Gold

Golden knits

So, I'm kind of confused. All my life I went about my business thinking that my favorite colour was blue and pretty high up on my list of least favorite colours was yellow. I don't hate yellow, I love how it looks paired with blue! But it's definitely not a colour that I'm drawn to or typically chose for myself. So how have I managed to amass such a collection of knits done in Gold? Gold is in the yellow family right? And I love it. I would even say that I'm drawn to it. When selecting a colourway for a new project Gold often ends up right at the top of my list of good options... I think it all started last fall when I bought a new pair of shoes, one thing led to another and the next thing I knew, I was a yellow person!

  1. Welcome to the warm side of life, Tanis! Next thing you know, I'll start gravitating towards purples and blues and then we know that something went wonky with the world!

  2. Well how could you NOT love this colour, it's perfect! These knits make me want to order all your stock of "Gold" immediately!

  3. May it's just this group of knits, but suddenly I am drawn to yellow, too. And I'm with you, I've never been a huge yellow fan, mainly because it looks horrible on me, though.

  4. If there's a yellow in a bunch of yarn my eyes usually zero in on it first. I don't know what it is about that colour but it just seems to draw you in.
    Adore those shoes too!

  5. Gold is such a great shade of yellow, I'm not surprised! I'm not even a yellow person, but I find Gold hard to resist. Plus, it's a great hit of colour to contrast against so many others!

  6. Could gold be the new black (or blue?). I usually avoid straight-up yellow, too, but I am always drawn to honey or amber or butterscotch which I think are closer to the shade of your gorgeous knits.

  7. How fun to find a new found love for a color. I've recently fell in love with some colors that I never really loved, or noticed, as much before-- blue-greens and green-ish blues... loving aqua, turquoise, and emerald green colors lately.
    I love gold, especially in the fall and paired with other jewel tones. And really love sunshine-y yellows in the summer, it's just so fresh and cheery :)

  8. It's a beautiful gold. Mix in a little grey as well and you'll have my fav colour palette right now.
