Eye Candy Friday: it's been a while

While riding on the commuter rail, I placed my coat next to me, and the ball of yarn and working needles in the coat's pocket - for ease of knitting. I could not help but notice how well the yellow scarf matched my blue raincoat. And how the whole ensemble could be tied together with my no longer geeky tote.

Scarf: Linked Rib from Knitting New Scarves.

Yarn: Sundara Yarn Aran Silky Merino in Sunshine.

Raincoat: Jheri Richards Sueded Polyester Raincoat - short in length, gorgeous blue in color.

Beautiful combination!

Very springy pairing.

You are absolutely right! It is super when things fall together like that!

the color saturation is awesome. It does go perfect with the bag.

:) You are very right. Goes perfect!! Hope your having a great day!

Truly beautiful combination...that Sundara yarn looks amazing!

When I was a kid, I crocheted a pair of shorts out of those colors. I thought they were the height of fashion (I was 11).

That reminds me of the Swedish flag. :)

I love that color combo. :)

Pretty! Though I must say that I thought you meant the No Sheep For You tote!

I think I should make a non-geeky tote for myself too.

Very beautiful!!

Greetings, I found you through ravelry and stopped a while to read your blog. I noticed right away that the yellow scarf you are currently knitting on is unusual and further reading confirmed we are working on scarves from the same book. I thought yours looked like the scarf I am making (Tricorners) but see that it was not though very similar.

Did you make Tricorners by chance? I just began yesterday and got to the point past the garter stitch where I need to set up back to initial tricorner shape. Having trouble there but pressing on! I'll share a pic when complete. The book is great, isn't it?

Something about sky blue and cornflower yellow that screams it's SUMMER, beautiful

Good taste in: coat, yarn, pattern, AND book. :)

Very chic.....love the colors....congrats~!

The color combination works; I've always liked good strong blue and yellow together. I apologize in advance for this kneejerk English-Lit. reaction: things that "match" are exactly alike; things that are different but go well together are things that coordinate.
