I have been playing with crochet a little bit off and on over the past few years. I usually knit. But a year of following the blog Attic 24 made me decide to take the plunge and start making something.
I brought this collage box I made with me to the yarn store to give me color inspiration. I envisioned making a cozy throw blanket to cuddle on the sofa.
The next few things were made by my youngest son and show how the color and pattern enthusiasm is percolating down to the next generation.
And now some more of the colors in our house, in the things we make and in the things we like. This is part of my wall painting in the kitchen...
and this is a piece of art I made using water-soluble crayons and water color paint.
This lampshade is by Altamira.
These glasses are from a local glass blower: Pean Doubulyu.
This pennant is by Kreatelier.
But while I was at the yarn shop, I veered away from my house colors. I think I was most influenced by what I was wearing.
I think I may end up making a granny square coat.
Will the bright orange get edited out? I'm not sure about the red, either, but I think I need it for a little color jolt.
It feels good, after our wonderful summer, to be playing with color again. Next week I will be back in the studio. I can't wait!
