An aran knit in cream-coloured wool is so classic. That's why I've opted to do my test knit in this:
Don't worry, there's a fourth (and I think a fifth) skein hanging out in my stash, so no anxiety in that department. Getting the right "cream" is the most important thing for me. I don't look good in anything with a yellow undertone. It's probably the grey hair. This wool, Cascade 220 in #8010, "natural", fits the bill. See you later after my appointment with my swift and wool winder.
