to deep Navy blue. A leap in colours and a leap into the crazy around here. After a calm spell with my hook and a jewel toned green life flipped into chaos and disorder tearing me away from this project and really from anything other than cleaning and bored kid damage control. But back I am for the 5th colour in our lovely rainbow.
My “nest”… sewing, reading, and school prep… all under a blanket made by Ken. Bliss.
And a welcome addition it is. Blue is my absolute favourite colour in all of its marvelous shades. I know some feel that blue is a sad colour, but for me it is calming. Like a bright blue, clear sky or a large, clear body of water.
One of the reasons I love this pattern so much (Yay for Yarn Patterns thank you!) is because of the repeating rainbow. There is something even brighter about the colours repeating many times. It will be interesting to see how many rainbows I end up with by the end. This first one has already been a lovely addition to my schedule. Just one more colour and then it will be complete.
In the morning I managed a better colour of the Navy, but that Kelly Green is elusive… it could be that simply some things are meant to be seen in person? I will keep trying!
Today’s colour was Kelly Green. This was actually chosen as a pure coincidence but has great meaning for both the recipient of this blanket and myself. Towards the end of last year we said good bye to a good friend and fellow mom of multiples Kelly after a hard battle with an aggressive cancer. She was an inspiration and an amazing friend and mother.
I love that her name has popped up in this project. A lovely reminder that even though someone may leave you in body their spirit is always there. So in every green row there is a little bit more love stitched in.
I am still not happy with the quality of colour in these photos. I hope to get the true boldness and richness of the colours caught one of these days.
We will always miss Kelly but we will also always remember the good times, the inspirational words she shared with us and the time spent with her either in person or online. This colour, so bright and warm is absolutely the perfect representation of this for my friend. And that it was chosen purely by coincidence.
There is something highly appropriate about the colour green standing for a person who has passed on. Green is for growth and life and change, a reminder that we need to continue on in her stead. That we have the additional task to make this world brighter just as she did and would want us to.
I do love a bit of yellow in a project whenever it is possible. I feel like one of the kids constantly reciting the colours of the rainbow… red… orange… yellow…
And bright yellow it is, crocheted during class. There is something highly calming when you have a nice repeating project in your hand while dealing with children who are VERY unwilling to let go of the Christmas crazies.
I have committed to no more than a colour a day to force myself to continue with other projects, today’s list: a dishcloth (also in a yellow) and the body portion of a large doll. We are also dealing with a major reorganization so there is all sorts of clutter to deal with so please forgive the less than tidy backgrounds behind the project.
