Snap Judgement

While browsing my stash this weekend I decided to put two yarns together in a combination that had never occurred to me before. One was a pink that is so bright it seems harsh, and the other is a graduated grey that seems perfect for men's socks, but deadly dull to knit. Together, they are making this:

And the moral of the story is, that it is always worth while to buy yarn on sale. Even when it is an oddly colored sock yarn.

  3. What an awesome colour combination! I'm forever seeing solid neutrals mixed with variegated colours. This is a great twist on that.

    Plus black + pink can never be wrong.

  4. It's great how those two colors compliment each other. One gets more pep, the other gets toned down. Nice.

  13. Follow your instincts wherever they may take you! I must say though that I dislike pink intensely, and I dislike gray too, but together Laurie they look great!
