Crochet Madness

Sometimes I get a crazy idea to go to one of the big box stores and buy yarn for a crochet project. I say crazy, because I have plenty of yarn. I don't need to buy any more.
I discovered that the local A.C. Moore had Lion Brand Mandala yarn on sale: 3 cakes for $10. I couldn't resist. I bought more than a couple colors. 
What was I going to make with those cakes? Well, a shawl, or six.
I have been meaning to try a pattern on Ravelry called Cakes Two to Tango. Two contrasting, self-striping yarns come together to make a big impact.
I'm not sure my first pairing was perfect, but it still packs a punch.
I'm using the colors Fairy (pink on the right) and Serpent (yellow on the left). I think the two cakes will make a generous size triangle shawl. I really like this project and I'm sure I'll be making more and not just because I still have yarn. Maybe I should try this pattern as a poncho!
