In my short time, I have knitted in several different colors....it depends on the person for whom I am knitting.

But, I find myself gravitating toward rich, saturated colors of whatever tone. For myself, I am going to shy away from pastels...I want people to NOTICE my knitting!

I have been dreaming of a deep periwinkle for my first sweater....or maybe a deep emerald green....or a rich burnt orange....or maybe burgundy...or maybe................

oo KK brown sheep has a periwinkle color in lamb's pride that i LOVE. here is a link to a color list, but thecolors look kind of dark on my monitor This one is better but you really have to see it IRL

I tend to stick to the pink-purple-blue part of the color wheel, but I try to throw in come accent colors too; I just boought yarn for a felted bag in varying blue colors, but I'm going to add an orange in there too.

I love the effect I get when I dye my yarn in Kool aid. sometime I use a yarn that is only part wol so I get this verigated/heathery thing going. Then sometimes the color fades in and out and if I switch colors right then, they blend together. I'm really diggin colors of the sunset right now on top of a layer of purplish grey.

Nicoley, your kitty looks like he's grooving with that hat on. Is that a smile on his face?

I like deep roses, dark greens, browns, and reds for myself. The girls like brighter stuff. When school's out, I'm going to design a sundress for my little one. The LYS has some of the most beautiful candy colored stuff. But mostly I buy yarn by feel, the only exception to that is the Manos del Uruguay, which is a bit stiff at the moment. I hope it softens a little after I clean it. Plus it smells bad. If that doesn't go away, this was a hugely expensive mistake.

i think its more a look of terror and regret for comeing so close to me when i finished her har lol she didnt like the hat lol

ive seen a few rose colors that i was tempted to buy they are very pretty!

if your yarn is still hard and smelly you can always ebay it and try and get some of your money back... how does it smell?

Sorry OT...

OMGGGG I love Michael Bublè too!! He's like Sinatra with more pop and without the fogeyness! uh, and he's hot, duh. Feelin Good is my new favorite song, but I like the old classics too.

Uhm... yarn, needles, knitting, yadda yadda...

Actually, I got some stinky yarn from someone on ebay, and I sprayed it with Fabreeze and it worked great; but that might not work on all yarns (and might be bad, who knows?)
