What I couldn't figure out was what to pair the "Taste the Rainbow" yarn with? I only have enough left to trim a pair of longies. The main color could be either light purple (Wisteria) or teal (Too Teal). Aren't they pretty??
I decided they looked really pretty together, especially after I caked them up. So I thought, hey, why not stripe them into a pair of longies.
I started knitting right away. After an hour or so, I moved to the porch and knit outside in the breeze while the kids played in their bare feet in the yard.
A little while later, I had this:
Then I started thinking it looked too busy. The rainbow yarn AND the stripes. Should I frog? I pulled it off the needles to get a better look.
And about 5 minutes later......I had this:
Too busy. I frogged and decided just to go with the teal. I do love purple, and she is going to be a girl. But I really like the teal with the rainbow. I think it's because there isn't much blue in this particular skein (my fault, I dyed it) and the teal makes it seem balanced to me.
