It never grows old to see my designs transformed through someone else’s colour choices, and I found it beyond exciting to see all the glowy gradient aesthetics of Flombre transposed from blue/pink into green/yellow-orange (yorange?). In Marilee’s version the motif is really clear and bright, and the hot yellows against the deep greens remind me of nasturtiums and marigolds.
I love it so! So autumnal, so much like sparklers and bonfires, like spicy teas, like pine forests.
Happily, finding this finished project online led me to several blog posts by Marilee regarding the amazing creative things she has produced through participating in the club.
How fantastic are all these amazing versions of Patricia’s Brightlingsea motif? I love them all, and her special associations with different places for each colour combination. It’s also wonderful to see Nolwenn’s CHEERS! Mitts completely reimagined in a black and white and ice-cream palette of joy.
I am very busy this week laying out the final design in the KNITSONIK & Friends: Colour to Knit eBook and lots of things today have been quite disheartening – nothing major, just a lot of little frustrations – and I’d got into a real “WHAT IS THE POINT OF KNITSONIK ANYWAY” kind of mood… a mood, I must say, that was instantly fixed by this.
Thank You, Marilee, for sharing your process and creativity with us, and for letting me share this here –
YOURS IN FEELING SPURRED TO THE FINISH LINE,
