When I saw a lot of di.Ve’ Zenith yarn on sale at Webs at the end of last year, I immediately thought of Tubey. I knew that I wanted to make it with dark brown as the main color, and at $3.99 per ball, this seemed like a good time to buy. It’s always a gamble to choose a yarn color from a photo, especially on the Internet, but I just bought one ball each of a few other colors that looked like they would go with the dark brown.
And they do, I guess, but I’m definitely having flashbacks to the 70’s. Almond. Harvest Gold. Avocado Green. Hmmm. This definitely reminds me of a lot of the clothes I wore back then. And the wallpaper my mother put in the kitchen in the early 70’s, except that it also had a lot of burnt orange in it, too.
I wasn’t originally planning on doing any more stripes on the body – just the few at the bustline. But I’m just not sure about that green. Maybe I’ll rip back and switch the green and gold. Or add some more stripes.
