New Colour Choices for Me
We all have our own colours, right? The colours we gravitate towards, that we wear, that we decorate our homes in? For me, it’s green and purples and reds, with a little bit of copper and golden oranges. With greys as my neutral, usually.
The one colour I don’t use is blue. Well, except for denim – I do wear jeans an awful lot.
That’s why looking at my knitting right now is a little surprising, I’ve two big projects on the needles - a sweater, and a large shawl.
The sweater is Gwendolyn, by Fiona Ellis. I’m doing it in Cascade 220, and I’ve just started the armhole decreasing, so the back is well on it’s way to being done.
The second is Color Affection, by Veera Valimaki. I’m 3/4 of the way through the second section, so I’ve made a good start on this. I’m looking forward to the FO – they all seem so nice and smooshy. This one’s in two skeins of Indigodragonfly MCN Ultra Fingering and one of their MCN Fingering (the final colour to be added in is a very dark grey).
Sigh. One’s bright blue with grey accent, and one’s grey with bright blue accent. When did I become a blue person?
Anyway, it’s back to the Gwendolyn for me. I’m hoping to finish the back today, and then it’s just the pullover-or-cardigan decision to make before starting the front. I’m leaning towards cardigan, but I reserve the right to change my mind. The sleeves were done first, so I can’t do those to delay the decision, either.
