|Purple, blue wool and silver thread tri-wrap and|
purple with red wool wrap. I'm also in a light
and lacy phase, to go with the purple.
So, when I took the three finished purple wraps in to show them off to friends, I was surprised to hear several people say, "You're always so good at picking the colors that are in style."
Hmm... really? Me? I get to pick the colors that are in style? WOW!
Ok, so I know what they meant, but I was wondering how, in my isolated life here in the Ozarks, with no tv or malls, that I even have any awareness of the colors that are popular. After some thought, I decided it is a peripheral awareness from reading magazines (other than Sheep, which is printed mostly in black and white.), paying attention to etsy and a general awareness of what visitors to town are wearing. I don't do any deliberate research.
Or maybe I AM the anonymous "They" who gets to pick the popular colors. Somebody has to.
Look out world! I have a sudden craving for green.
