Color Intensity & the Noro Wisp

Mid May morning

It's really beautiful here this morning. The rains have turned the grass, tree leaves, and other foliage various shades of achingly edgy, bright shades of green. Whenever the sun decides to peek out from behind the clouds, it's almost too intense to look at....aahhhh - lovely spring colors!

The spring flowers are fading, but still offer glimpses of colorful beauty. Even faded, who can resist the combination of green and purplish-pink?

That's how I feel about one of my current knitting projects. It's Wisp scarf/shawl from (free pattern!).
Noro Wisp

The simple lace pattern shows off the colors of the Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn perfectly. I'm having a hard time putting it down - which is a good thing, because I'll be giving it as a gift soon. Hopefully, unlike the spring flowers, these colors won't fade away!

Wisp is a very neat pattern. And not being able to put down the project is a good thing. It means you matched yarn and pattern perfectly!

Bugga- the login didn't work and lost my comment about liking the colours both in lacy knitting and photos. autumn here- gold leaves and green grass with the seasonal rains after the drought.

Oooh that is a very pretty pattern. I have some noro that I haven't decided what to do with it yet.. maybe I'll try that!
