The Bat Signal

Let’s talk Color Affection. I was knitting along on the border last night, and it’s official. I hate it. Not the whole thing, just the CC2/border color. Thankfully, I have a big ‘ol stash, so I went diving last night. Here’s what I came up with.

On the left is a Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 that I purchased last November. ON the right is an even longer-aged Bugga. Last night, I thought the Bugga was going to be the way to go.

But today? In sunlight? I think it’s the ZYG.

Either way, it’s going to be a big improvement.

What do you think? Please! I really want your opinions!

Personally I like the brighter blue...I think it will pop more. The other one feels more muted, and would blend in too much for my tastes.

Not to split the vote, but while I first leaned to the brighter bugga, I do think the Zen works.

I think you can't go wrong with either one, but I think I like the ZYG a little better. The brighter blue just seems too bright to me.

I definitely think the ZYG is the better choice.

They both look good, but I'm leaning toward the ZYG.

I like the color on the bright one better but I think the zyg is the better fit for your piece. This is such a popular project! I'm not sure I understand the appeal but they are beautiful when done. Kinda like that wingspan thing.
