Took Deuce for a walk in Ken Gardens yesterday. The weather was glorious- a beautiful fall day. Warm and sunny. Anish Kapoor had an installation called C-Curve 2007 which consisted of convex and concave mirrors.
I’ve been remiss with my monthly FOs – I think the last one was back in May! I had 2 FOs in September (Annis in Bugga! Blowfly, and A Pretty Thing in Skein Queen Opulent). I’ve got a new one, just in time for the shorter, colder days. Ysolda’s Cairn (Rav link) in Jade Saphhire Cashmere (Green) and Colourmart Cashmere (brown). I’m in love with it – I made it a little longer to make it less a beanie and more a bit of a slouchy hat.
At first, the honeycomb pattern really gave me the heebie jeebies (it make me think of bugs.. which I really really don’t like), but it’s really grown on me now. I’ve finished the first of a pair of matching fingerless mitts to go with it so my hands can be warm too for when I walk Deuce. And of course, because the green is my favourite chartreuse yellow (apparently named after a French liqueur) it goes with my new colour obsession which I’ve been trying to capture IRL – and it seems Tricia was right – it’s best seen in dead/dying leaves. Such as this one:
Compare to the Juno Fibre Arts Alice Lace, and the Koigu I got at Ally Pally… along with a scarf I bought in Paris this August
Definitely a bit obsessed. LOL am glad to find that Asti also shares my love for this weird colour!
