I'm been swatching like a fiend for my planned Color Affection shawl. The shawl starts off with a solid section of the Main Color alone, then a section of MC and Contrast 1 stripes, then a section of MC, C1, and Contrast 2 stripes, and finally an edging in C2. Clearly, this will take some forethought!
Attempt 1: Main Color- Fierce Snake, Contrast 1- Nude, Contrast 2- Common Emerald Moth
Attempt 2: Main Color- Grey Scalloped Bar Butterfly, Contrast 1- Common Emerald Moth, Contrast 2- Archy and Mehatibel
This one felt better to me, but I love the grey and purply colors so much together on their own, the green felt out of place. I'm going to save the GSSB and A&M for a 2-color project where their combined awesomeness can really shine.
Here's what I have decided with on my third attempt: Main Color - Nude, Contrast 1 - Common Emerald Moth, Contrast 2 - Fierce Snake
Or should I say, I think it's groovy?
