Leah commented that I really like blue. Whenever I look at my stash, I get a little amazed that I have such a limited color pallette: so much blue! A little red! A little purple and pink! But mostly blue!
If you would look in my closet, though, you'd see a sea of black bottoms, a bunch of black tops, some white shirts, and here and there some color in a hand knit. However, my sweater stash yarn is blue, grey, off white, black, and maybe tan to perk it all up.
So I was surprised when my former student Kati stopped by with this beautiful bouquet of flowers and I thought "those colors look great together! They would make a good yarn."
And then I remembered this yarn that had just arrived. This is Dashing Dachs and part of the Woolgirl sock yarn club. The yarn itself is great and the sock yarn package was filled with delights. When I saw the yarn my first reaction was 'ooh, I like that" and then the SENSIBLE Kim said "but those aren't 'my colors'."
