I'm speaking of the color salmon in Noro yarn. Have you ever been knitting along on a really colorful and yummy Noro sock yarn and BAM ! Suddenly there is a splash of yucky salmon, putrid pink or snotty green ! What did you do ? Were the colors just fine with you ? Did you stress a bit about how they were going to mess up your beautiful socks or did you... Dare I say it ?
Did You Cut The Yuckies Out ?
Here is a bit of yucky salmon next to actual uncooked salmon. Had I poached the salmon even for 2 minutes, it would have been the color of the Noro Sock salmon. In fact, it was that color but I ate my salmon before I had a chance to take a picture. You get my point though.
Where is all of this going you ask ? Well, I started the Gathered Scarf pattern this morning and spent a good deal of time cutting out the colors that I reeeeeeally don't like. This particular 'Sock' is heavy with citrus colors. Fortunately there is dark green and raspberry to mix it up a bit.
Now that the salmons, snot greens and pinks taken out, I'm a happier knitter.
This is what my Gathered looks like so far. It will make a nice holiday gift.
Pardon my use of the word snotty. This is usually a half way decent blog.
