I've been itching to try some more houndstooth lately and I finally did with Scarf 29. I used my favorite baby yarn - a cotton/acrylic blend that's thick and squishy and super soft. The yellow and white don't provide much contrast, so the pattern doesn't jump out at you - it reads more as a subtle texture, which I like. It takes two colors that could feel flat and brings them to life. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
It doesn't get dark and cold here like it does up north, but having lived in Massachusetts I know how depressing it can be in the winter. I like to think of Scarf 29 as a little ray of sunshine to wrap around you to keep the blahs at bay.
Scarf 29 is for sale in my etsy shop.
