Desperately Seeking Colour

It's only September, but already I feel as though I need more colour in my life. November, the dark days of December, and the grey desolateness of February are a long way away, but in this pandemic year my soul is seeking snippets of joy. It's why the helianthus of two posts ago screamed at me as I walked past. It's why this red-tipped grass,

 and these crabapples caught my eye while Bill and I were out walking after lunch. 

You can see where this is going, can't you. I want NEED to design something new with eye-catching colour. Do you have a favourite colourful knit? I'm looking for inspiration...


  1. You're not the only one craving a bit of color. Two days - or rather nights - ago I fell down the Rabbit Hole at 3AM & bought Briggs & Little Heritage in RED for a winter sweater. Heritage does cables, bobbles & popcorn textures very nicely but I may just have to do a simple top down in garter for a cuddly sweater instead.

  2. What a coincidence. I was looking at B&L just yesterday, thinking about Zora in their Red Granite.
