The sky has gone from blue to gray, the cool crisp air of
unsettled spring has returned, and the mountains are once again dusted with
snow. While Cara is feverishly immersed
in colored mitres, Ruth is pixilating her colors into patterns, and Lolly is
enjoying the new Project Spectrum colors for April and May, my world is still blue. Color abounds in the landscapes, as spring blossoms pop forth and brightly colored sock yarns attract knitters, like bees
to red tulips. I’m happily
singin’ knitting the blues. The blues
invade my heart and filled with joy as I knit a blue Lacy Waves.
Instead of the continuing on with the back, I opted to knit the front, along with the lace inset, as curiosity won the day. The laciness of the sleeve attracted my attention next and the simple *yo, P2tog* has been just the right amount of holey-ness for my brain to handle. I’m truly tangled up in this calming, gentle blue.
The blues continue, as the lovely socks for my Bloomin’ Feet pal are growing quickly. The nice thing about the beautiful blue bloomin’ sock is that it will be slow to fade, unlike spring flowers. My pal, who is often in my thoughts as work on this sock, has a big event coming her way (and that’s about all I can say). So, I knit good thoughts, positive vibes and prayers into the stitches. I’m a little sappy when it comes to clothing the feet of another, in this case another person I don’t really know. For some reason (perhaps it’s the impending event) I feel an intimacy with my pal as I knit her socks. I do want them to be perfect, in color, style and fit, and hope that because I love them so, she will too.
Knitting two projects, two blue projects, has been the right way to go, plus it’s calming and relaxing to have only two projects calling for my attention. While there is no rush, no desire to start something new, the un-Zen part of my brain is wondering what the next project will be.
