You all gave such wonderful advice about colors! Thank you so much!
I have narrowed my choices down to six finalists! True, some of my
choices weren't among the original combinations but were colors that came
together while I was helping in store customers select colors. And these will
actually go with my wardrobe better. Working here is really hard
sometimes! Too many ideas, not enough time to do everything I have ideas to do!
Because I can't really choose I've decided to go with all six combinations. One
or two will become Ripple Effect shawls (by Unraveled Designs) while the remainder will be stashed for
other multicolored shawls! I've recently become enamored with Brian Smith's designs
(aka ravelryguy) and I have lots of Romi Hill's patterns in my queue so I have
no end of ideas of what to do with all these colors. Not to mention if I
was left on a desert island and could only choose one yarn brand it would be
The six finalists starting on upper row left to right:

Leaf, Plaid Blanket, & Glazed Pecan
Antler, Whitewash, & Denim
Lower row left to right:
Nectar, Mimosa, & Moorland
Seasalt, Parchment, & Alabaster

I think the last, Nutmeg, Turtle & Mineral, will be the first Ripple Effect
shawl I start on.
