In Living Color (or Color Obsessed?)

     Besides my current KAL - this is what is on my needles. You can find the pattern by clicking on the picture - if  you are so inclined. This site is often times busy so keep trying!

      I love color - have I mentioned that before? I just received another order from Elmore-Pisgah. How does that happen... boxes mysteriously show up at my door? I can go without food on my table but the cotton yarn keeps on coming. How handy! You probably can tell from these pages that I like color a LOT. My yarn wardrobe is filled with every color from the color wheel - well, almost. I am considering trying my hand at dyeing my own colors as our season moves towards summer. One would never know by my clothing wardrobe that I love color so much, as it mostly contains black, white and various shades of taupe. I look at yarn colors in the same way that I look at my Prismacolor pencils - tools to create. Although my "yarn" tools are beginning to take up far too much space. They also collect kitty hair if I am not careful~

    (Skip this section if talking about color bores you!) My newest yarn colors are Peaches & Cream Baby Blue (which is about the nicest light blue that I have found so far), a cone of that yummy Pink Lemonade that I have used before, more Apple Green, and Butterscotch. I could have sworn that I ordered Celery! Those shopping carts! I also hunted down a discontinued a Sugar & Cream Celedon. Some members of my KAL were nice enough to help me out with tracking down a long lost discontinued color. Celedon arrived and was close to the color I was searching for. It was not the perfect match - it needs just a bit more yellow. I don't know if it was simply a different dye lot from the color I had the tiniest scraps of - or if the color that I was searching for was altogether a different color still. Let me get my Pantone swatches out here...Celedon is close to Pantone 372 while the color I am searching for is Pantone 386. Any ideas???

     I want to take a moment to thank all of you for stopping by, and for offering your words, comments and encouragement. As I often say... knitters are a wonderful group of people. I wish you a day filled with joy.

Love your bright, cheery blog! I'm trying the vines cloth because it looks so good here. But I'm having a little trouble with the pattern . . . I know it must be the yarn overs - have you found that you get off on the stitch count?
