On this cold, dreary January day, I’ve decided that 2014 is going to be my year of color. I want to experiment with all kinds of color combinations, and get a bit out of my comfort zone. I recently discovered http://design-seeds.com/. Wow! Talk about inspiration. I have to be careful or I’ll find myself spending hours going through the different color combinations. Another great site for inspiration is Attic 24 at http://attic24.typepad.com/.
Last year I mostly concentrated on shawls. I crocheted and knitted them, designed them, and started one after another throughout the whole year. This year I seem to be leaning more toward motifs resembling handmade Spanish tile. The more color, the better. I predict colorful shawls, scarves and blankets in my work basket.
To get my year of color started, I participated in a hexagon blanket crochet-along Ravelry. We used a pattern called Hexagons by Julie Yeager. You can find the pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hexaghan. Here’s a photo of my finished blanket.
I haven’t been keeping up with my blog like I should. I hope to do a better job this year by adding more content, tutorials, and inspiration for all my fellow yarnies.
