FFBE Weekly Topic #2

The colors of fall tend to be oranges, yellows, crimsons, and other 'leafy' colors - what is your favorite "Color of Autumn" and where do you see it?

This is rough. I LOVE when you see all those colors mixed together on the trees. And, in my mind, there's a beautiful yarn that blends all those colors into something perfect for a hat and scarf. But, I probably wouldn't wear it. I'm not a big fan of wearing orange, and I feel like that's a dominant color of the season. (I have to say though, my high school colors were orange and black - Go Tigers! - and I wore a lot of orange back in the day!)

Okay, I've got it - when they're outside playing in the yard, my kids' cheeks get apple red (for real, APPLE- I think it's the Norwegian in them). Rosy cheeks - that's my favorite color of autumn.

Their cheeks get really red when they're tired too - it's like a little meter. The more red, the more tired is the child!

Happy knitting!

Oh no! My high school colors were orange and black too. I played sports for many years and the other teams would call us pumpkins or try to make jokes about eternal Halloween. We HATED our colors. Sooo now my favorite color is orange. Huh.

I love that! What a great color of fall! And I'm totally with you - while the oranges of trees and pumpkins can be nice, it's SO not a favorite color for me!
