Sometime in March I start craving color. Everywhere I go, I’m drawn to it. At the grocery store I wander through the produce and floral departments just soaking it in. On Main St. I window shop next season’s clothes, the prints and bright spring colors elevating my gray mood. And, finally, I get stuck on the internet.
Well, I guess stuck isn’t the best word because I’m thoroughly enjoying myself and I do set a time limit so as not to interfere with actual work time. But the internet is a wonderful resource for color inspiration, when the outdoors just hasn’t caught up to your requirements. I love to browse websites like Design Seeds, whose color palettes keep me clicking. The user-generated palettes of COLOURlovers offer not only a wide variety of color combinations, but also interesting proportions of those colors.
Today, I thought I’d try my hand at coming up with a few palettes of my own, in anticipation of an upcoming stripey project. I’m thinking either a ripple blanket, some granny stripes or Greenway from Comfort Knitting and Crochet Afghans.
