But there is nothing boring about these colors!:
I made the Taffy Pull Scarf, which is a new, free pattern to promote Debbie Stoller's Stitch Nation yarn. I used Stitch Nation Bamboo Ewe yarn.
I got the colors wrong to begin with - the red color and pink are fine, but the blue and teal are not - in the original pattern, they're purple and green!
And then I just ended up finishing the scarf when I felt like it. Which was soon. :) I think I got the "spirit" of the pattern right :)
