So I finally decided I would make a Jayne hat for an event giveaway. Been resisting the itch otherwise. I went and spent an hour (would've been longer if they didn't throw me out to close up) swaying back and forth at the pletheria of yarn choices. Of course what I wanted was all three colors in Lopi or Lamb's Pride Bulky... but you know how it goes: orange here but yellow only in worsted weight... beautiful handdyed-golden-yummies for three times the price of one Lamb's Pride skein... sigh. I finally decided on my skeins and skidaddled. Even though I wasn't 100% behind my color choices but resigned to move forward, I became giddy at the idea of starting my hat. My other neglected projects began to murmur among themselves... what was this 'fancy new thing' that was getting all the attention?
So then I decided to watch the Message & the Easter Egg and congratulate myself on my yarn bounty. And so here's the thing and this springs from my own neurosis; it's not intended to start a riot -
the hats we're all making are yellow (gold), orange and rust red. But are my eyes and/or tv settings wrong? Is Jayne's hat not more (and I'm using these color descriptions to be as specific as possible - these will never exist on a yarn shelf): acorn squash orangey-gold; pumpkin orange; and burnt, dark-orange? Even the online screen caps I find look like three variants of orange.
I remembered it as yellow (gold), orange and rust red... I love the hats y'all make... have I gone crazy or color blind? cuz I'm seeing something else now.
your thoughts? and thank you!
