Greetings, all. I'm Cher, blogging at The Amazing Adventures of Tom & Bel (or on my own server when it's up).
I've got a fair amount of knitting and design experience, and have really stepped it up in the last few months for work.
I'm excited to participate in the Create Along because it's been a while since I created something just for me - my recent knitting has all been on deadline and to specifications that were not of my choosing. I don't regret any of that, certainly, but it will be exciting to 'free associate' in yarn.
Since every project needs some boundaries, however, my point of entry for this project is color. I absolutely love color --I read about it (Deb Menz' Color Works: incredible!), think about cool combinations of it and use it frequently in my work. But my personal wardrobe? A sea of solids. So I am challenging myself to get over my self-imposed addiction to monochrome knitting.
What better way than to work with the incredible array of color choices available in Cotton Classic? The picture above is of a few skeins that have been loitering in my stash, waiting for inspiration to strike.
Because I am Bigger Than a Breadbox (TM), I'll have to make some time to score enough skeins to make something Woman Sized. Should be fun.
