|Not the chicken, the African Flowers - isn't it fabulous, so very happy!|
I had originally told myself that I was going to work on my Mission shawl that is due by Sunday the 13th but instead, I worked on my Quidditch because the colors made me super happy.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Mission but when I show the finished pictures, you will understand what I am talking about because I had to go undercover and create something that will keep me well disguised. Which in my case, that means working with muted colors. I did not realize how badly I craved color until I started this grey project. I love grey. I think it is a beautiful and underutilized color but if you look at my projects that I've made since I started this grey shawl, you will see the other extreme because they have all been done in neon yarns. Funny to think how a color can do that, isn't it.
There are still a few more days left in the pattern book giveaway and the final two yarn giveaways (here and here) so be sure to toss your name in the hat. I promise you, this pattern book will blow your mind! Once I'm done with my shawl, I've got my University of South Alabama blue ready to go for little Miss Rebecca - we had to pick a neutral team to keep the family peace... since we were all Jags at one point, it seemed fair.
Happy Monday and I hope the holiday weekend motivated you too!
