Does this match?




Or is this second one better? Or do I need all THREE greens to match it up? Plus some jade green?






Benne and Thom came up with a third option-is it truer?





I had ANOTHER idea---perhaps Tahki cotton classic would be the right color range...

I think that you need all 3 greens and I really dont like the second blue. It doesnt really match with the first blue. Acutally, maybe its the first blue that has to go cuz the second and third blue are matching fine. Also, is there more of a teal green or aqua green to tie in the blue?

Okay, Thom and I played with colors. Actually, I was playing with my Sonata color sample card and he wanted to play too. ;-} How about this: Alaskan Blue (2369), Peacock Green (2772), Jade (5382), Light Sage (5116), and Fresh Pesto (7471)?

Benne and Thom are the closest IMHO. I say take the light sage out, slam the pesto next to the jade and add tarragon on the end.
It's a really hard one to match, partially due to the relative matte of the sonata vs the shine of the silk.

I like angel blue, alaskan,light sage, tarragon and pesto. I also like angel, alaskan, tapestry blue, tarragon and pesto. What are you making? Whatever it is, I can't wait to see it. Where is the picture of your finished wren? Did I miss it?

I think Benne and Thom's scheme works the best. This is just the thing to jumpstart the mo-freakin-jo. Bri

Tahki Cotton is better. More shine is the difference. ScullyKnits

I don't have a CC color card but I think you are on the right track. The turquoises in the Sonata weren't quite right. The CC colors look more vibrant--they actually look like they match the dress!

Yep, go for the Cotton Classic - better range of colors in the right hues for your project.

No suggestions, but wow. That skirt on the cover shot is just amazing! Those are the colours I have slowly been bringing into my kitchen.
