Home on the Range Mystery
June 06, 2013
It's been quite a while since I've taken on a knit of mystery, so when Kirsten of Through the Loops announced her new Mystery Shawl 2013, I took the leap. The first step of joining was to choose colors with a guidance from the pattern (and in the TTL Mystery thread on Ravlery).
My first thought was Kim's new summer colors of Suede and Urban Cowboy, but I needed a third, brighter color to compliment the other two. Kim suggested Blue Moon and it's the perfect color. (This is where you look away if you want it to remain a mystery.)
May I introduce to you the one and only "Blue Moon over the Urban Cowboy riding the Suede range".Yeehaw!
I love it - the color combination is great and the pattern is looking terrific so far. Can't wait to see what comes next!

Oh, that is going to be just wonderful! I love that color combo -- and I'm such a sucker for stripes! :-)

that's a great color combination! really pops the stripes and the texture (of course I have a feeling just about any three skeins from Kim would be gorgeous). I'm enjoying watching along on the spoiler thread.
