As I started out I planned to use only three colors: Turquoise, magenta and yellowgreen. After a while it got really boring and I added some other colors just to spark it up. Knitting has to be fun - no matter what.
Then some yellowgreen and some orange. There were no way back - more colors as bright as possible.
It did not take long before I was in this stripy business of getting the most out of the colors.
The scarf is not as bright as the Stash And Stripes - there are simply not that many bright colors in the yarn I chose.
And it is a bit shorter. That makes it fine to put inside a jacket. After blocking it was even more soft and lovely.
I never thought I should love knitting stripes that much.The spit splicing really made it so much easier and better looking.
It is so fun to see what happens with the colors as they are knitted together. Most of the colors I used here, are the same I put together in my Meadow Scarf. They were already in my stash.... I added a couple more colors in my effort to get it brighter.
What can I say? I count my blessings every day. And there are a lot of them. If I start counting my stripes - I will never get finished.
