Color uncertainty

feather and fan

I purchased this yarn over the weekend and thought it would be very springy and Easter-y. Indeed, it is. However, I’m also thinking it may be a bit too …kid-y? …bright? …obnoxious? Maybe it’s just not suited for the feather and fan scarf I have started. Colors this loud might be best as socks?

    I do like the colors, but I think you are correct–they aren’t really suited for a feather and fan scarf. The yarn would be stunning as something else, I’m sure!

    I think those are nice colours but, like Cotton Deer, I think you might be right in that they are a little bright for a scarf. Socks seem like they could look nice in it (especially since it’s variegated) or perhaps gloves?

    Unfortunately, I ahve to agree with the other two commenters–it might be better as socks.

    There’s also the option of plying it with a complementary colorway, resulting in a more mottled or muted effect. That’s something that I’ve been doing a lot of lately with my handspun. (wanna come learn how to spin, eh?)
