A confession … I’m not very good with color. I’m a “plain jane” knitter. If it’s not a single color, I tend to choose 3 shades of blue to be safe.
With that being said, our most recent pillow project (Make it Your Way Diagonal Pillow) cried for some color. I went to my stash and found a few cones of Yeoman Tibet. But what colors worked?
Many years ago, at a seminar, I remember the demonstrator (I think it was Michael Becker) suggested the following method to choose colors.
|Yeoman Tibet – 3 ply – Wool, Silk and Nylon
|Playing it safe …. BORING!|
|Add the rust color …. getting interesting….|
|Oops … the lilac just doesn’t do it!|
|Hmmmm …. looking good!|
Random 4 row stripes …. so many possibilities!
