These past few days I have been a little grumpy, I think it's that January feeling and just always being tired. I haven't felt inspired to start knitting a new pattern and have been grateful for the smallness of crochet flowers and BBC iplayer catch up of The Bridge
I have really enjoyed covering my wooden hangers with left over yarn in my stash, which is looking rather low on the stock front, may need to correct that sometime soon! I initially thought, happy, light, bright, beautiful Spring themed hangers full of the breathe of new life and waking up from the Winter, however my mood won in the end and my moody blues and greys were the first colours I gravitated to. I love blues and greys and despite maybe representing a darker side to me they make me feel very normal and if I say so rather happy and complete. I am pleased that I can accept that each day, depending on my mood my colour palette can change. I try not to think that I have a default colour, but if I was pushed it would be every shade of blue on this good earth. Teal, turquoise, Prussian blue all melts me away.
So enough blabbing, do you fancy seeing how I added pops of colour to my moody blues and greys? Here goes...
That very bright pink was far too zingy for the camera!
The bright blue flower in the centre is from Lucy's pattern May Roses. I love the idea of fields and fields of blue roses. The very bright pink centre flower in the photo below is also a May Rose and all the little flowers on the sides are Lucy's teeny tiny flower pattern.
The light pink rose in the centre was a pattern from this Nicki Trench book which I have on my crafty shelf. It was the first time I have ever crocheted the dtr stitch which sure is a yarn gobbler, but good fun with all that twisting and flicking of the hook.
So there we have it, my sweet and simple moody blues and greys with pops of hopeful pinks. I love that these are now going to have an important function in my domestic life and that they will remind me that it's good to give into your moods at times.
See you soon and thanks for stopping
