Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango!

Pantone has announced their 2012 Color of The Year and it's

Tangerine Tango!!!

According to the Pantone site:

 Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the
energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

I think it's just beautiful!

You know I love my bright colors and especially love ANYTHING orange!

Here are some yarns that come close to this gorgeous color!
Spud and Chloe Sweater in Firecracker (# 7509)

Berroco Weekend in Blood Orange

Cascade 220 Superwash in 907 Tangerine Heather

Debbie Bliss Andes in 22 Burnt Orange
I think I'd like to make myself a triangle shawl in one of these gorgeous shades!

Here's a nice article from Time about how Tangerine Tango is the encouraging color of 2012.

And here's a cute blurb from Bella Sugar on how this shade popped up all over Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week in makeup as well as clothes color!

Love that lippie!
