Countdown to Knitmas: Day 12

 As we make gifts for our loved ones, choosing the right color can be a great challenge. It is nice to have some guideline. I like to default to declarations made by Pantone.

The Pantone color of the year for 2015 is Marsala (PANTONE 18-1438). It is a lovely burgundy that leans toward the purple/brown side of that hue. I am thrilled because that is a great color for me (and I think many others). It is a color that can appear rich and feminine as well as refined and masculine.

I left this selection of colors in the Marsala family on the table in the shop. Coe see for your self or share your interpretations of this color.
