LMKG Chevron Scarf?

I just can not decide what to do with this thing! I started using Claudia's Purple Midnight and Passion Fruit. I like the two together, but I can't decide if I like the two together for the Chevron Scarf. Purple Midnight is a dark royal blue with some rich purple and a paprika-like red. It also has some mauve and tan. The Passion Fruit has the same paprika red and mauve and tan. It also has a lavender that is the paler version of the purple in the Purple Midnight. I dunno - I am still deciding whether or not to frog this thing. I am so enjoying the simple feather and fan stitch, but I do need to go back and allow some easing on the right-hand side (I keep tightening it too much). Updates will follow on the fate of the Purple Midnight Passion Fruit Chevron Scarf. ;) I am also awaiting an order on Claudia's Sea Dreams colorway. I will be using that with her Bootcamp colorway once the Sea Dreams comes in. I love that combination because it is very unexpected. As you can tell by the name, Bootcamp is sort of military-like colors: army green, brown, and a pale aqua! Yes, aqua. The Sea Dreams is mostly the aqua with other pale, soft colors. I think that they will be fun together!

What size needle are you using? Do you think you'd like it more if it was opened up a bit more (if you knit it on larger needles)? I think it's pretty, but part of the charm of this project (for me) was the ohwhat'sgoingtohappennext factor. Are you getting that?

Yeah, I'm getting it a little bit, but I feel like the colors are a bit funky. I keep thinking about what I (or someone else) could wear with it, which is silly. I am using size 5's, but I do tend to knit a little more loose than I should (i.e. I usually need to go down a size from what is recommended). Hmmm... good things to think about, though.

i like the combo - it seems to work really well. but if it doesn't jump out at you then maybe switch it up. my first one is so bright i am not sure what i will pair it with, but i still love it and know it will get worn!

I think the colors blend enough and contrast each other enough to go together...if that makes any sense at all!
