Colors Haunt Me
Instead of “colors haunt me,” it’s really more like I dream of colors. But sometimes those colors aren’t my favorite combinations. Yet, the combinations persist somehow.
Recent Example of How Colors Haunt Me
I mentioned a number of times how the recent cowl I finished weren’t in my favorite colors.
I’m not a huge fan of orange, especially with brown and yellow. Even the light aqua highlights in this yarn didn’t help make this colorway appealing to me. Then someone pointed out how prevalent these unappealing colorways were in my daily knitting.
This is a typical morning for me.
Notice anything familiar about the afghan on the back of that couch?
Even in the random hanks of fingering weight yarn in the feature photo, there are WAY too many yarns with orange, brown and yellow in them. Who bought those yarns?!?!
Suffice it to say, I’ve kept away from those colors in my most recent WsIP.
I decided to build up craft show inventory for West Coast Watchcaps. In case I ever get to be among the public again.
Ahhhh…Noro colors…I love how they mix unusual colors in a very appealing way.
I finished two hats and started a third.
It’s strange and wonderful how my hands enjoy knitting these colors. But I still can’t make a hat look good modeling it myself.
I will try and bang out a dozen or so hats. I’m not sure how many I currently have in inventory. But I sell quite a few of these simple hats, so I can never have too many.
