More snow’s in the forecast – could you use a little knitspiration?
Our snow is over (for now) on the Eastern Seaboard, but there’s a blizzard forecast for the Midwest. I love snow, but I’m sure most folks have had enough of it.
We feature Red Birds in Snow because it’s a nice nod to our state bird here in North Carolina, the cardinal, which gives a lovely burst of color to the monochrome landscape. I also love it because it’s a good reminder that noticing the things around us is a good antidote to the winter doldrums. Seeing something so bright in an otherwise gray day can snap the world back into focus.
When we’re feeling trapped behind closed doors, it’s important to notice the things around us to bring texture and color back into our lives. These designs are perfect examples.
Imagine running your fingers over this. Or over the ridges in her Alcott laptop cover.
If you still need to chip away at the ice, here’s a beautiful blend of saturated color with a touch of texture.
Blue Frame is available individually or as part of our newest e-book, Classic Shades Studio Shots. It’s beautiful in this subtly shading blue, but we just got in a brand new color that feels very wintery – color 745 Unreal.
Glacier blue and a rich Spring violet accent the winter gray. Can’t you imagine this blend of the best of winter in this classic cardigan?
Finally, a pop of color on a field of gray.
Like Red Birds in Snow, this has a bold burst of color to chase away the blahs.
If you’re stuck inside, we hope you find something luxurious to knit or crochet to bring you joy.
