Knitting Challenge: Finding Yarn the Color of My Cat

I’ve spent many long moments staring into the lovely green eyes of my cat Sketch, and recently I noticed how beautiful his green eyes and orange nose fit with the colors of his fur.

Sketch is so handsome!

I decided to make a trip to my local yarn store to see if I could find a these colors and knit something with them.

I wandered around for at least twenty minutes, dealing with the usual problem I face when I try to do a color-inspired project like this: when I could find a good green and orange in a specific yarn type, they wouldn’t have the brown and beige. And if I found the brown and beige, they wouldn’t have the green and orange. I considered mixing yarn types, especially after I discovered the perfect cat nose yarn:

This yarn screams “cat nose.”

Finally I noticed that both of these lines had some good combinations:

I was going to settle on the Cascade 220 on the right because it had the dark brown that the other lacked, and even had it in the basket:

But then I found this Rowan Lima and decided I wanted to knit with that instead.

So I’m not sure what I’m going to make with this yarn, but I’m leaning toward a hat with cat ears. I’ll keep you posted. đŸ˜‰
