Remember this little gem I purchased from the Loopy Ewe? Well, I was inspired today by Knitting Knirvana's post to get started . . . I pulled out some KnitPicks Memories sock yarn in the Cape Cod colorway and put them together.

They looked truly horrible together. Wouldn't you agree??

And then this marvelous thing happened - a Chevron Scarf was started. I can hardly believe the color combination and that it works so well - the colors are very bright in good light - we had some crazy storms here this afternoon . . . This makes me so happy!

Nice choice! Isn't it just the strangest thing how the colors work so well together??? Glad I could provide some inspiration! :)

Lisa, the bright and dark colours are beautifully matched. I can see a stunning chevron coming up... :)

WOW!!! Great choices. I love how those scarves come together in the end. Is the knitting very mindless?
