A moment of knitting zen….
Needles in my hand
Moving through stitches quickly.
Creating is done.
Can you come up with your own knitting haiku?
I have a very distinct taste in colors, but when I look through my stash, I see all colors. Some I have purchased myself, some I’ve found, some have been given to me.
Two colors seem to dominate my stash and projects, though, and that would be blue and green. I’ve even inadvertently bought skeins and balls that have been very similar to each other at different times. For example, take a look at the two Liberty Wool hat and the Knit Picks Chroma WIP that were purchased at different times and yet are similar.
See what I mean? And these shades of blue and green dominate my work. Always that bright green with sky blue, aqua, and a dash of yellow.
I’m not sure what it is about these colors. Perhaps it is the way they make me feel. There is something comforting in these hues. Besides complimenting each other in the color wheel, they are also found together in nature: green grass, blue sky, yellow sun. They are the ideal colors for my ideal sunny day.
These are colors that I love. And I feel like they love me back. I wear them, I knit with them, I enjoy them. They make me feel good about myself and the world around me.
I have recently discovered Reddit and the wonderful knitting community that they have there. I recommend you check them out. Read the rules before posting anything, though. I have found the other subscribers and admins there to be quite nice. It’s a thriving community.
