I started with the variegated/striping yarn from Hobby lobby in shades of dark blue, medium blue, gray and tan, and paired it with a medium blue in a solid.
I worked up a small swatch and liked the resulting color
... so kept going and now it looks like this.
It's a basic granny square shawl that was inspired by this blog. I love the way the colors complement each other, not too light nor too dark, but a perfect denim blue. Since it is worked in two strands, it's fairly stiff and I'm hopeful that it'll soften up after laundering, and it should be really warm.
It's not quite big enough yet but I'm running out of the solid blue yarn. WalMart didn't have any so with my luck it's been discontinued, so hopefully I'll have enough to finish it off. Can't wait to wear it with my favorite blue jeans!
