my new favourite colour....


...is orange! I have such a penchant for this beautiful reddish orange shade at the moment - a perfect name for it is blood orange - that when I spied these lovely snuggly Chloe tights on sale this weekend I had to have them. They have inspired me to knit something in this colour, maybe some socks...if I ever get round to it! watch this space...

I think that's my new favourite colour too - I've been trying to find some wool about that tone but haven't quite matched it yet.

yes, there is just something so darn yummy about this shade. In loop we have some jade sapphire cashmere in a scrummy extra bright blood orange, but it isn't quite as rust-like and cosy as the tone of these. So, i feel your pain on this one. Let me know if you find any, as some socks in this colour would be fantabulous!
