I'm having a crisis with the colours I'm choosing at the moment.
I've always had the problem of selecting colours because I like them, regardless of whether they go with the rest of my wardrobe - and more often than not they don't. But the problem now is that I don't like these last three shawls at all.
This is the first clapotis I made (unblocked and I think it will remain so). It is Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb colourway "watercolour". Now the strange thing about this is that I made a curly-whirly scarf for my daughter last Christmas in this yarn and it looked a million dollars. So why don't I like it now it's a clapotis?
This is the gorgeous Cashmere/Silk DK from Posh Yarns in shade Highland Mist and it's not even still on the needles. I loved the colour on screen but ...I shall think of something else to do with it.
And the lovely Shoalwater Shawl.....
I thought I'd chosen so carefully to match the pattern picture. But my yarn is too dark. There is too much very dark blue and none at all of the really lighter shade. I'd rather start again with something I really like....
It's a problem choosing from the web sites but all being well, I'm going to Ally Pally on Friday so I shall have plenty of opportunities for choosing in the flesh so to speak.
