Yellow. Not a traditional Christmas color,
but both of these were taken right
around the big day.

Just outside our house during the storms
that kept us away from work and school
for a few days.

Cookies made by Fran in a successful attempt
to recreate Geri's classic peanut butter kiss
cookies. They were GOOD.

Tomorrow will be interesting. Pink is not
one of my favorite colors, but I'm sure
there's a bit of it in my Flickr photos.....

Idea stolen from here (cool blog) who was inspired by an idea from here (yet another cool blog!)
I'm slow to join the party, but I think the color week idea is so much fun that I'm playing anyway.

Blue for Monday (always a good choice): a knitted/felted backpack I made for Marion way back when she took ballet and needed a bag for her gear.

And Purple for Tuesday: hydrangeas in the backyard this summer.

More colors to come. I'll try to keep up.

Blue Moon mohair yarn in
Blarney Stone colorway.

Really sumptuous.

Tried 3 or 4 things with it and frogged it each time.

Finally got it right.

Cast on 100 stitches, size 6 circs.
Garter stitch till I had just a little left,
then did some drop stitch rows to open it up near the face.

For me!

Thanks again for the yarn, KT!
