My knitting has been suffering recently – first from my sore wrists and more recently from a total lack of ability to get things just the way I want them. There is a pattern I’ve been working on – it’s only small, but I’ve restarted four times. I’m starting to doubt whether it will ever be off my needles.
To vent some frustration at not being creative enough, I’ve been working with my yarn colours, including flourescents, to come up with some designs. I’ve seen plenty of splashes of flourescent stripes/flowers/motifs and entire glowing outfits in the Summer…
and rather surprisingly, this throw-back from the 80s has stayed for the Winter too.
In case you’re wondering, the men have not been spared either.
It set me thinking whether there is a tasteful way that very bright colours can be incorporated into knitting. The odd stripe here or pompom there is one thing. But entire outfits? Never. However, I did find these lovelies.
I’m not at all suggesting that they should be worn together!
What do you think? Would you ever wear or design something with really bright colours? And what would it be? Let me know!
