I couldn’t wait to cast on for the mohair scarf yesterday. I love the colors in the hank and I couldn’t wait to see them stripe up. Isn’t that the fun part with hand-dyeds?
Well, the scarf just isn’t striping like I had envisioned:
Instead of striping the colors are kinda blending, and the green seems to be alot stronger than I had hoped. I really don’t care for brighter greens so I tried mixing in some other yarns to temper it.
First, I wound the brighter mohair with it:
|proof that more is sometimes less.
Then I wound it up with some Manos navy from my stash:
That’s not doing it either.
So I’m not sure what to do with it just yet. I like the pinks, reds and oranges in it. Maybe a monchromatic hand-dyed in subtle pink/red/orange variations? Or maybe striping it with black – a few rows of black, a few rows of the mohair? What do you think? I still like the yarn, but I’m really not sure what to do with it.
What would you do?
