Huh? October 15, 2007

Filed under: Blankets,Friends — katy @ 3:58 pm

More_throws_1 So I have decided that I want to knit a throw for my friends Brian and Joel.  I thought Berroco’s Peruvia would be a nice substitution for Manos and promptly emailed Brian this morning with requests for colors.  Here is his repsonse: 

We are very earthy-toned at the moment, bleached wood and dusty dirt
and powdery sand and early buds and new stems and young branches and late spring leaves; all faded and soft and cosy wool.

                                   Does that help at all?

I don’t know.  Do you think that helps?  Oh, and he only wants me to use three colors.

    It sounds a bit like the colors of the painted desert. 😉

    Okay, so how much am I procrastinating doing anything in my life? Here’s how much–I picked out 3 sets of colors…

    darker, more fall:
    aquamarina, dragon, avocado, naranja, chipotle

    prairie dog, naranja, avocado, maiz, marron

    marron, travertine, naranja, maiz, avocado

    And please, feel free to ignore all my comments. I obviously didn’t want to do the dishes! ;-p

    3 colors, huh? How dare he. Okay, you may have sensed a theme with the last one. Naranja and avocado look particularly well together I think and satisfy the earthy/springy request. Then, I’d go with either travertine or chipotle. I suppose one could go with maiz but that just feels too light.

    (HA! That’ll show him!!! He can’t fool me. Or make me do the dishes!)

    Oh yeah, I’d find that totally helpful. Not. Good luck with that! 🙂

    Actually, I think he’s begging for some of the new organic yarns – that descriptions almost describes the colourway in organic yarns to a T. Good luck.

    It’s helpful, go for a darker hued brown, a lighter brown and a dark green.
