Falling Leaves triloom shawl
I just pulled this shawl off of my triloom. It has been washed, and is laying out flat to dry. I'm so in love with how cuddly this yarn is! It is hard to get a good representation of the colors involved, but this shawl looks like a pile of autumn leaves--except much much more snuggle worthy. I'll swipe my daughter after school tomorrow, so she can model for me again.
I'd like to get three of these done and up in the shop. This makes two--I'll list it probably tomorrow night. The third will wait until I've tried out my new loom, but I'm starting to mull over color choices now. Current options: there are some beautiful purples in this yarn. My daughter recommended black with a bit of red, to go for the goth crowd. I like working with greens, so if I was making one for me it would be green and probably rusty brown, with maybe some more blue or teal thrown in. And my sweetie's sister put her vote in for pink.
So...what is your favorite color combination?
