I’ve got the blues

I guess there is a color of the season. Blue. I seam to be obsessed with blue. I search for blue. I scan the yarn store and I immediately go for the blues. When I look back, this have been the case for quite some time now.

I think it started in January. I needed to knit a shawl in a hurry and came up with this.Rococo shawl
This is the Rococo Shawl by Elena Rosenberg knit with Merino Worsted from Malabrigo Yarn, color Paris Night.

Then it continued. In March the blues really started to just jump from my needles.

The aforementioned Cupcake Cutie Cap by Doreen L. Marquart (yes, I bet you are as tired of seeing this hat on the blog as I am of knitting it. It’s still a great pattern though, and the “frosting” is blue), knit in Drops Karisma from Garnstudio.

The Misty Meadow had blue in it

and my precious Windward. It’s all blue.

When I came back from the yarn store last week all I had was blue.

And it’s not just the yarn. I dress in blue. I bought blue shoes the other day.

I even drink blue tea!

I think this blue period is some kind of reaction – both to the fact that I really need to finish a project in burgundy red and that blue is said to have a calming effect and to give us a feeling of protection.

Apparentely it also inspires creativity.
