When I was 13, my favorite color was yellow. I didn't wear much of it, but I decorated my room with it, and tended to choose yellow things. By the time I was 15, black starting coming to the forefront, and yellow was forgotten. I think I may be possessed by my 13 year-old self.


Exhibit A: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in two shades of yellow


Exhibit B: Sugar and Creme Cotton in a yellow and a yellow/white mix


Exhibit C: Malabrigo wool & angora, purchased today for a cheery winter hat/mitten set

Now I just need to go get myself a pair of Tretorns and a perm, and she'll be truly happy. (Did I mention the walls in my apartment are yellow?)

Loving the yellow. Have you knit with the Malabrigo before? I was wondering what it was like to work with.

Wanted to let you know, I cast on 42 stitches for the Noro scarf and did the 2x2 rib. I usually hate ribbing but I wanted to get ready to cast on for the Coral Crossing the fall IK. That's a whole lot of ribbing!

Tretorns! I haven't thought of them in years. Do let us know how the Malabrigo works out; I have 2 hanks of it that are destined to become... something.

I have to admit that I don't like to wear yellow only because of my skin tone, but I LOVE the yellows you've chosen. Heck, I'd wear it. (And I do like yellow - most of my apartment has yellow walls!)
