Spring has sprung and the flowers are blooming. Lots of trees are in full flower. Looking around the lush environment inspires me in my knitting. I am a lover of earth tones. Primary brights make my eyes hurt, usually. Someone asked me how I could combine orange and purple and like it, based on my usual color preferences.
I found the answer in my own yard. Nature's palette is my foundation for many of the projects I create. It is the colors that do not occur in nature that are the least likely to attract me. So primal and instinctual. We are such animals at our core. Grrrr, gotta go knit...
