My Current Color Palette 

Hey Everyone!

While I have subliminally known the colors I gravitate towards for a while, my knitting Instagram feed just confirmed it. 


I am definitely not a bright colors person. I prefer blues, and the darker natural colors. That is pretty much all I am working with at the moment. 

Once I finish the pair of socks that I am working on, I really want to work with the Pink I have sitting (it is also Palette Yarn, in color: “Victorian”), and create some diversity in my Instagram feed. I also need some diversity in my wash bucket, so I don’t get pairs mixed up, when I hang them out to dry. 

In order to add a little bit of color to my Instagram feed, I took this picture:


This is most of my wool sock yarn stash, not all of it, but most. I still have about three pairs of forest green socks to make, as well as two pairs of the Victorian socks once I finish up the Larch Heather socks, before I am going to dive into the bucket of sock yarn.

KnitPicks Palette Hazelnut Socks 

Hey Everyone!

I finally got my pair of socks using KnitPicks Palette yarn in Hazelnut done last night. For using the KnitPicks Palette yarn, it took me a bit longer than normal to get them done because we have had company staying with us this week and I haven’t had as much time just to sit and knit as I do when Company isn’t staying. 

The power was also out yesterday, putting the pressure on me to get the second sock done before it got too dark. Knitting by pale lamp light isn’t good for the eyes and it is hard to see why you are working on. 


I really love the Hazelnut color. It is a brown, but it’s not a dull brown, as it has a bit more of an orange-y red hue to it, rather than more of a blue or green hue. It’s definitely a warmer, richer color, which I definitely like. 

So far, the KnitPicks Palette yarn is my favorite sock yarn. It is easy to work with, it’s not super expensive, and comes in a ton of colors.
