I'm not usually a band wagon knitter. I've never made a Clapotis, nor have I made Monkey Socks. But this. This I couldn't resist. Colour Affection.
The colours are more like the bottom picture, but the shine is more like the top picture. Because I'm using silk. 100%, gloriously, silky, heavyweight delicious silk. I bought three colours of this silk in Kitchener, planning on a cardigan at one time, but then, it just sort of worked out for this. I have a mossy green, a muted pumpkin orange and a lovely, grounded taupe.
So I've jumped on the Colour Affection bandwagon, and I'm pretty happy I have.
