Inspired by the Woolly Hugs "Kinship Projects" colour palettes I have decided to create some on my own to share with fellow crocheters & knitters (and anyone else really!)
These are absolutely free to use & I hope you enjoy them as they are or a starting point for your own variations.

Oh and I'd love to see photos of any projects! smile

Yes Zing, a mango shade would be nice.
Maybe Tomato is technically an orange shade tho.

I love the Saffron, my grandma always dyed her kitchen curtains with actual saffron.

Spoilt for choice now smile

Maybe tomato is, but I need more between jaffa and sunshine!
Plus paler shades, equivalent of the cloud blue in the blues, or citron in the yellows.
Apricot is a pinkish and very pale and there's nothing between apricot and jaffa nor apricot and spice.
It bothers me. blush Anyway, to me Apricot is the watered down sibling of Padparadscha, not true orange.
(Haven't forgotten peg, but couldn't get the wool until today!)

I love your Retro one. You are so good at this. It immediately reminded me of various things in my Nana's house!

ZingDramaQueenOfSheeba Sun 14-Aug-16 23:11:08

Any time Dixie!

Leslie
I have found a plate at my PILs and matched the colours, for fun.
I remember some of my family had those colours around.
I like bright colours, but it's still a nice combo, thanks.

(Sorry I haven't replied to your PM, you'd think summer meant lazing about but it's been quite busy here! X)
