the end of pocket money

Yeah. Just bought some yarn for Christmas presents. (And the Super 60's Poncho, but shh, don't tell abou that.) Dropped a huge chunk of change at the yarn store. On colors that I can only hope people will like.

Doesn't everyone like to dress like a rainbow just exploded? I was thinking about this the other day, about Color In General, and realized that there's not really a color I don't like/won't wear. Ok, possibly mustard yellow, but that's gross for almost everyone. There was a long time when I owned no green, but I got over that last year. I'll wear yellow, and if I'm not careful, everything I own will be orange. Blue, red, purple, pink--I'm in. Neutrals, I love you.

Ok, now I'm not sure where the color rant came from, but possibly because my Super 60's Poncho is going to be made from Cascade 220 in Lapis, which is a badass bluey-purpley-greeney-pinkey heather. (It's kind of bruise-colored, but in a good way.) And the thing is, when I was looking at the Cascade online, I kept reminding myself that I wanted something that would look nice with jeans. Something not too close to jeans-color, you know? I reminded myself of this in the store. And then I picked up Captain Lapis, which will look ok with most of the jeans I have, but I'll sort of be all in the same tonal palette, which I'm not keen on.

We all know what this means: I'm going to have to buy a pair of dark jeans.
