I have a question. On Ravelry they ask what color family and what colorway? My socks were kinda yellow and black stripes. How would I answer their question?

Most of the time the colours are called something…for example, I was working wit some Caron Simply Soft…one ball of orange, one ball of purple and one ball of green, but the colour ways were called Mango, Iris and Limelight…

Just the name of the colour, not the brand name…

The color family is just for you also. It’s there so you can look through and see which reds, blues, etc you have if you’re looking for a certain color. I just pick the predominant color if it’s a blend or pick one that I like the best if there isn’t.


The yarn is Cascade Fixation Mushroom. Would the colorway be Mushroom?


And if it’s a gray or brown (just guessing), you might put that in for your own reference.
