Life is about using the whole box of crayons. ~RuPaul
We all tend to have our favorite colors or combinations of colors we gravitate towards. Since I was about four or five, purple has been a favorite color of mine, but there’s an entire world of color out there. This year, I wanted to branch outside my comfort zone to discover colors I wouldn’t normally pick especially for items like sock, dishcloths or gifts. Liberated Orphan number two is bright and colorful. Presenting Cloths of Many Colors, two cotton dish cloths using the Rank and File pattern. The bright pink and orange cloth uses Fantasy Naturale Multi by Plymouth. The blue and purple cloth is Sugar n’Cream. Both are 100% cotton. The bright cloth is for me and the other is going into my gift pile. Since these are small items, I’m counting two as one finished wip.
In celebration of another finished wip, I picked out colors for our next blanket. Okay, I know I’m not supposed to be casting on a new project for every one I finish, but don’t these colors look great together?
I’m going to try Plymouth Encore again since it’s so soft. I think this will become a Modern Log Cabin.
Update on other wips:
- Earth & Sky: I have about 2 inches completed on the border.
- Portland Bias Scarf: Skein two has 1.79 grams left.
- Frank in Pairs: Eek, I worked on this one. I now have four rows in the second Frank Ochre section.
- Dewberry Dancer: I couldn’t work on one without working on the other. Section two has 25 out of 36 rows completed.
This weekend, the British Hubby and I spent some time in the kitchen. I roasted some sweet potatoes and made Cherry Barbecue Sauce for the first time. This sauce will be great on chicken and tofu. The British Hubby loves lamb. Here it is resting after it’s been infused with sprigs of rosemary.
Ernie shared the new blanket with Burt. Burt says, “It’s soooo soft.”
Two wips down and seven more to go. Stay tuned for a whirl wind of finished projects.
