A year ago I knitted an orange/pink sweater for my granddaughter, and it turned out great despite my initial misgivings.
When I saw her wearing it, hopping and skipping happily beside her father, I totally fell in love with the colour combination and thought I might want to have something similar myself. At home I went through my enormous yarn stash and thought I perhaps the Peer Gynt (100% wool) would do even though I didn’t have any in bright orange or pink. The closest shades I could come up with would be golden ochra and light lilac. Grave misgivings all throught the knitting, but when I came near the end I was surprised to see how well the colours worked together.
Judge for yourselves!
And the finished piece? Absolutely satisfactory, if I may say so myself!
