I started just playing around with different colour combinations, since I have a lot of colours to work with, this year, so I made a scarf with a combination of red/orange/yellow in the warp. I was going to do the whole weft in a lighter yellow (as you see in the bottom right of the photo) but decided that the light colour was washing out all of the vibrancy of the warp. I plopped some orange stripes in there, and that helped, so then I switched to some darker paprika stripes and liked that too. For the darkest colour, I also shrunk the width of the stripe, just to keep things interesting. I think the way it changes looks pretty cool.
Then I decided to try something with a greenier tone, so I put a couple of pale greens and a yellow in the next warp and wove it with a light blue and a darker blue/green, in an unequal ratio. The combination of colours makes me think of Aquaman, though I'm sure no kids today would even know who that is.
