I've gotten a lot of ideas on what works and what doesn't in the DNA scarf by googling and google imaging. I got the idea it might be okay to go to darker colors through a successful forest green scarf. I thought I might be able to reconcile my previously inconpatible loves, dark fibers and cables. Faced with the choice between charcoal and bilberry (dark blue) in the silky wool, I was not brave enough and went with the dark blue... guess I should have tried the black. Sorry, C.!
