Ode to Orange

in Yarn

Did I ever mention that I am obsessed with orange? Seriously. I think it was all those years of cheering on the Bears. Then my high school colors were navy and orange. Then there is the Illini. I think Orange should be the official color of the state of Illinois.

So, what is an orange lover to do? She orders a bunch of orange yarn from Knit Picks to knit a sweater. Then fatasizes about all the other orange yarns she didn’t buy. It’s a sickness really. I wonder if there are support groups to help people forget the orange and move on to black or white.

Funny how I don’t have anything orange in my wardrobe at this time. Hmmm, I better get knitting!

I’m an orange fan, too. But I do already have quite a bit of it in my wardrobe. That’s no excuse not to get more, though.

I love the orange….can’t wait to make Samus mostly because it’s orange in the “sample!”

Am relieved to see your post. I tried to get to your site the last time Bloglines said you posted and typepad wouldn’t let me in. It kept saying your account was deactivated. I was a tad worried.
