Finding a Color Combination that Works

I spent some time at the mall today, aside from picking up some awesome new jeans that fit like a dream, I also spent some time scoping out some great inspiration.

I have a hard time just going to the yarn store and picking out a combination of colors that works well.

Something that helps me with this challenge is to check out the color combinations in retail stores.  When I find a combination I like, I take a picture with my phone and hang onto it until I am in need of color ideas.

I found two sweaters today that offer some beautiful inspiration.

The first one is a kimono from Sears.  The color combination is teal, coral, fushia, black, and off white/creamish.

Relaxing this Monday

Today I am going to enjoy a little crochet in my happy place, and I would argue, perhaps one of the most beautiful places on earth.  This is a view of Lake Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. Typically it is not this hazy here, however, Washington, Idaho’s neighbor to the west has been experiencing a surge in forest fires this summer.

I am still working on recovering from what I have now affectionately termed “Sweater-gate,” and am progressing fairly swiftly.  I can’t wait to share my progress tomorrow!

So where did your adventures take you and your fiber fun this weekend?

Happy Hooking and (k)Nifty Knitting!
