The weather this week has been what one would expect in the blustery fall months. There has been a little warmth, but mostly it's been rain, snow and a mix of the two. When given a break by the weather I've walked about with camera in hand. The colors and textures of fall are everywhere and I think it's time to listen to the earth and find a new color to knit. (After all, I do have a gift card.)
The rusty and deep reds are so enticing!
Or maybe I should give a rich, multi-shaded green a try...
How about the browns, yellows and gold of fallen leaves? What a beautiful yarn that would make.
Several days ago, after Suzy and finished her latest sweater, we had an email conversation about what yarn and color she should use for her next project. We talked about red and orange, even green, and other beautiful shades of fall. Her final decision was the perfect color for this time of year, Glazed Carrots. I was quite envious.
So, off I go, my head full of fall color and texture, my heart full of hope and desire, to find the perfect yarn for the next sweater. (No, I do not really need another project but there is that gift card.)
What jumped off the wall, what color grabbed my attention (I admit to looking at it on-line while talking to Suzy), what color could I not put back and had to buy?
Blue. Azul Profundo to be exact. I may be in a rut, but I am one happy camper. I promise (myself and you), my next sweater, after this one, will be another color. Promise.
