Nice Dye Job

I started a Scrappy Lengthwise scarf a bluesy type project for a traveling scarf. I put it away though, and started a different scarf. When I needed to grab a quick, fun and colorful project, I grabbed this, last weekend when we went to Emma Krombees for a fun escape.

I usually pull a skeinlet out of a bag at random and put it in. This time, I pulled out a lovely skeinlet that reminded me of the fall colors. I knew I had 3 more, so I dug them out and put them all in.

After that, I knew I needed something dramatic on the other edge. I wanted orange, but had no orange yarn. 1 1/2 packets of orange and blue Kool-Aid later and I had my yarn.

The finished result is so pretty. I love the way the tertiary colors blended together, even though it was all a happy accident. I wore it the next day, it was perfect weather for a slim decorative scarf.
