My two favorite times of the year are spring and fall. There is so much inspiration from all the color it makes me feel dizzy. The dizziness is at it’s best this spring. I don’t know what has come over me but every where I look I’m completely overwhelmed by all the amazingly rich, bright, dazzling colors (not to mention the sweet blossom smells). And it’s kicking me right out of my earthtone colored box.
Here’s some of my inspiration.
I’m definitely having a romance with pink…even my nails are in a pickish hue.
Can you stand how beautiful those flowers are? I have a ton more pictures but I’ll save some for another day and post.
So anyway, Salto (pink!) was finished and I thought ok, take are break from socks (yeah right) and try something a bit different. I rummaged through my stash and thought how ’bout this bag.
I’ve had the pattern for a while and thought, yeah I’ll get to it but then I saw this version of it and decided that’s my next project. I picked my colors and cast on.
But as I was walking my dogs and was once again in awe of all the spring finery I changed my mind. The bag just seemed too dark for right now. So I decided to go with these instead (We’ll talk about the genius of this pattern later) in this color.
Wrong!!!…once again I’m trying to stay in the box but it just wasn’t working. So I decided to really look around and the view is quite amazing from outside my box…I have to say. Don’t you think this is so much better?
I don’t know what I love more, the pattern, the color or my new prespective.
Check out the colors for my next project…can you believe it? And I’m really excited about it.
The countdown to May 2 begins…I’m just going to ride this colorful wave and see where it takes me.
