Project Spectrum

Project Spectrum is coming around again. This year the theme is Cardinal Directions and Lolly has put together a group of themes that look really very inspiring. Go read about it.

I am already looking forward to March and considering how I might play with some Idea of North – which is something that might cause Gill to cough 🙂

NORTH (March/April)
Color: Green
Material: Stones/Gems/Rocks
Season: Winter
Element: Earth

There is much there to play with, either on the fibre front or in paper play or photography. I might even write this year, as I feel the urge to pick up my pen again overwhelming me from time to time.

Where will I find the time, though?

I am struggling to see how I might embrace PS in my knitting at this stage – this will require some thought. I do though find myself already excited at the notion of picking up my camera once more, and beginning an extended photo essay.

What I do know is that although a nicely yoked Icelandic sweater with shades of green in the colour work would fit perfectly in to this first segment – I shall not be working such a revolting garment just in order to fit in. PS must bend with me and fit my interests and tastes and my schedule. Ultimately it is more a question of raising my own creative awareness, rather than forcing myself into any mould. One thing I can do is review my Ravelry queue to see if I might change its order, or bring a new colour perspective to my pre-conceived project ideas.

I have already twigged that “East” might just be a very good excuse to blow some cash on some Noro yarn… and I believe I have just the right airy project in mind.

For completeness, and your information, the reminder of this year’s PS phases look like this:

EAST (May/June)
Color: Yellow
Material: Wood
Season: Spring
Element: Air

SOUTH (July/August)
Color: Red
Material: Metal
Season: Summer
Element: Fire

WEST (September/October)
Color: Blue
Material: Glass
Season: Autumn
Element: Water

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

      @ambermoggie, You are ahead of me there. Do I take it that Noro means “wood” ? If so – it’s a dead cert for a project for PS4!
