SBQ: Color My World

If you have stitched for a while, can you usually pick out the DMC colors you need from memory when you go to your LNS? (For example, you know that 610 is a brown.) Of course! My friends and I talk about buying a new shirt that is "224" or painting a room "502." Ultimately, my numbers dyslexia--I always remember numbers shifted around, 810 for 801--means I have to rely on looking carefully at the color. That's why I hate those colors that are separated by several numbers from others in their family--the number just seems too wrong for the color to be right. Nothing you can do about that, though...
