That's what I'm going to try and do this weekend- find time to cast on some stitches and knit more than two rows. That has been my pattern for the past two months- knit two rows, get distracted by obsessing over part of the reno, pick up sock 24 hours later, knit 2 rows, repeat. So last night I picked a very-unlike-me color. I figure that something out of my norm might distract me enough from all that's going on, and coerce my creative side into taking over. So I picked the color that really caught my eye when I unpacked my first Madelinetosh Tosh Sock shipment last month. The color is so unlike my usual color choices. Any guesses which one it is?
This past week has been a time a making decisions and firming up plans before flooring goes in, which won't allow anything else to get done for a week. Lighting and electric decision are made, ducts hung, paint is up. You might remember that I initially decided on a Rich Cream (by Benjamin Moore) color for the walls of the store. After living with the samples on the walls for a week, I decided that the yellow-tinged cream with the mustard/olive tinged tile made for walls that were too warm. If I was striving for a space that would allow the natural light to show the true color of yarn, I should choose a less warm color for the paint, since the tile was already warm.
So I instead went with a color I'd call Oatmeal on the walls. You can kind of see the color in this picture, though there's just one coat on the walls. I'm more comfortable with this choice, as I don't feel like the space screams YELLOW. And, to me, this paint will allow the colors in the skeins to really be the focus. I also like that this neutral color is present in much of the terrazzo floor, so it all ties together.
