I’m very excited to start a New Girl Knitalong with Angela on Friday! I received my Gaea Sport from Blue Moon Fiber Arts on my lunch break, and I’m mulling over my options. I planned on using Everyday Grey with either Sunstone (orange) or Marina as a contrast. I thought this would be a snap to decide when they arrived, but I’m still struggling. Thoughts?
These are just some phone pics, since I’m too impatient to wait for nicer shots when I get home. The first two pics are Sunstone/Everyday Grey shown in color and with it’s black & white version for color contrast comparison. Everyday Grey/Marina are the second two shots.
The Everyday Grey/Marina has a little bit more contrast, but I’m somewhat stumped. The colors are a little different from what I was expecting when I ordered them online, as these things always go. I expected the grey to have less of a blue hue to it and the Marina looked much lighter. The Sunstone was also crazy bright, and I was expecting it to have a little more retina shock in person. I’m a little disappointed that they came out so differently. Thoughts?
