Zingy or Calm? The Eternal Question
Still motoring away on Nancy Marchant’s Honeycomb Scarf.
I honestly don’t want to do much of anything except this. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Feeling a massive craving for a project that I can point to and say “This simple piece of knitting? Well there’s something I know how to do.”
I’m working with the Freia Honeycomb Scarf Bundle in the Summer colorway.
This honeycomb Scarf Bundle includes a Freia Shawl Ball in Orange Crush plus 4 Minikins: Aloha and Fuchsia (TOP ROW); Chameleon and Dusk (BOTTOM)
I’ve finished Minikin No. 1: Fuchsia and am now halfway through Minikin No. 2: Aloha. The last two Minikins, Dusk and Chameleon, are on the horizon, and I’m spending a lot of time wondering which one will be Minikin No. 3. Such a massive decision.
It started zingy.
And keeps on zinging.
It’s pretty zingy at this point. If I knew anything about color theory I’d tell you why it’s so zowie, but I don’t. My fundamental color theory is: Color is so awesome!
Meanwhile . . .
I continue to look longingly at Cristina’s version of the Honeycomb Scarf, which is a study in calm and subtlety.
This is one of the most beautiful textiles I’ve seen in a long while.
A pair of Freia Shawl Balls in Lichen and Ember. SIGH
It’s next on my list. There’s room in the world for wild and mild, right? What’s your vibe these days?
