Queen of Green

Knitted Noro Silk Garden Scarflette

Lately, I'm the Queen of Green. I've been knitting and crocheting with yarn in the green, blue and aqua families. Many of my friends favor this side of the color chart, so I'm stock-piling greenish items for future gift giving!

I did complete something that is NOT green. It's an afghan for a special cousin's wedding, coming up in July. I'm calling it "Diamonds are Forever." This is an afghan pattern that I memorized decades ago. I've made variations of this pattern over the years.

What are you working on now? Do you find that you tend to make things in one color family?

Oh Mia! YOU are the Queen of Green. I'm just a Princess! Most of my friends call me Agent Orange!

I love the border on the "diamond" one! How did you make that edging? Is there a pattern, or is that from your head?

So pretty!!!

Hi Amy, Thanks for the compliments. The border for this afghan is from Doris Chan's "All Shawl" pattern. It's free on Ravelry. I just added a few more chains around the corners so it would fit.

I've got the blues lately...seems like I usually do during the summer months. I am finishing up a shawl in various blues, spinning yarns in blue and just generally gravitating toward colors of the sea and sky...

Hey Lady Lino! Great hearing from you and I'm so glad you're back to blogging! Blue is good! I must get back to my oranges, reds, burgundies and purples!!!

I do like the blue family. I find it's an easy color to wear and coordinate. I do love a good red though!
