Did I Ever Mention.....
First, here are the two hats that I knit to go along with the scarves that Frances crocheted. Frances has been coming to the Monday afternoon knit & crochet classes this summer and she's finished, I believe, five afghans already! One of the scarves she crocheted was this color purple worsted held together with a sport weight variegated in purple, magenta, green & turquoise. It made a beautiful scarf and the plain hat will go with it so as not to draw attention from the colors in the scarf. The second scarf was plain purple so I added a bit of a pattern to the hat.
These next three photos are of the hat & scarf sets I've been working on. The blue & brown sets both use the same variegated for "window" part of the window pane hats and for the 36 rows at each end of the scarf. I like the way that they came out looking so different.
The scarf is started that will go with this hat and I brought home skeins of variegated & solid colors to make up more combinations. Besides the enjoyment I get from just the knitting process, it's fun to play with the colors to make each set individual.
