Pink Sprinkles

I bought a fair amount of yarn during the recent L.A. County Yarn Crawl. I have projects in mind for most of the yarn. Just before I went on the 2018 Yarn Crawl, I looked over my yarn stash and discovered that I had two skeins of sprinkled pink yarn from last year. One skein was purchased at Twist, Yarns of Intrigue in 2017, Twist Confetti Sock Yarn, hand-dyed by the owner of Twist, Cathy.

The other skein was purchased at the Fiber Fiesta in Albuquerque from the Zia Woolz-Sandia booth, hand-dyed by Dagmar. The name of this yarn is "Bee Keeper in Love." Whatever.

Both yarns are predominantly pink with sprinkles of other colors. The Sandia yarn has a bit of yellow (bees) in it. The Twist yarn is REALLY peppermint pink. I thought that the yarns were close enough in color to work together.
Crocheted Grid Design

I decided to crochet a generous L-shaped scarf in my favorite grid pattern. I started with the Sandia. When I ran out of the 434 yards, I attached the Twist Confetti yarn to one edge of my grid and continued making the L-shape.

The confetti skein is only 380 yards, but this side of the L-shape requires less yardage. Yes, the two colors are slightly different, but I don't mind the vague difference. This should shape up into a very useful, bright accent piece!
THEN, I can get started using my 2018 yarn!
