Thursday, August 9, 2007

it’s been raining for days here and I’m a little Blue…

Add to that humidity so thick you feel like a ghost suspended in the air and it’s not wonder that fog fills the brain.

I can’t make up my mind.


Blue Nr. 1


Blue Nr. 2

Blue Nr. 1: it’s the one that looks GOOD on all the gentlemen you work with. They often substitute this color for the insipid pervasive White Collar in the workplace. I think it’s one of the signature Late 20th Century Office Rebellions (“get off my back white shirt monkey!”).

Blue Nr. 2: this is another of my favorites, Bijou Blue. It is very flattering on ze Ladies, (which, but of course, includes moi).

I am poised to cast-on and can’t move another inch without your help — Nr. 1 or Nr. 2 on the needle?

    Blue Nr. 1 looks like what my mother used to call “menopause blue” :o)

  2. Before committing I’d like to know what you’re thinking of knitting!!

    Context is everything.

    I guess it depends what you’re casting on.
    A sweater for yourself? Blue Nr.2.
    A fun accessory? Blue Nr.1.

    I placed my vote…. it’s #2 ALL THE WAY… but what are you casting on?

  5. Bonne Marie says:

    You’re right! It DOES make a big difference WHAT the item is…

    These yarns are destined to be worn as a garment, not an accessory. ;p

  6. Jamie says:

    Go with Blue 1, it looks like the electric blue that’s THE color of the season.

  7. Becky says:

    I voted! Please, oh please let it be number 2 :-)

  8. beth says:

    That #1 blue seems too intense for the summer heat while the #2 blue is like a refreshing dip in the pool.

    With your coloring, the second blue is better, I think.
