Trend: Coral

For me, coral means summer. It's light, bright, and looks amazing with summer whites. A great accent color, it looks great on a variety of skin tones.

Some options for coral yarn:

Carolyn's colors Calypso yarn in corals and pinks:

Countess Ablaze 4-ply merino silk in coral:

I love these colorways! I'm definitely a geek for semisolids, and these corals make my mouth water! I think it's because they remind me of one of my favorite candies: 

Coral's not your thing? Maybe this is!

  1. You did see my nails last night, right? I am all about coral! It's also not too far off from Pantone's color of 2012: Tangerine Tango, another favorite.

    That Countess merino/silk is gorgeous, by the way. I bet it would look fabulous as a loop scarf or shawlette.

  2. You make me want to go shopping and buy all the coral. I've been told it's a good color on me.

  3. Your bank accounts may not thank me, but your stashboxes will. :D

  4. Gorgeous yarn! I've always heard that coral is the most universally flattering color and I can't say I've ever seen someone wearing it who didn't look awesome. I love it.
