I think Heather said it best when she said "nothing seems to inspire project monogamy like explicitly stating that I plan on making it a long term work-in-progress."
That's how I feel about my Chevron Scarf. Given that the pattern takes the same amount of yarn as two pairs of socks, I had fully intended to knit this slowly over the next few months so that it would be done in time for spring. So much for that. Instead it's literally all I've worked on for the past week. At least that means I'll be ready when spring does come.
This is the latest section I knit:
It looks a little different than the last picture I showed you, right?
This is the yarn I'm using:
Koigu KPPPM in P511L on the left and P210 in the centre and right.
These colours didn't look too different in the skein so I assumed that they would work out when knit up, however there is a marked difference once it's combined with the red yarn.
You can sort of see the difference here (it's clearer in person):
I'm now down the darker yarn and ready to go back to the lighter one. My theory is that it will all blend together once it's worn and laypeople won't be able to notice a difference. And I'll have the darker section against my neck so I won't be able to see the difference myself :)
ETA: Thanks for the feedback, ladies. I'm glad it's all in my head :)
