And I finished.
Yes. Colour Affection.
Yes. I drank the Kool-Aid. Or, since I’ve been working on putting together the perfect colour combination since December, maybe I just finished knitting something that fulfilled my perfect pattern storm: unusual construction + beautiful and elegant shape + simple enough to not be married to the pattern, yet interesting enough to keep me going to the end + colour play.
The colours I chose have names that have a relationship to each other: I Made This Tape Special for Today (reminds me of every guy I went to high school with who gave me a mixed tape as a sign of affection. So many hours in old record stores…), Sailor Bait: The Official Lipstick of the 2012 Walk of Shame and Not a Suitable Date for a Mormon (named for a person I know who really isn’t. Trust us.) Basically the trifecta of a really bad first date. Don’t you think?
What I think is interesting is that the colours go really well together too. Hmmmm…let’s test this theory some more…
Click on the photo to see the names. I’m thinking this is the Snuff Shawl.
