I’m feeling a bit of a colour jag coming on, so I thought it was only fair to warn you that there might be a bit of a theme over the next little while.
Yeah. I know it’s spring and that colour says fall, but I can’t help it. I’ve been seduced. I have projects planned in other colours too, but at least one of those is secret (this year I am going to be on top of Christmas, dammit) so it’s going to be mostly orange, most of the time for the next little while.
The weird thing, though, is that I didn’t plan this, or even realize it, until I was getting myself organized. I briefly thought about switching the yarn for Willowherb to this one, but then I thought about it and decided that those socks really wanted to be orange. Then I thought about not knitting Daphne right after, but I’ve been wanting a pair of these since I finished the first ones I knit, so that wasn’t an option either. And Grace was always going to be this colour. So, yeah. Orange.
Does this happen to you? I sometimes go on unintentional thematic runs in the books I read, but so I feel like I’ve been okay about mixing up my knitting colours. I suppose, though, that once a stash reaches a certain size, colours just rise to the top of their own accord. That’s probably it, right? I mean, this is basically all the orange yarn I own, so the fact that I’m planning to knit it all in the span of a few months means it decided it was time (my yarn is sentient I guess?).
Sigh. I’ll figure something else out for October.
