Project Spectrum 3 has begun, the inspiring element is fire. The corresponding colors are red, pink, and orange. My knitting project is the Puff Sleeve Feminine Cardigan from Fitted Knits. I am making this in Knit Picks merino style in 'hollyberry'. My camera and I had a heated debate over the exact shade of the yarn and although my polite, but color blind, camera insists on a pinkish tone, the yarn is truly a deep cranberry. That is, if a cranberry can be deep. They tend to float about in cliques don't they?
I will be gifting this sweater to myself for my birthday which is very soon. I will also keep an eye out for fire colors in my environment and share what I find with you. If this dark rainy weather doesn't lift soon you will be viewing the jar of pasta sauce in my fridge that I keep meaning to throw out.
I am having trouble sleeping. I blame it on the impending solar eclipse. I wish I were unphased by the moon's antics, but I fall helplessly under her spell. So, I am more sleep deprived than usual and slightly anxious. I suddenly remembered a handsome foreign man read my palm when I worked at a pharmacy 12 years ago. He said many accurate things, but the one I recall vividly now was, " Your life will begin after you turn 35." Next week, I will turn 35. I wish he had just told me when I was going to die. That would be much less worrisome. At least then I would know what to expect.
