine light, medium, and dark shades with contrasting
Crackle! Tonal - Choose 3 shades of 1 color.
Pop! Tonal with a little extra somethin’ somethin’ - Select 2 shades of one color
combined with an accent color.
I have bought the pattern, and am trying to decide what combination of yarns to use. I pulled out the stash last night and came up with the following:1. The soft option - Nimu Helvellyn ( a silk/cashmere mix that is the softest yarn possible), The Yarn Yard Lochan (merino/tencel) in beachglass, and The Yarn Yard clan (merino) in nude - but I may substitute a double strand of the Zephyr laceweight I used for my wedding shawl.
2. The nautical option - YY Clan in Midnight, Artist's Palette Sweet Feet " Garden Wall" and YY Clan Nude - I would probably need another skein of the Midnight to make this work.
3. Gold and Blue - YY Clan in Haystacks, Artist's Palette Sweet Feet " Garden Wall" and YY Clan in Midnight
4. Shady Garden - YY Clan in Kale, YY Toddy greens and browns, YY Clan Haystacks.
What would you choose?
