The color for August for Project Spectrum is pink and suddenly I'm seeing pink everywhere!…
As I’m sure we’re all aware, yesterday was the start of Lolly’s Project Spectrum. When Lolly announced this idea, I decided I would use each month’s color scheme to define my sock knitting for the month. See, um, I sort of have a lot of sock yarn. In a lot of colors. And sometimes I have a really hard time deciding which sock yarn to knit next. So, with Project Spectrum as my guide, I figured I’d able to narrow things down a bit.
Here’s my Ruby Red Socks for the month of March.
Yes, that’s one finished sock because I started these last month. But I will finish them this month and they’ll be finished Red Socks which will cover not only the Red Hot Sizzling Socks knit along but also my PS requirements, too.
Turns out, though, that PS is spilling over into other areas of my life. I’ve been spinning.
That’s the Chocolate Covered Cherries that I bought at SPA from Amy of Spunky Eclectic. Dude, it’s a lot of pink. But there’s enough brown mixed in to make me happy, ya know?
And I started a new shawl.
That’s the wee beginnings of the Seraphim Shawl, beautiful designed by Mim, in Fleece Artist Silk Stream from Redbird Knits. Color: Rosey. It’s silk and wool and I love the way it feels. Kind of nubby and like raw silk but mostly like wool. Good stuff, that. And, she’s having a sale that ends today.
There’s been other red things, too, including a finished Log Cabin quilt. (no, I didn’t take a picture of it last night when Lois and I were working on it. You’ll just have to trust me – it’s really pretty and there’s lots of red!) This will be raffled off at this weekend’s Dale and the Duds dance to benefit Dale’s Boy Scout troop. Anyone going to be in my area and want to have a fun night out with the chance to win a beautiful scrap quilt? Lemme know, cuz I’ve got tickets.
