New Chevron, 1 Color The Same!

So, I spent a day or so thinking about my Chevron scarf, and what I wanted to do about it. I decided to pull out a skein of BMFA's Rhondonite, in medium weight, and see how it would look in my chevron scarf with the Black Onyx.

I couldn't believe that there was a knot in this skein too! It's the 2nd skein from this same order, with a knot to tie the yarn together. Total disappointment. What's my luck?

And.... I present to you know, Rhondonite & Black Onyx together. I think they go so well together. Finally - I'm happy about this project. I'm loving the pink mixes in Rhondonite.

The knot in the skein, turned out that it was at the beginning of the cake I wound. Grrr. Not the end of the world, I'll weave it in, but that sucks. Wasn't expecting that to show up. And on top of it, I tried to knit straight with it in there, but it undid as I started knitting .... so I had to take out a few stitches to leave enough to weave in the ends. Grrr!

The dullness of the greys work so well with pinks! Why didn't I think of this in the first place??

Oh, and I'm using 4mm (US6) needles, not 3.75mm (US5) like the pattern calls for. I knit tight.

I'm glad this combination is working out for you. You, as a host, definately deserve a good chevron scarf.

That looks great - so vibrant.

I really like these colors together. The austerity of the gray and the brilliance of the pink tones makes for a lovely combination.
