So, I am still very pleasantly immersed in garter stitch stripe happiness. I wasted no time after I found the perfect peachy sherbet colour to start a stripe with it!
It is very pretty, and there's something I find thoroughly elegant about the way garter stitch stripes look as they unfold. Especially because I'm working all of the stripes the same width, it seems extremely ordered and tidy.
Normally, I'm not much of a warm palette person. If I had ever had my "colours" done, I'm certain I'd be in the "cool" range, where they tell you to wear blues and grays and greens. Although I LOVE warm sunny yellow and bright happy coral,
and I do wear plenty of those, I have very little red or orange clothing.
Despite that, I'm finding the "warm" end of this spectrum blanket (which I've now decided it will be... I cannot bear to arrange the colours other than in rainbow order, and I'm crossing my fingers that it won't end up looking cheesy) to be entirely delightful.
Bright, cheerful yellow will be up next, and I think it's going to be just perfect.
