For the Love of Stripes

From my very first look at Tanis Gray’s Constitution Hall Scarf, I knew I wanted to knit it in and just what yarn I wanted to use. Once a season I go a little bright with my color choices. Mostly it tends to be in the red/orange family, this fall was destined to be hottest pink. Think fluorescent highlighter pink. Think stop ’em dead in their tracks pink. Okay and retina searing.

My Constitution Hall Scarf is knit in Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend in Shocking and Dove. I think adding the gray to the mix brings the pink down a bit and keeps it fun rather than overwhelming.

This project is fantastic football watching knitting. Lots of garter to chug away on and then the fun addition of the lace panel on the one side. It’s just the right touch to add femininity to the sporty stripes.

Of course you don’t need to be quite as over-the-top with your color choices! We just received a shipment of Silk Blend and all the luscious colors are back in stock. What combination strikes your fancy?
