It's "a lot of look"

as Tim Gunn would say.

I cast on and knit a bit of Fabulosity and it was--not fabulous. I love the green but the rest of the colors seem too dark and heavy and not matchy.

So I pulled that out and then put together another combo choice, this one with three blues and a pink:

That one seems a bit more pleasing.

Oops just went back to the stash because I recalled I have a white yarn with light pink and blue somewhere and I do and it is wound. I put them all together and it just seems right. So here it is:

Finding four complimentary colors is HARD! I have a bit of variation in  the weights of these yarns but I have faith it will work out OK. I guess we'll see, won't we?

The good thing is that I found a lot of two-color combos that will work well for patterns found in an e-book called Christmas 2018 (yes I'm a laggard).  I especially like Knit Weave and have printed that out to take to the coast.

Yesterday was busy--I had yoga in the morning, then went in to work for a bit (finals week), then Tim and I had lunch at the neighborhood breakfast place and then walked the dogs. I did some of the stack of work I have to do over finals week and spring break and worked on cleaning the house a bit. We sat outside at the end of the day as it was a lovely 75 degrees out.

I think we're headed out to the coast tomorrow afternoon, so today will be doing those last minute cleaning/packing things, getting things ready for Zach (our cat sitter), running over to the farm and then to meet my friend Lauren for a catch up before she goes to Austria. Then back to finish things up here. It's supposed to be 75 again before the temps go down back to more normal levels. I'm ready for spring!

Pretty choices (blues, pink, white) - that will be lovely. The Spring temps are wonderful (though we are chilly again today). Anxiously awaiting Spring for real!!

Sometimes you just have to knit a while to see how the colors are going to "play" together -- and sometimes it takes quite a lot of knitting before you can really tell. And you're right -- it's harder to find 4 colors that "play nice" together! That said, I like your new color combination. :-)

I think you'll be much happier with your new color combo.
We had several gorgeous spring, almost summerish days but it's back to winter at the moment. I'm not complaining though because at least the rain has stopped and we've been having mostly gorgeous blue skies.
Happy knitting!

Im glad you are able to get to your literal Happy Place soon! I find four color combos tough too.

I like the last combination you hit on the best for that Spring look you want!
Have a good day!
