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

Bare Naked

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM

      @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!
