After much gazing, mostly on Friday night, I decided this scarf will be in the olive green and pale gray purple. It quietens the warps and somehow make the yellows and greens in the warp look harmonious with the purples and pinks. And the olive green weft in particular gives the cloth that sheen, though it looks dead flat in this picture.
Meanwhile, yesterday, the unbelievable happened, and our study bookshelf is now cleaned up. And the most surprising thing was, it took us only around 4 hours. We were ruthless in culling, and not as thorough in the cleaning of the shelves and the walls, but it's done and we even have gaps, and you can't believe what serenity it brings to me. We even had time time to sort through our map collection, (remember those? I used to be a big collector up until our 2003 trip to Scotland and Ireland; since then, of course, it's been GoogleMaps to wherever we go,) had time to put addition to my postcard collection into the plastic sleeve folder, and even mended a pair of pants! My stash room bookshelf has no space horizontal or vertical, but that's been culled several times in the last two and a half years and I don't foresee any more culling, or much addition in the near future.
