MARCH ======= RED

I am a stereotypical City Chick. Most days, the palette runs deep, down right to the Brown, Black and no other. My body’s the baseline; the clothes the wrapper that SNAPS to large attention with just a touch of color.

Knitting is freedom like that. You can put on one small scarf and all of a sudden your eyes sing.

Or, you can brush away the shadows of your shoes with a stroke of Tone and You Dance!


It has been thrilling to see all over the knitWeb the way people are taking this to the streets. I knew I would probably not be able to be a Calendar Girl and commit to a Project-a-Month but I told Lolly I thought I could dabble in May (hmmm… GREEN!) and dance with a few others as well.

This is my Red.


And its red, burgundy, purple and blue! But when you see it from above, it’s the Red that wants you.

The dark cool Blue recedes and moves away.

This is Twinkletoes yarn from eBay seller lotusblossom (Over the Rainbow Yarns). Sadly, I don’t have the color info anymore

hmmm… Margene has meme tagged Red Around the House!
