color blindness

Genius s-i-l and I have started a killer knitting project.  It's a stunning two-color alpaca blanket.  Words do not do it justice.


Fabulous, right?

I've never done colorwork, and s-i-l's never done knitting, but little things like that are not going to stand between us and this blanket of deliciousness.

Yesterday we got the yarn, we threw on some Desperate Housewives, and we plunged in.

The actual knitting isn't that bad.  In fact, it's making me feel quite smug to blithely knit away with TWO COLORS ! in my hands.  (Of course, that's due far more to the brilliant Mason-Dixon girls than to my native intelligence.)  

But here's the problem:

Dear readers, is it too green? Is it reminiscent of putrid bodily effluvia?  Is it, worse, BORING?

Please advise.



  1. I like green these days! But my favorite two colors right now are red and light blue like in the first picture. I bought a great notebook with those colors and I love them. I don't know if this opinion is helpful, but I thought I would share.

  2. You know, the red and blue really is lovely. I thought it was a bit too wild at first, but it's growing on me.

    Yarn store, here I come!

  3. I totally agree. Green is a big color now, but blue is an always color. just my thoughts...
    Laura, you ooze with talent. you can do EVERYTHING!

  4. Ok, I'm embarrassed to say it, but I want to you to show me how to knit so I can decide if I'm too lazy.
