How about orange...?
I know, I know. I have not been kind to the colour orange in the past, even stating that it is one of my least favourite colours. Then what is it that draws me towards that very colour every time I see it, especially in crochet. In fact it has become so bad that it almost feels like a physical craving.
In the end I just had to give in, and give orange a go. So yesterday saw me marching into the yarn shop, and after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing out I came with orange, red, deep purple, bright green, hot pink, turquoise and white.
Now some of the colours are "old friends" that I have used several times before, but the first three are new acquaintances. So far we are just getting to know each other, and only a few tentative squares have been crocheted.
But I am surprising myself by how much I am loving them. There is no way of knowing where all this will end (worst case scenario being in the bin!), it might become another cushion cover. Or better still, another crochet blanket.
How about you and orange... love it or hate it?
