A panoply of neutrals

Yesterday I managed to not only get three loads of laundry done, but I also made substantive progress on my second granny square storage basket.

Today, when the morning’s errands and chores were done and consigned to the rear-view mirror of my life, I got out my hooks, my yarn, and the not-quite completed basket and set to work.

My efforts did not proceed perfectly, but they did proceed, and shortly before sunset I had all of the remaining ends woven in and trimmed and was able to get this photo of a view from the side:

As my regular readers know, these colors are not the palette I customarily work with. It lacks the blues and oranges and pinks and reds and yellows and greens and purples that typically dominate my work, but I felt called to make this basket so that it would coordinate with the things that will be put in it.

It can be a bit uncomfortable and even a bit unnerving to work so far out side my color comfort zone, but I am not unhappy with the result, and it just might propel me to try even more experiments with neutrals.

  1. I love these neutrals! I love all colors! There is always a place for certain color combinations.

  2. This combo is so soothing to my eyes and heart. Much as I love your bold statements in color, this basket much more identifies where I am in life right now. Not blah or bland, rather content and calm and quiet(er).
