WIPwed - Nightshade My So Called Scarf

After I saw Alice's My So Called Scarf, I knew I had to make one for myself. I had originally thought I'd use a bit of leftover Malabrigo worsted merino; but I had less than one skein and it just didn't feel right for this project.

WIP Nightshade - My So Called Scarf

Then, earlier this week I realized I had the perfect yarn for it in my stash already - Colinette Mezzotint in this awesome nightshade colorway. It's not as soft as the Malabrigo would have been, but I doubt I could ever find a pattern better suited to showing off this yarn's spectacular colors.

Colinette MezzotintSimply put, they're gorgeous! Teals, blues and purples swirl with bits of green and a fair bit of grey mixed in - the finished object will look stunning with my new grey wool peacoat. (I'll try and get a pic of that soon, too - but no promises, I'm gone on Friday!)

Now, I'm flaking on my needle size choice, and wondering if I should frog it and restart with larger needles. I started with 10.5's and now I'm thinking I need to go up to 13's. Hhmmmph.

  7. Beautiful color yarn, and I love this scarf but alas...I live in Miami, no need. :D Thanks for the positive comment on my Razor Cami. Yeah, It turned out okay but of course in that pic on my blog I'm hiding the armpit area where I messed up. I didn't add the straps where the points are at the armpit division...looks funny, but I really care. ha ha.

    Anyway, thanks again!
