Manic!

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!

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…

    • Stephanie, I am totally crazy for Brazilian choro music, although its worlds apart from Peruvian pan pipes & charangos 🙂 Glad your curiosity is tickled… xx

    • Oh Stefanie, I bet you recognized the ukulele-looking instrument, the high strumming ‘cavaquinho’ … well, just so you know the origin that ukulele came from that instrument… the Portuguese instrument has steel strings, and the ukulele, as you probably know, has nylon. 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
