Oh my gosh! Trying to choose the perfect yarn for the Stone Crop Cardi

I thought I had this project colors in the hole.  I was so happy with the first colors I picked for this Stonecrop Cardi.

My main color of choice is my very own Spicy colorway.  I am going out of my comfort zone on this one.  It's my effort to introduce various colors into my wardrobe instead of my go- greens and blues. So, I felt that  almost any variegated color I chose would show up.

Nope it didn't.

The first color I chose made my combo look  like Valentines Day.  Well, at least that is what my son thought.  I liked it though, but I kept shopping. 


I went onto a new colorway that I love called Uptown.  It has a rustic vibe on an uptown scale. It went so nice with the red, but when I knit up this combo the Uptown blended in too much.

Back to the Valentine's vibe I went.  I knit up a couple of rows thinking it would pop, but Birthday blended right in with the red.  What a bummer.

Ugh!  I had to find my drawing board again. I literally  put my project in time out because I was at a complete stop in my color choices. It was also 8 o'clock at night and I wanted to go to bed.  

Luckily I have another  Stonecrop Cardi going at the same time.  There is a reason to my madness at this level. 

 I started working on another Stonecrop Cardi in DK weight.  I even had a bit of trouble starting this cardigan because it was in DK weight and not sock weight (what it's done in originally)  I was tired of working in sock.

Okay!  I have found my  3rd and final color and I'm sticking with it.  It is in my new colorway Clarity.  I hope it pops it bit better than my other choices.  We will see. 

I am not changing it after this. lol!

Happy Yarning,
