Some color combinations always look good together, no matter the design. Others, you have to really search for the right project. Sky blue and orange are one of those finicky combinations.

I realize it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I am so pleased with how my Daybreak shawl turned out. I haven’t been this happy with a finished object in a long time. The colors are so fun and happy to me. It reminds me of summertime.

The yarn is Sundara sock in Robin’s Egg and Marigold. I used size 3 needles, and made the medium version.

For as far back as I can remember I’ve been attracted to stripes, so don’t be surprised to see another one of these on the needles in the near future. I feel like I need a pink and brown version too!

    Oh, that’s so pretty. Love the colors!
    Our local high school’s colors are orange & blue, and I always thought it was kind of a ‘difficult’ color combination (but aren’t all high school colors when you think about it
    ;-)?). Anyway, you did a perfect job of combining the two — lovely!
