I am so tired of the snow, sleet, and cold wind. Spring cannot be here soon enough as far as I’m concerned. I find myself drawn towards spring color palettes and lighter weight fiber lately. Maybe if I will it, it will come…soon. Amigurumi in pastels, barefoot sandals, and Sophie’s Universe CAL are just a few of the items that have caught my attention lately.
My eyes and brain needs COLOR.This is unusual for me because I’m usually drawn towards more earthy, muted colors. I blame the snow. So. Much. Snow. All that crisp white fluff is now turning into a muddy mess.
And then there are the bunnies… Everywhere I look on the Internet lately someone is sharing bunny rabbit cuteness. The cats of the Internet have competition.
So, just like that catchy tune you can’t get out of your head until you give into the madness and just turn the knob up to 11 on that turntable and jam it out of your system, I knew the only way to get the bunnies and colors out of my head was to make them.
