This post from yesterday somehow disappeared. I found it but it had been saved as a draft, which isn’t right because it already had comments! Some of the post was missing so I’ve revamped it a bit and am reposting. Just didn’t want you to think you’re nuts or I’m nuts (oh, wait . . you already know I am!) when you see the same thing you know you saw yesterday!
Sometimes I find myself getting frustrated when trying to choose yarn colors via the internet. It would be so easy to order a kit and be done but, even with the bit of frustration, I so love choosing colors and seeing how they work together. Or, maybe I just love shopping for yarn. Maybe it’s a bit of both.
The box from ESK that arrived yesterday had a bit more Cascade 220 and I’ve been trying to mix new yarn with older yarn and come up with a combination that works for my Hue Shift Afghan. Initially I had wanted browns, greens, golds, rust tones . . kinda Texas colors. Oh, wait . . remove the green. I almost forgot where I live! This was my original plan.
I’ve played around, added more colors, taken out colors. The colors in these renditions are not the actual yarns and there were some in there that were way too blendy and in the process of trying to match colors on the graphic to colors on the screen at ESK, it just didn’t all work out like I had intended so I ordered a few more colors and even using some of the same colors in both renditions, the new one is quite different.
Because the colors aren’t showing up quite right, a closer photo seems more accurate. The first photo is the left side and the second is the right side.
I’m still thinking I need less brown/rust and a little more blue and maybe a different purple.
I’m also thinking . . it’s time to just jump in and get started. It will be fine but the longer I wait and ponder my color choices, the better then chance I don’t even get it done.
