Winter Doldrums

I have been working on three projects recently. A shawl, an afghan, and a very cute cardi for spring.  All are lovely and then I looked at them all together and realized I am knitting in shades of black, grey, and beige.

The funk of winter has hit my knitting. How weird is that? I normally knit in color, reds, purples, greens…….lively colors. At least I bought red buttons for the grey cardi.

So next time I am at my favorite yarn store, Churchmouse Yarns & Teas, I promise to stay away from the neutrals, I promise to find some bright color to wake up the doldrums of winter, maybe a little orange something?

Oh and for those of you that saw the photos of the roadtrip sleeves of my Larch cardi. It is finished and ready for St. Patty’s Day.  OK, so I do have color in my life!

    • So am I Kate, I found I was falling asleep knitting the grey cardi. Hopefully the new red will wake me up a little.
