Since writing about ‘ an old beloved brown thing ‘ I’ve been pulled into a vortex of unlikely colors; of cochineal pinks & crimsons, madder reds, purples, citron yellow, and oranges too… all sorts of high altitude Andean colors I am not accustomed to.
I find myself falling back into the safety of greys, of earthy tones and of muted undyed comfort. I gotta bust out! I didn’t realize how sensitive to color I really am, so I am struggling with my habitual knitting au natural , while trying to be influenced by the brazen & magnificent color palettes of Peruvian textiles. I am knitting through piles of these South American motifs while experiencing a sensory challenge with color.
… soon to explode through the surface with a splash!
(and of course, a pattern)
My favorite manic music of South America (although down in the temperate eastern coast from the Andes)… have a listen & maybe you can pick up some of my manic vibe…
