Find Your Fade is in timeout for a little bit. Just too much garter for too long. I finished the section I was in, but need a little recovery time before I go back in.
I’ve been wanted to try out mosaic knitting, so found a cowl pattern that has been in my library for a while, Colorshift Mosaic Cowl. I fished around in my stash for yarn and came up with some interesting combinations. I have just bunches of miniskeins, and fortunately this pattern works with that need.
The gray is good for the neutral/background color, and I like the Hedgehog fibers mini right under it for the central section, but had trouble deciding what to put with it.
Option 1 is to add 2 Madelinetosh unicorn tails minis – Neon Peach and Edison Bulb. This is a super bright combo. It definitely stand out against the gray, and both go with the central variegated mini.
Option 2 is a little bit calmer. The Blue Mule Fiber minis are also sparkly, though it’s hard to pick out in the picture. I was a little concerned the blue wouldn’t be different enough in value from the gray, but in a black & white picture it is different enough. It’s interesting how different the variegated skein looks depending on what is with it. I was poking around my stash for some pink, but that’s not a color I have a lot of.
I’m leaning toward option 2. Have a preference? Feel free to share below!
