Earlier, I posted about accidentally buying yarn too gorgeous to use. I’ve done it again…these Scheepjes Maxi BonBon yarns are gorgeous too don’t you think? This time, I actually have a project in mind though…I’m planning on creating a pashmina / scarf using these yarns…so I am going to use them!
First, all I have to do is decide upon my colourway. I’ve enjoyed how adding grey stripes to my cosy-stripe blanket gave it a uniform sort of feel, whilst the colours make it “pop”. I’m imagining the shawl/pashmina will be rectangular and have stripe of different colours, interspersed with grey stripes and with a grey border.
Normally, my instinct is to go crazy with the colours but I’ve also got in mind that if I want to wear this, I might tone down the colour choices a bit so that I don’t feel quite so much like a rainbow!
I’ve been playing around with different colours that I could put together. My immediate instinct is to do something really colourful like this…
Is that a bit too rainbow?…OK what about this…?
I love them both (and might make them both!) but I think that currently I’m more in the mood for cool blues than girly pinks so yes…I think this is the winner! – looks good with the grey too I think! yay!
If you’re interested, the Grey yarn is Scheepjes Catona (242) and the Scheepjes Maxi BonBon yarns are:
Vivid Blue (146)
Petron Blue (400)
Dark Teal (401)
All I have to do now is work out my pattern….a job for another day I think!
