Today is Day One and I almost forgot! Here's the topic for today:
Colour is one of our greatest expressions of ourselves when we choose to
knit or crochet, so how do you choose what colours you buy and crochet
or knit with. Have a look through your stash and see if there is a
predominance of one colour. Do the same with your finished projects - do
they match? Do you love a rainbow of bright hues, or more subdued
tones. How much attention do you pay to the original colour that a
garment is knit in when you see a pattern? Tell readers about your love
or confusion over colour.
Well, anyone who knows me or has been reading my blog for any length of time knows that I love lots of colors -- as long as they're BLUE. :) Actually, I love all the 'jewel-tone' colors (blues, purples, teals, fuschias and greens) but I do end up knitting with a lot of blues! The only time I knit with any other colors (pastels, autumn tones, etc.) is if I know the item I'm knitting is for someone else specifically.
I've had a busy several days, and I'm exhausted! I went to a Welcome Wagon conference in Nanaimo ... here was the view from my hotel room (which I WON in a WW contest!) ...
And I finished the purple sweater in plenty of time to wear, both days! Here's Janet and I modelling our FO's at last Thursday's Rock Salt knitting circle:
Now I'm working pretty much exclusively on the lighthouse shawl until it's done. (I know, famous last words and all that....)
