Inspired by Jane Brocket's wonderful book, The Gentle Art of Domesticity, and Mason Dixon Knitting, I've been playing with color. I do think I naturally veer towards a muted palette, as in life I tend to be an understated person. But Brocket's book reminds me that playing is art and color is fun, especially unexpected color combinations.

It's taken me a while to come back to knitting, but now there's kind of a creative explosion going on around here. I've been doing some sewing too, and while the results are extremely amateurish I will post about it shortly.

I noticed today that my daughter has also been playing with color. That's one of the many great things about my kid: she reminds me that it's fun to wear pink pants blue shoes yellow beads and mismatched socks. She's got a real sense of style for such a young one.

And some more color play:
