Enhanced Colour

I am still on my hat-knitting fad and have been very surprised by the way in which my awareness of colour has become very much enhanced by the whole thing.

If I am knitting with lilac yarn, I seem to see lilac colours all around me in nature, not so much in non-natural settings.

My latest creation is multicoloured, as you can see:

While working on it, I kept seeing similar types of combinations out on my travels. This is one example:

And, I can’t resist yet another fairy door:

Yes, call me a mad hatter, if you want!

      1. One of my favorite things that I knitted was a woven wall hanging using different colored yarn so that every one that I made looks different ( I did two)..Also knitted tea cozies with flowers on the top came out very attractive. I also have made necklaces and season miniature wreaths wall hangers. I tend to go for things that are different looking. I have done sweaters/scarves/fingerless gloves and slippers along with dishcloths in the past. I do enjoy knitting…Thanks to my Mother in law ..My Mom was a crochet enthusiast and I never could get the hang of holding that hook…

        1. It certainly does flow differently.
          We’re doing pretty well, thanks. Tramore is a small town but is a hugely popular tourist resort so is absolutely packed if there is even a sniff of the sun. The case numbers here are on the rise again as reopening is happening.
          Take care!

  1. I took an interior design course many years ago, and I always recall one class on colour that advised to look to nature for colour combinations. You’ve certainly achieved this in the hat! Beautiful!

    1. Hi Roy, I thought I replied to you yesterday but see that I was writing to myself. Glad you like the impact of the hat. It was deliberate!
      Hope you weren’t took upset re the hurling.
