About a month ago, I came across a very unique shade of brown. I did not buy it, pause a moment to appreciate my self-control, but I never forgot it. While knitting the black and neon green dish cloth, towel, and swiffer cover, I thought of a lighter green I had seen somewhere but couldn’t remember where. I found the light green, called Robin’s Egg. As soon as I picked it up, with no self-control whatsoever, I knew I needed to go back to JoAnn’s and buy the brown yarn. Nothing feels better than finding a reason to buy the yarn I so carefully reasoned myself out of buying. I love the results, not sure who will benefit from this lovely combination, but I knew I had to see the two colors together. The espresso brown, compliments the mint green beautifully.
So I decided to start a mitered dish towel for my mom. Not a good idea, while on painkillers. I think I took out the same rows 2 or 3 times….it’s still a little foggy so my count could be off. I think this is the slowest project I have knit in years…..focus Amy!! Thankfully I am nearly done and might even surprise my mom with it, as a gift for their final walk through on their new home. It was knit to celebrate her new choice in kitchen decor that I have to say, I love. It’s about time she picked blue, my favorite color. I do believe I still have nightmares about the 70’s orange kitchen of my childhood, fully equipped with orange Tupperware, orange-flowered wallpaper and I can’t recall but I am pretty sure the curtains were orange too. My favorite room in the house, the color of the one fruit I don’t particularly like. Now, after all these years, I’m now 15 years married, my mom has finally come to her senses and picked the best color ever. I am really looking forward to helping her decorate the kitchen….the rest of the house she is on her own, unless she wants a knit afghan.
