Amy’s Thread: Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Banana. Banana who?


… I don’t need to go on, do I?


It’s no secret that the design office here at Berroco is fond of the color orange. Norah loves it as much as I do and I did get a little mocking –  OK, a lot of mocking – in the office for blogging about it last week, so soon after her last orange post. 

But it’s a good color. It’s a very wearable color. Flattering on a variety of skin tones and great for both  young and old, boy and girls (men and women).

It’s a warm, summery color that ranges from terra cotta and Creamsicle® to golden afternoons.

The Weekend, Modern Cotton and Comfort yarns all have great oranges in their palettes – perfect for kids and babies.

Maybe you’re not convinced about wearing the orange, but you can always add a fun pop of color with an orange accessory like Barrington from the Lake House booklet.

Are you more likely to knit an orange garment or accessory?
