I went on a hunting trip through Gayle’s blog posts and found this interesting piece.
Here’s what Gayle has to say:-
My husband and I were picking the colour for a carpet runner and it was clear that we were thinking, and seeing, differently. Our lovely salesman pulled out the pic you see above to explain what may be going on. I can’t credit the creator as I don’t know what the source is, but it’s fun and may be useful in some situations of discord.
Now I know why my husband always asks for anything I knit for him to be in Blue. He never wears any other colour – Oh except maybe grey or beige. It does say something about the other half doesn’t it 🙂
