SAL/KAL color combinations

So...I've been having a lot of fun (perhaps too much fun) thinking about fibery color combinations for the Two Color Shawl SAL/KAL. And a ton of time playing with photo collages. Below are some possiblities for shawl combinations, just in case, you know, you're having trouble...(or need some enabling assistance!)

Some super bright combos:

From left to right (and top to bottom): Parakeet and Yellow Fluorescent Protein, Coomassie Blue and Blue Jay, Exponential Monet and Roses, Salamander and Ethidium Bromide, Pollinator and Oregon Green.

A bit subdued...

Clotted Cream and Hawa Mahal, London Fog and Snow Shadows, Berry Compote and Haematoma, Clotted Cream and Botticelli's Girl.

With a neutral:

Golden Mean and Clotted Cream, The Far Pavillions and London Fog, Golgi and Spice Market, Clotted Cream and Pollinator, Golgi and Flamingo.

You could always combine two semi-solid colors for a really striking shawl. I'm thinking fondly of the combo between the acid chartreuse of YFP and the subtlty of Clotted Cream.  Or Coomassie Blue and Xylene Cyanole for a gorgeous symphony of blues.

 

Or maybe go seasonal with Holly Walk and Candy Cane together? Or either with Congo Red or Oregon Green? Maybe Turkey Day with Congo Red or Ethidium Bromide? The possibilities are endles.

 

You can place orders for you custom dyed fibers now, so be sure you're ready to start spinning on 1 March!
