I have decided to get my knitting needles back out, and join a knit-along with Judy over at Patchwork Times. Judy is knitting Dreambird, so yesterday I went over to Ravelry and bought the pattern. I wanted to do this from yarn I already have, so I dug out some Wollmeise that I've been holding onto for a while, and went hunting for something to pair it with. This is what I found. I thought it might work, but after I wound it in to a ball, I see there is more brown and less yellow than I thought.
Then this morning I had an inspiration - silver would be beautiful with this yarn. So I headed out to a yarn shop at noon to find some. Apparently, silver is not a popular yarn choice. But I did find something that I think will work nicely, and I do prefer it over the brown. So, yarn chosen. Cast on day is Sunday, so now I wait.
