Red or Brown? ~

carine-red.jpg     or    brown.jpg

I have the black (you may remember this). Bought and black and wear them all.the.time. Comfy and cute. Can’t ask for more than that. They go with everything! So, of course, I want a pair in another color? Opinions…..please…..

 Here are the Charades  (yarn is Summer of Love 80/20 Merino Cashmere blend)  – coming along very nicely. Since I was suppose to be dyeing today (got a bit done) and it has since started raining, I have been able to really kick these into gear. Might even have done tonight (Forest Gump is on – perfect knitting movie).


Do you think the yarn is too busy for the pattern?

Speaking of patterns: Kirsten  and I are collaborating. She is designing some kicky patterns  exclusively for Plucky yarn. What talent she has. So, in the next few weeks there will be two patterns available that compliment the yarn. Don’t know about you, but I love to have pattern ideas already in mind when I get new yarn.

Don’t forget to play along with the contest. Comments are open until midnight tomorrow. Thanks for playing along.

Oh, and a few updates to the shop have been made this evening – more to come as soon as they are finished drying.

    Okay, I know the brown might coordinate with more, but I really like the red. In fact, I have a pair of red shoes myself, and they are so fun and great for zipping up neutral outfits. 🙂 The Charade sock is so pretty – no, I don’t think the yarn is too busy for the pattern. I love it. And I can’t wait to see what Kirsten whips up for your yarns – she’s another one of my favorite bloggers. 🙂

    The Charade sock looks fantastic in your yarn! Wow! As for the shoes, you know I have both the brown and the black. But the only reason I didn’t consider the red is because I already have a great pair of red shoes. Every girl needs a pair of stunning red shoes!

    I know this is the boring answer, but I would buy the brown. I speak from personal experience. I’ve got a fabulous pair of red shoes, but everytime I put them on, they don’t seem to work with the outfit and I pull out the brown or black.

    I’m loving the Charades! They look wonderful in that yarn.

    The yarn/sock is beautiful. I would so wear ’em!
    About the shoes, if you find something that fits your big dutch feet, you need to buy them in every color available…hehehehehe
