Color Inspiration Thursday ~ Waikiki

IMG_1384

Waikiki is a saturated, aqua-blue colorway with aqua-green highlights, reminiscent of the amazing ocean colors of Hawaii and the Caribbean. It’s solid enough to be used for lace projects, but softly variegated to add depth and subtle shimmer to knitted items.

I just love this colorway. It’s fantastic on its own, but also a great one for colorwork projects. A perfect color for a dreary winter day.

  2. I’m not a huge fan of the color blue, but this blue-green shade is extraordinary! There may be a project with this color in my future.
