Coastal Colours

Don’t you just love it when your knitting matches the colours of the coast?

This was my recent holiday knitting, accompanying me out and about on my travels in Wales.

It didn’t match every location, but hey, that’s ok 😉

The yarn is Opal Zwerger 4 ply, in ‘Der Kleine Prinz – Auf der Flucht’ colourway, and I’m making a sock … Watch this space!

Does your knitting match the colours around you this week? I’d love to hear all about it!

  1. My afghan far from matches the colors around me (it’s pink and purple, for the most part). But I have knit with Opal before…it was a lovely black, white, and turquoise jacquard colorway.

      Maybe you’ll be able to spot a sunset with the pink/purple colorway to echo your afghan? Yes, Opal produce some beautiful colour combinations – always fun to knit! 😀

      • You know, I have seen some beautiful sunsets around here with all sorts of pinks and purples and orange, especially in the winter months. We’re in the middle of our summer/wet season right now, so we get more clouds than pretty sunsets this time of year.

    Yes! The silk-seacell I’m knitting exactly matches the cushions and hap on my sofa, a pale golden yellow…
    Last spring, my mom crocheted a blanket with the leftovers you’d given her plus a tiny bit extra and it perfectly reflected the Breton coast around us 🙂
    She says my knitting always seems to match me, somehow – I don’t do it on purpose but it does seem to frequently be the case that there would be a photo opportunity in that respect lol!!
    (if I knew how to include pics in comments, I would – any tips?!)

      Your silk-seacell sounds lovely – I haven’t heard that term/composition before, so I’ll go and check it out! I don’t know how to add photos to the comments box … It would be useful so if you do find out, please let me know and I’ll do the same if I find out first 😀

      I have been intending to write a post about that crochet project – when I get a round tuit I’l include a photo. Your work is, as always, beautiful.
