Two More

I finally got back to working on the scarves just a bit. These take a bit more time than I had realized.  The first two were total play time so I didn't pay much attention.  The good part is that I need to be mildly distracted when I do it, so I put a comedy show on the television because laughter is good for the soul and in my case, the muse too. Thus the time is not all "work" and I don't feel bad about spending extra time on them. 


What I found is that if I am not distracted, I obsess on details/perfection and it just doesn't work for me. These are supposed to be loose casual designs. They should be soft and playful designs on the elegant silk. Or at least that is what *I* want to make out of them.  So, without further ado---here are the latest two scarves. 
The previous two that I did are in this post.  All of the scarves are 8" by 54". 

I tried to do one in just purple and green but it didn't work. The purple and green I have ended up blending into a tragic mess.  Adding some teal and a touch of yellow solved the problem. 


Oh yes, since I photographed these on a black background, I had to overlap the one on the right to show that the ends of the scarf are black also. 
Which one do you like best and why?  Your thoughts may help to inspire me on the next ones I do.

I like the one on the left because it has more details... geometric shapes at the bottom of scarf really sets it off. Hope that helps.

The random, carefree look of the purple-y pink scarf catches my eye, Gene.
Looks like you've been having lots o' fun!

I like the one on the right, more playful and abstract. It is more the colors I like though too so maybe that is part of why I like it best.

I like the shapes on the scarf on the left AND the fact that it has lots of my favorite color in it....you know....GREEN!!!

I like the right one, it has beautiful colors (to me), looks random but still balanced, and I don't care for the shapes at the bottom of the other one.

from the comments everyone likes a different one....grin.

I like the left because the design seems to take me more places. For what that's worth.

Did you give in yet on the Moose on the Porch......giggle?

Colorful and lovely! Although the one on rhe right has my favorite colors, I'm drawn to the angular design of the one on the left. Both are awesome!
