What is it about orange?


I'm not sure why I'm so drawn to citrusy colors lately, but I'm crazy about this Fleece Artist (Autumn). No pooling, no striping, just a subtle play of pretty colors. Yay!

Soon it'll be time to cast on some socks for someone else; on my list I've got my mother-in-law, Zeliha Abla #1, and Zeliha Abla #2 (abla means older sister, a common form of address for women older than you, but not so much older you can call them "auntie"). Zeliha Abla #1 is probably going to come first, just because I know which yarn I'm going to use for her:



Her kids say she likes blue, on the lighter side. I think it's going to be perfect...inshallah!

Arggh! You are posting faster than I can respond! But, not normally an orange girl, I have to say the ones you have been using recently are just beautiful. How do you do it?! Where do you find them?! :)

Those are both gorgeous. I'm normally a blue/purple person, but I definitely see the appeal of the organge. It's very uplifting, especially as the days get darker!

I'm not an orange girl, and I've been liking it too lately. I love your orange choices! :)

I have been having orange attraction lately also! I don't know what it is...maybe I am just longing for fall!

Great color choices and I too am starting to look at oranges in a new way.
If you check my blog you'll see a long awaited item.
