On a recent binge visit to Koigu, I selected these colours for a particular project:
From the left: P816, P603. P521. P819, P451 and P809.
The method in my madness of selecting these particular colours – each has a dominant colour of the rainbow but also contains, in a lower proportion, the colour of the skein adjacent. So the predominantly red skein also contains some of the same tone of orange as the skein beside it, the orange skein has some of the yellow, and so on, ending with the purple skein which contains some of the blue preceding it.
And as if to complete a circle, the red skein has some of the purple in it as well.
I’m anxious to play with these colours and see what kind of socks evolve on my sock knitters.
But to take things a little further I contacted Taiu at Koigu and asked if she could custom paint something special for me, and she said she and Rhichard would put this special request together for me. I picked it up today:
This colourway is made up of the dominant colours and in the same values as each of the 6 colourways above.
Maybe this colourway could be called Koigophone, or Soxagu….but officially it shall be known as P882.
