More Yarn Colour Conundrums

The Cascade 220 arrived for my BTSV and I didn't like it. I mean it's a lovely colour, but not to encase my torso in, if you know what I mean. So it has been relegated to becoming a bag or some other accessory and I ordered some othere 220, this time, Heathers to become the Vest. I love it. I shall be casting on for it tonight as well as trying for the umpteenth time to get gauge for a cloche hat I'm knitting for Mary. It's soooo cool.

Here's the blue I decided against..

see, it's very blue.

And here's the lovely green Heather

Much nicer.

Right, off to run with wolves, oops, I mean my dog!

love that green colour of cascade. Goes with so much, brown and I've even paired it with 2 shades of pink in a striped bag (Noni bag in my projects on ravelry).

I prefer the green, but the blue is nice. Buying online is tricky with colours isn't it.

Both are beautiful, but I'm really partial to greens!

I love both colours but agree that we need to go with what feels comfy and right for the project. The green will look stunning as a BTSV (I have that one on my to-do list too)
