This project confirms to me how much I love bright colors. I often tell myself . . you’re a granny now . . you should wear more subdued colors, but I love brights and I think as we get older, it’s more important to wear things and do things that make us happy. It reminds me of a story I’ve shared here many times . . when we lived in Kentucky, our quilt guild did a quilt and I quilted several for others. Amanda’s was done in earth tones and it was very pretty. I showed it to Vince and he said “Why can’t you make one like that?” I smiled . . very proud of myself. I said “Oh, I did!” and brought it out and showed him.
He had a questioning look on his face. I asked “What’s wrong? This is the same quilt – just different colors.” He was trying to not be hurtful but he said “Everything you make . . you use clown colors!” I had never thought much about how often I used brights and I’ve always said Vince’s favorite colors are dark brown and light brown.
So, here’s my ADVENTurer Wrap – in clown colors!
Those colors were actually all in the “Brights” kit so I didn’t even pick them on my own. Can’t blame me! 🙂
The yarn is all Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light and as I look at some of the colors in there, I’m thinking . . I wish I would have bought more yarn because there are some gorgeous colors there that I didn’t get. Can’t get everything, right? Dang it!
