Not trying to tempt you, or anything.

There has been some buzz around about the lovely new bright blue Palette:) So I thought I'd give y'all a closer look.

The color is Cyan, and let me tell you - it really, really is Cyan! If you're a fan of blue printer ink, you are going to love this one. Personally, I think it's an awesome 'pop' color for colorwork designs. It's not a really warm or a particularly cool blue, so it sets off greys and browns quite well. I think it looks darn good with hot pink, but then doesn't everything?

My favorite new additions to Palette (Though it's a close call with everything else we just added) is definitely the new beachy-peachy colors: Mai Tai Heather, Conch and Rose Hip.

They are bright without being overbearing, which i really love. They really capture the 'pop' of the natural rosy peach colors you'd find in a flower or shell.
And then there's the new purples (you can just see some in the above image). Oddly, I'm not a real purple person, yet about half the yarn that appeals to me is purple. So when Mulberry, Lantana and Ladyslipper rolled into our office, I really couldn't resist. I may just be doing something with them in the upcoming Colorwork Knitalong that Melissa is starting soon... you'll have to join and find out!

Kerin, Are you ladies just taking turns trying to torture us! I bet there's a schedule on the wall... Tina you show this, Kerin you show that, Kelley you do the needles! I can definitely see at least a couple of $50 orders forming in my mind!

I am definitely NOT a big yellow/orange fan... don't own anything in either of these colors because they are so overpowering, but THESE yellows/oranges are muted just enough to make them desireable even to me. The cyan is also fantastic. And I agree with Susan, who COULT refuse a Mai Tai Heather (not me, either)!
