Pantone Color of the Year2011′s color of the year is Honeysuckle, according to leading color authority Pantone. They describe the color as a “dynamic reddish pink” that is “encouraging and uplifting”. With the terrible weather we’ve had on the East Coast, I think this bold color is great for adding a cheery pop of color to a winter’s day, such as with a handmade cowl or scarf. The color is also makes a great transition into spring and summer wardrobes. Want to add some Honeysuckle yarn to your collection? Here are just a few yarn suggestions.
