And little bit of knitting.

I tried.  I really tried to get through the lace.  My brain just did not want to cooperate.  I'm going to have to work a sample of it up for practice.   Loft is such a soft thing that I worry about ruining it if I have to rip back too much.  

I took another bag of stuff I took out ages ago to knit.  I found 2 balls of Silk Dream cuddled next to some Manos Silk Blend last time I did a serious dig through the scarf yarn box.  They were meant to be together.  The rich burgundy gloss of Silk Dream and the rose grape burgundy of the Silk Blend might not be everybody's idea of perfect, but it works for me.
Insert photo here.  (Pretend you see it for a bit.  Will fix later)

Yup.  Here in my mono colored world, this works.  I took. Color theory class at the yarn stores a while ago.  I always thought I had a pretty good sense of what works and I do so long as it is monochromatic.  Colours were hard.  

I suspect it is a thing you get better at with practice. Down the road perhaps again.  For right now, I need things that just keep my mind busy without pushing it too hard.

I also need to knit and this latest little thing is just about right.

Edited to add:. I did not even try to do that title thing. Seriously thought it was an original title.  Haha.  But it works.

I prefer monochromatic colour schemes. They appeal to my colour senses in a more pleasing way than the multi coloured look.
