Inspiring as well as hilarious ...

One thing that has repeatedly caught my eye while watching "Vicious" is an outfit that Ian McKellen has worn in a couple of episodes ... a violet waistcoat over a vivid blue shirt. He wears that same waistcoat over other shirts and that same shirt with other waistcoats and/or jackets and those colour combos are also good but when the two garments are together they glow!

And that glow got me thinking that these two yarns, which I hadn't even thought of pairing, would go very well together: Jitterbug in "Velvet Plum" and "Lapis". The "Plum" is darker/deeper than the vest but the "Lapis" is not only a near perfect match to the blue shirt, those darker streaks in it are the "Plum" shade. Now all I need to do is finish up some of my current projects plus take a browse through my collection of two-colour shawl patterns. :-)
