Now, earlier this week I got some awesome packages in the post. Yummy yarny packages, to be exact. So with some of the new skeins I came up with even more colour combos and I got to see what one of my dream combos would look like:
Oh yeah baby!! That you see there is Wollmeise in Maus Jung, Maus Alt, and Fuchsia. I had mentioned it in this post that my ideal combo would be black, grey, hot pink. Now the Maus Alt isn't exactly black, but it sure is dark. It would obviously be my anchor colour. Yet seeing them together I'm still not so sure. I know, I'm freakin' crazy!! What will it take to satisfy me? It's not like this is going to be the last shawl I'll ever knit. With that said, I went ahead and managed to trade for a skein of Schwarz (Wollmeise in black) to replace the Maus Alt. But I have a feeling that it's not going to arrive in time.
So I came up with some more pink colour options that also make me quite happy:
#2 - Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Lite in Cherry, Posy, and Tern. This last colour would be the anchor. I think the Tern really makes the other two colours pop more.
#3 - Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Lite in Cherry, Posy, and Gossamer. I think this lighter shade of grey mellows out the pinks a bit, compared to the darker grey.
I know these three new options don't really look all that much different to one another (according to Brett I'm just switching the skeins around "card trick styles" in order to confuse him), but for some reason I still can't make up my mind! Again, what do you guys think? At least this time you only have 3 photos to look at and choose from! Please, help me decide!!
