Knitting & Crochet Week - Day 1: Color Lovers

This week is the 3rd annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week!  Since my blog has been mostly about fiber crafts I decided to play along.

Added bonus:  Maybe I'll actually get my blogging mojo going & have regular posts. . . ahem.

Today is all about color.  What we love.  What we don't love.  What inspires us to create.

For me, inspiration always comes from nature.

It is well-known around these parts that a manicure is wasted on me.  I'd rather be digging in the dirt, turning the compost or picking veggies - and I despise wearing gloves.

I like to enjoy my first cuppa on the front porch, listening to & watching the world wake up around me.

This spring, it seems to be all about the green.  I'm certain that going through the Great Drought of 2011 has affected my perspective.  It seems that everywhere I look, I see at least a dozen vibrant shades of green.  Perfect to showcase the new life abounding this spring.

Even the little caterpillars are green!

This spring has inspired many ideas, sketches, swatches and more. . .
