Need New Colours

This holds in life in general right now as well as for crafting. I’m so so unbelievably sick of all this dreary weather.

My copy of Color in Spinning arrived this morning, which is doing a lot to help with the doldrums. It’s such a great resource, but right now all I’m doing is looking at all the bright and pretty pictures and wishing it was like that outside right now.

I’m also thinking I need to start messing with colours that I normally don’t think to use. On Wednesday during weaving class I realized I inadvertently chose the same colours for my scarf that I used for my Endpaper Mitts last year. This is great because I will have matching outdoor wear, but it really cemented the fact that I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately.

    When I get in a rut with design, I try and pick a colourscheme filled with at least one colour I don’t like. It forces me to get more creative, and the results are usually pretty decent, or at least interesting.

    at least the snow is starting to melt! Soon enough we will start getting a few blooms.

    I love the colours in this.
