Pantone colours


I love blue greys. I've painted my workroom cornflower blue because I find it relaxing and a good background colour. This combination by Tommy Hilfiger is just the sort of thing I want to wear. I'll be knitting some of these heavy duty jumpers and scarves. That's for sure!

Pantone's usual effusive description has not continued for this end of the spectrum. It calls its blue grey for fall/winter 2011, quarry and says of it,

Quarry, a reliable, medium gray, remains, as always, a practical, dependable staple.

Lack of imagination, or did they run out of adjectives with their other autumn colours?

Imagination is not lacking with the shops I've included today. There were so many gorgeous items I had to leave out but special mention goes to the best dressed dog I've seen in a while.

The pattern is available at Wendy M Handknits

I've included a lovely print by Gorjuss because it reminds me of Rolla. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
