I don't know why BLOGGERS new format won't let me make paragraphs. Somebody help me please!!! - Today's topic for the 3rd Annual Knit and Crochet Blog week is: COLOR.-
I went to these new blogs for some color inspiration: - I love finding new blogs to read. ...... wooldurham a pile of sheep whatzitknitz ripitgood and figheadh.com. From Fig's blog I was able to find a great free cowl neck pattern that I will be knitting soon.
- Irisheyes Lynn must have known that there was NO pink in my stash. She graciously found me at 0650 this morning at a patients bedside and gave me two luscious skeins of pink Lorna's Laces....just because. She's tired of them in her stash.....Oh Lynn. I think this was the best moment of my today. -
So it is suggested we talk color today. Well here's my thoughts on color. I go in phases...like everything else in my life. I WORRY about color. When I am gift giving a precious hand knit, I worry worry worry about color. What if they don't have anything to wear with this fuscia scarf? these lime green hats? or that violet shawl? (Well shoot if its for Chan she'll just buy something to go with it. Love that girl) - Truth is, I fall in love with the color long before I knit anything. Never the other way around. Hmmmm perhaps I shall try the other way around. -
I'm always attracted to blues/greens for my stash. I have never liked bold primary colors. I couldn't watch the Stooges because they were in black and white. My favorite part of the Wizard of Oz besides the tornado of course, is when the screen changes from black and white to color.
