Red and green brocade??

Well, most folks seem to think that I should spin the green to match the red. I now find myself wondering if they would pair well in a project (without making me look like a giant Christmas tree ornament, that is). One thing that comes to mind is Brocade, which I adore, from Rowan 38. Would red and green brocade just be too obnoxious for words?? Or just obnoxious enough to be really, really fun? I had planned to do it in red and purple shetland, which would also be obnoxious, but more richly and subtly so. Or so I keep telling myself, anyway. Of course, I could always go with the festive theme and knit very traditional Christmas stockings. That's kindof tempting...

Brocade would be fantastic, I've often lusted after that pattern, it is so elegant and distinctive. I think those colours could work well.

Thanks for your lovely comments about Birch, I think the colour will suit my friend well, can't wait to see it on her tomorrow.

You'll have to show us the green. I imagine it's a dark evergreen sort of colour, and not a perky light colour? I think it'd work!
