Pink lady knits

New Yarn

When I was in Tucson, my Father took me to a lovely yarn shop called Purls. The shop had a lovely selection of yarns ranging from Malabrigo Lace to Cascade 220, and they had an impressive array of sock yarns. They had a plethora of books and magazines on knitting and plenty of needles and accessories. The staff was very friendly and it was a pleasant experience.
While I was there I decided to pick up some yarn for a project I've been wanting to do for a while; The Cheveron Scarf from LMKG. There are so many beautiful examples in the internets, in Flickr and on Ravelry, and I wanted to do mine in Koigu like so many had before me...so I procured two lovely skeins. In hindsight, I'm not sure I got enough yarn, however, I can have a short version if this doesn't make a full length scarf.


What do you think? I think that the color variation should be very subtle and chic...both of the skeins have pinks and a lovely mustard yellow running through them, and that should tie them together nicely.

Both of the colour ways look like they'll go really well together.
