Glad you mentioned the sale for Joann's fabrics. I already ordered my yarn for this swap but can save it for another time if you all want to change it. I got a nice light blue, a beautiful pale pistachio green (it's so pretty), a gray blue and a light and dark purple as well. I think they look very springy (although I don't think every swap has to look exactly like the season it's being held in). Really looking forward to when I have time to put them together!
I'm starting to think that I may make a four season afgan with different colors from these swaps. Well the four seasons won't be so literal. I will use whatever comes from the next few swaps unless they really clash, of course. Can't imagine they would though unless one of the swaps goes to neon colors or something like that.
I like the colors you already have Kim and yes, they look very springy!
The four season square blanket sounds so nice. I think I'll make a fall one and a spring one. Thanks for checking my colors. I thought they looked like they matched the color wheel. I might order some yarn from Joann's before the special is over with, but haven't had time to look at the colors online. They have so many brands etc. What brand of yarn did you order? Just curious. I think my stash I posted is Red Heart. The light purple is definitely Red Heart called "Pale Plum". I lost the sleeves for the others long ago. I thought I had some blue yarn somewhere. Hmmm....I guess I need to dig a little deeper in my stash again.
Oh sorry, you asked this already in your pm but I spaced.
I bought the Caron simply soft in a variety of cool colors, dark and light colors. I thought the dark colors would look awesome on a light background for contrast. I have the color "Pistachio", that's my favorite but it is lighter than real pistachios. I also got a rich teal that is called "Ocean", I love this color too. Then I got a purple that is called "Passion" which is not what I was hoping for. It looked like a rich deep purple on my monitor but in reality has a lot of red so I probably won't use this color. Lastly, I got a light blue which they call "Blueberry" but is even paler than a sky blue. I also already had a baby blue, a grey blue, a lavender and a couple different shades of green. The lavender is Bernat's Baby soft so if I use this it will be for decoration only not the main body of the square. It's just too fine for that. I still need a rich purple. It will look so good against the other colors I have.
I went to the Caron site to look them up and they are sooooooo pretty!
