So, yeah, I'm procrastinating.
And I decided to use up some of the odds and ends of left over worsted weight wool I had laying around.
I started out with the idea of just knitting a plain striped scarf. I was going to knit simply knit with one color until it ran out then add on the next. Sort of Dr. Who scarf style. But after taking a closer look at the odds and ends of yarns I have on hand, I decided that wasn't going to look so great. The majority of yarn in my odds & ends pile are either too similar in color or they clash with each other way to much to simply knit wide stripes with them. So, I decided, in an effort to confuse the eye and tame the clashing colors a bit, I'd knit three color stripes on the diagonal.
So far, I think it's working.
