The first colour combo I chose with the Cascade 220 is a bold one - a deep teal blue (Azure) with a lighter Lemon Yellow. I did this particular weaving draft in last year's scarves, as well, but in a colour combination that didn't have enough contrast. This one has lots of contrast, and in fact vibrates a bit when you look at it. I'm pretty sure that some kid will love this crazy scarf. I hope it gives them a bit of a puzzle, too, to figure out how there are vertical stripes on one side of the scarf and horizontal stripes on the other side.
Yesterday, I worked up a second colour combination with the three-colour hopsack. This time, I used the Peruvian Highland Wool in Peach for the warp and did the weft in Brick and Natural. As I mentioned, the gingham effect is much more successful this time, presumably because of the use of the Natural yarn.
Living life somewhere in the grey area between Liz Lemon and Nancy Botwin. I live with my beloved Heterosexual Life Mate (HLM), no kids, two beautiful feline ladies, and what I can only assume are self-replenishing stacks of fabric and yarn.
