A million colors and some fun
I am so excited about this yarn! Two skeins of #39 and two skeins of #25 Lang Yarns Mille Colori Baby! Purchased online from The Yarnery in St. Paul, Minnesota. If you're not on their email list, I'd highly recommend it for the knitting inspiration. As soon as I saw their version of the ZickZack Scarf, I began the search through Ravelry projects to decide what color schemes I wanted to use.
Since I didn't plan to start the project until late August or early September, I wanted a combination of colors that reflect walking into the Lowe's Garden Center in early fall to see all the fall mums in bloom. Bright greens and oranges with shades of lavender/purple, burnt red, yellows, etc. I want purple to be an accent color, not the dominate color, and all of the colors to be very nature-like, yet bright. Colors 39 and 25 achieve this perfectly! I can't wait to get started! A special thank you to Shelly and Scott at The Yarnery who helped me via email by recommending the best colors to achieve my vision.
It was the second weekend of Charlotte Restaurant Week. This time we drove north to Mooresville, NC (a small historic town on Lake Norman) to another fabulous restaurant, the Epic Chophouse.
It was even better than the one last weekend. I could get used to this!
