Color Play Mohair Scarf

This morning we unpacked a box of patterns from Churchmouse Yarns. They included colour combination suggestions for the Mohair Color Play Scarf. The scarf has less stitches than the wrap that I am making and uses solid colours.

Of course I love the Violets.
Have fun playing with color — glowing, silky soft Kidsilk Haze color! Watching what comes next is so much fun. For the scarf project, we mixed four solid colors — two at a time — to create shaded color blocking. Try mixing tonal colors for ombré shading, or cross the color wheel for graphic punch! It may be impossible to stop at just one scarf project.

Kim is playing right now with Kidsilk Haze (she loves the yarn so it isn't a problem) putting together her own colour combinations. She just commented 'they are so pretty that I could make them all day'.

Speaking of Kidsilk Haze, Mr. UPS just brought in a big box of it. We are well stocked on all colours again.

Mr. Canada Post visited today as well. We have new colours from Lorna's Laces.

To round out the day Mr. FedEx stopped by too with a box from Trendsetter.

The pattern is purchased on Craftsy...

You need 3 skeins of La Furla plus some DK yarn for his face.

It's time to start packing to head home. I haven't knit a stitch today. Hopefully tonight. The Wrap is at 16". Two more inches and then I get to add in colour C. It makes me happy to get to the next colour.
