yarn choices

Each time I think I have it figured out which colors I’d like to pair for my Neptune High knee socks, I flip flop.

Current dilemma:

Hey, you think that’s bad? I ruled out a whole chair’s worth of other color combinations earlier tonight.

Category: knitting. There is/are 4 Comments.



I think any of those would be great! I lean to the blue.teal, but that’s because I like darker, cool colours myself :)

I’m liking the first option the most – but that’s likely due to my longing for more fluorescent fall colors. Still, it’s a nice combo.

All I can do is say I would rule out tangerine and deep blue – they’re rather diametrically opposed on the color wheel and I think the pattern would be much better with matching rather than clashing colors.

So, I guess that means you have to make two pairs, one red and tangerine, and one deep blue and teal green.

@GK: I knit up a sample of the red and orange and found they were too close in tone to pop the way I wanted them to. I have to return to this project soon and knit up samples of some of the other options…
