Since January, when I first started crocheting my mini granny squares blanket, I have been on the hunt for the perfect mustard yellow. A yellow that is not too yellow and not too bright. A yellow that is kind of vintagey and dull.
Do you know how hard it is to find a DK weight acrylic/acrylic wool blend yarn in a mustard yellow? Every time I found a yarn that would work, it ended up being discontinued.
I thought I had lucked out when the same brand of yarn that I am using for this project came out with a "gold" color. I ordered it and waited patiently for it to arrive from England. When I got my first look at the yarn, I knew deep down that it wouldn't work. I crocheted up a square and attached it to the others and I just didn't like it. It was not yellow enough.
The hunt continues...
