Introducing Harry To Sally

Last night I stumbled across some cone yarn that I had long since forgotten in my stash. Problem was, each cone contained laceweight yarns which when knitted single ply would have made pretty airy socks. The yarn colors: a radioactive neon green and a shiny purple. So I considered my options - apart, horrible! But together, this just might work!

I call my radioactive neon green yarn Harry, a bright, magnetic, fuzzy around the edges yarn with a lot of potential, but not so much on its own. Sally on the other hand is a beautiful purple yarn, too thin for anything but lace but simple and shiny and eager to be something.

I introduced the pair last night with fabulous results. I think this is the start of something big.

Pretty combination. Much like Lime and Violet from the limenviolet podcast.

That's awesome! Did you get the stripes because of the yarn twisting around each other or did you do that somehow yourself?

Thanks Jessica :) I let the yarns twist freely to create random patterns. I kinda wish I had a Legare 47 six yarn mast now... it would be interesting to work with more than two yarn colors/textures. Although I can only imaging what jams would be like using so many yarns *ugh*.
