Orange

For ages, I really didn't like the color orange. But somewhere in the last few years, I've warmed up to it, but only certain shades.

I'm a winter, so I like cool colors, like tangerine and the lighter sharper oranges. Autumny oranges are not for me.

When Hillary Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in her head to toe orange pantsuit, I thought "I have got to make something orange."

Just finished Sarah Palin give her speech at the Republican National Convention and thought "She's no Hillary Clinton." and again thought "I have got to make something orange."

This weekend Knitch is having a sale, $5 for Cascade 220. Last time I was there, I didn't see any oranges I liked, but Friday, I'm going to leave work early and scope it out again. If I don't see the color I want, I can always dye my own with Kool-aid.

I had started the Opulent Raglan from Knitscene in the Rowan Felted Tweed I got on sale at another yarn shop, but just am not excited about it.

What does excite me? A chunky-knit, Emerald sweater from Knitty for fall. Just finished one in blue for Sister, just ordered the yarn for a red one for Best Friend, it's time to make one for me. In Hillary Orange.

I prefer the salomon orange. More pink then orange, but enough there.
