I got an email a few days ago from one Darius Monsef. If that name sounds familiar, you are probably a COLOURlover. COLOURlovers is a site for… well, people who love colour. It’s a great resource for folks who need colour scheme ideas or in my case, folks who are bored because their web design projects are finished and they’re waiting for a particular Lieutenant or Major to call them back (yay cushy civilian job for the military), so they just sit around rating palettes and playing with RGB values in photoshop.
I’ve been a member of this site for about 2 years now, but I must admit that I never made the connection between the benefits of such a site and how they could be applied to knitting. Fortunately, Darius made that connection for me, with a little bit of prodding from his knitter mother. If you’re a DIY dyer or a fair-isle freak, this site could be invaluable for coming up with new colour combinations.
Now what would be a really cool idea would be a little application that loads in palettes from COLOURlovers and finds matches to particular yarns. I’ll add that to the ever-increasing list of neat web-application ideas that I will never have time to write. For now, take a look at the site itself and bask in its time-sink possibilities. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
