I love those colors together! It is amazing to me how everyone is putting different colorways together and ending up with unique scarves!

[and I think this may be what I need to do with the koigu I have that I simply do not like as a sock... now to find something in stash that will work with it. :) You inspire me! :) I do so love f+f. ]

Beautiful color choices! I'm seeing this scarf all over the blogosphere. I've been trying to resist, but I think resistance may be futile. Glad you got to Stitches West! It was a little too far for me to go this past weekend.

A beautiful combo, and proof that Stitches is too much for me to take in- I didn't take in the Blue Moon booth- sensory overload had already set in. Or as I overheard one shopper say to her friend, "I've never seen so much varigated yarn in my life."

Those colors are look amazing together! I just finished my version of the scarf and I am in love. It is such a fun, but easy, pattern to knit up. Good luck with yours!

Those colorways are very nicely working together, and make for something quite different from what they look and feel like separately. Once again a lovely swatch!

I was at Stitches West too! I also bought some Blue Moon sock yarn along with LOTS of other yarnalicious goodies! LOVE your use of the sock yarn in a ripple pattern!

I'm waiting for my Blue Moon sock yarn to arrive so I can start my Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts! Love your color combo.

OOooh, I think some of those souvenir and leftover skeins now have a new purpose in life.
