Knitted Spring Bunting

For almost the entirety of my life I have been an Autumn/ Winter person. My birthday is at the end of October, then there’s Halloween, then Bonfire Night, then Christmas. So, it’s always been a time of year with lots going on. But it wasn’t just the things, it was the feel of Winter I loved. The dark days and bleak weather, the fire on, a cup of tea in hand, a book by my side, fairy lights, relaxing music, TV OFF! You get the picture….

Summer was OK but Spring was always boring. The pastel colours were average, the symbolism sickening – eggs = new life = get me my sick bag!

Now…I am fed up of the dark. I want the light and going out in a jumper or t-shirt not woolly (handmade) scarf and winter coat. I want summer shoes and windows open and birds singing and bright, happy colours now that the dark reds, gold and fir greens are over with.

To that end I have started a quick and easy bright project which I shall call my Spring Bunting.

Knitted spring bunting on the go…Jan 2017

Pink, green, yellow and pale blue.

Knitted in case it wasn’t obvious (sorry about the bad lighting…obviously I waited until all the natural light had gone to take the pic!).

So, that is my new project / what I am working on craft wise. I have also knitted myself a crochet hook holder and am just sorting out the sewing bits to do.

Have a good weekend, Ellen x

    I tend to knit bright colors in the winter, when everything is gray. Actually I knit bright colors most of the time. I just like them. But I know what you mean about being in the mood for the colors you are working with. I definitely go through phases where I want to be doing something specific. Can’t wait to see what you make.
