Yep it’s yet another shawl

I love colors but when I open my wardrobe it mostly consists of the happy color of …..black. I think it’s mostly due to the fact that I am a plus sized woman and was always told from an early age that black made you look slimmer. It also makes you look like you work in an undertaker business but I had to figure that one out for myself. It took awhile to do so. I felt secure in my black clothes and in the beginning color made me feel kind of vulnerable.

I decided to take the I will wear more color pledge and try to wear something colorful everyday. I haven’t thrown all my black clothes away though I just try to mix them with some color. Like a shawl! Since I am a compulsive shawl knitter it gives me lots and lots of opportunities to tell myself that I need to knit yet another one….

This is my latest, a bright blue with green crocheted border and tiny crocheted flowers in scarlet and orange. Knitted in a cotton and linen mix. Here I am wearing it with my new raincoat. The long sought after raincoat.

With colors like that I will be singing in the rain.

Take care

PS Are you interested in a colorful shawl of your own? Maybe I can knit one for you. Just drop me a line and we can discuss colors and a suitable prize tag.

  1. Jag gillar också färg, men har mycket svarta kläder också. Fint att matcha färg med svart. Din sjal lyser helt klart upp!

  2. You already joined the club, honey! Vi får hjälpa varandra att hålla den färgglada fanan högt. Det är så många som bär svart - det är väl ingen konst! Att gå ut i kycklinggult i november däremot...
