Knitting Nonni's blanket WIP
I am making progress on my Nonni Patch blanket. I am still enthralled with it. I am not colorgifted. I stole the colors from Nonni's own 9 patch blanket. Thank you thank you Nonni.
I was in Mosaic Yarns in DesPlaines the other day. They were so nice. Darlene was giving me ways to improve my color choices. NO colorwheel stuff, just real life examples. THe previous post images of the sweater and children's dress were from Mosaics shop. I had my camera with me, as usual. Darlene suggested I find photographs or take photographs of things I find colorful. She said Alice Starmore did this with nature and color.
I liked her second idea even better. Find a skein with a colorway that amazes you, then find individual yarns from within that colorway and knit yourself silly. I plan to try this for my next project. Whatever that is!
Oh, and I have a blank wall in the kitchen! Sweet husband took down the decade old ivy wallpaper yesterday. I am delighted to have a blank wall! More blank wall images to follow.
have you had a blank wall recently?
