I’m failing at choosing colors. If you remember, yesterday I mentioned I was doing a test knit of a hat, and I’d chosen these two colors (they’d be held together throughout).
They were farther apart in color than I thought when I ordered them, or something, because when I started knitting with them, I didn’t like it. Fortunately I also made a mistake in the pattern so I had a good reason to frog and start over. But with what? I needed two colors closer to each other so the disparity wouldn’t be so striking. Next I tried these two.
I know, I haven’t knit enough to see it well. But I’ll tell you: it’s just okay. I’m not crazy about it. It would be cute for a little girl, so I might do the child size instead of the adult size. The pattern will be fun, though, as soon as I can get the color situation straightened out!
And I have to thank all of you for the good juju yesterday: the interview went great! I’m optimistic, but trying not to get my hopes *too* high.
Oh man!! I feel your pain! I hate my colour choices until the hat is about 60 % done. I still love the first colour combo you choose but, I think either will look amazing! Keep calm and knit on!!
You think it’s okay? Maybe I’ll try again with those. The nice thing is that it knits up fast, so it’s not a big deal to frog & start over!
Totally!! I think it will look great 🙂
I always agonize over colors too. I did really like the first choice. Very pretty!
Thanks, I’m giving it another try!
I like the first color choices too. I think the other two colors will look like the same yarn from a distance.
Okay, we’ll see how it looks! I’m about halfway through now.
OMG! I have two skeins of DMC natura in those colors and I felt the same way about them together when I got them home from the store. I think the store lighting wasn’t good enough for me to choose correctly. Pretty soon they’ll be celebrating their first anniversary of getting stashed.
It’s really not fair when the yarn doesn’t behave the right way!
