More Koigu Hearts
Koigu Hearts series, both in size Medium.
The top pair is colourway P219.
I found myself humming the Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever while I knit. (Well, technically, not while I knit as I'm counting rows semi-out-loud. But in the heels and toes I don't count, and so can hum away!)
The second pair is colourway P207.
I was still humming Strawberry Fields Forever...stuck in my head. I'll need to find a name for this colourway.
I'm sure I saw, on some website I've long lost, 'names' for Koigu colours...not sure if they were making them up (like me) or if there is actually an official name besides the dog tag numbers.
That's on the list to investigate.
It would be embarrassing if there were correct names and I'm motoring on making them up. That would confuse all of us!
At the Dye Pot
I never remember knitting it. I never remember selling it. But I keep dyeing more of it because I don't have any!
I actually really like the colour, especially when I've OD'd on blue, but it just seems to vanish.
Egad, maybe one day I'll lift a box looking for reds and come upon a huge stash of brown.
