« Red Scarf | Main | Swing Jacket Monday »

April 01, 2006



I beg of you, please PLEASE don't knit this in orange, not for yourself! You don't need me to tell you it would look wonderful in any of the blue spectrum shades. (Although the orange would look great on Laura or Julia.) The design is nice (a tad too modern for Moi), but I prefer the first one...and that soft smoky orange might work for you. It would be heavenly in lavender or pale smoky green or grey, but that's so cowardly of me to suggest, isn't it? when we know they always look great on you. Hee. I don't think the first design would work in a darker, heavier color...it would 'hang' too much, drag down, you know.

Thus spake the non-knitter. "I am one of those people who is happy to wear cotton, but has no idea how it works"--Edmund Blackadder, ca. 1815.

(In a bizarrely coincidental aside, I wanted to check the Prince Regent's dates, so I went to Wikipedia just now, where the featured article is on George IV!!!)


I earmarked those two designs as well. I did want to see someone else's Sunrise Jacket first - just in case. Project Spectrum would be too much pressure for me and this month?: Orange make me look like death on a cracker.
