Project Spectrum – August Pinks and Purples

First — Happy September!  August absolutely flew by for me.  Lots of things going on, lots of projects and reading, and little blogging.  I have a plan to change the blogging slump.  But before we get too far into September, I need to finish up a few things to do with August.

Project Spectrum 5 explores a different color for each month, May through November.  You can learn more by clicking on the link in the left sidebar.

Pink and Purple was the focus for August and I did pretty well on the fiber front.

Vineyard Moebius Cowl

I used Cat Bordhi’s video for my first moebius cast-on and improvised a combination of knit, purl and eyelet rows.  The yarn was the perfect colors and has a really nice feel.  There’s another picture on the Photo Blog.  Love it!  May have to keep it    🙂

Two-at-a-Time Toe Up Socks

I’m taking a two-at-a-time toe-up sock class with friends at The kNook.  The bright pink Cascade Cherub yarn isn’t a typical choice for me, but it was perfect for August and PS5.  This is an earlier picture.  I’m about half-way through the foot now.  Hopefully, two a time will help me avoid any more orphan socks.

Spectrum Crochet Squares

When I first started PS5, I decided to crochet squares in each month’s colors.  Not sure if they’ll become a pillow, a stool cover, or just stay in the jar.  I’m loving the way they look in the Ball jar on the shelf.

AND — There are several pretty photos of garden pinks and purples over on the Photo Blog — Petunia’s Friend, Morning Glory, and my favorite Peace Rose.

So . . . September’s color is yellow.  Perfect as we roll into Fall.

Enjoy your first day of September.  Keep an eye out for yellow as you go through your day    🙂
