Tango stash busting



OK after much to-ing and fro-ing

I am going to knit Coraline by Ysolda

But what colour - beige or orange?

help - I wear black, jeans and such during winter so I lean to orange for brightness or beige for sophistication


as you can see I have cracked out the TANGO!!!!!


edited to add later

ORANGE HAS WON - thanks everyone and when I get bored I am going to knit another one in beige. Thanks for you help!!!!!

and even later

I love the orange. Why not do one in both colours! LOL

Hey, my word verification is 'ourgeno', so must be meant to be orange.

Shit, do I sound like the girl in Angel Baby? LMAO

my first instinct was the orange, but now that i have met you and see how lovely you look in natural tones (mmmm.....pi shawl) I'm inclined towards the beige - partly because Coraline is in a natural tone originally.

I vote for beige.

Go the orange! I reckon there's not enough colour in winter, and if your wearing black, orange would be purrrfect!

LynS said...

A totally unhelpful comment - choose either! It's such a great pattern and will look good either in orange or the natural colour. You'll wear the creamy-natural more, but the orange would make such a statement.

I vote orange!! Although selfishly...if you knit it in the beige, and decide to destash the orange, I would happily take it off your hands...heh!!

No - do it in orange!!

Orange! I loves me some Tango. I think Coraline will be gorgeous in the orange. Brighten up a dreary winter :)

i would have said beige for you but i think you are right to try something diferent with the orange. look forward to seeing it in person!

Orange orange orange orange orange.

It's a nice dusky muted orange, not exactly the colour of an actual orange. Also, matches the teapot.

Glad you chose ORANGE ORANGE ORANGE - only right for a jumper in tango yarn, anyway!

(Can't remember, is there a nasty orange flavoured fizzy pop in Oz called Tango? See lots of dodgy ads re 'you've been tangoed' here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1jywlZG74o )
