Project Spectrum

I can’t believe the six months of Project Spectrum are over. It has been a whirlwind of colour. Unlike a normal knit-along, this project spilt over into all accepts of crafting and even everyday life. You just have to look at the Flickrpool group to see how this project has inspired people to find colour all over the place.

One of the added joys of this project has been the Postcard Swap. Over the last six months, I was introduced to six new bloggers. They impressed me with the cards they have sent. Which, in turn, has made me feel embarrassed with the poor quality of cards I have sent them. At the moment, my final card is somewhere over the Atlantic, winging its way to Jody at Java Jem.

Round-up of Project Spectrum

September has become the left-over month for Project Spectrum. A time to finish up projects from all the previous months. This is going to be great for me. The only projects I finished were my pink capelet, the two-tone pink socks and green surprise socks for my sister’s birthday.

As I didn’t really make anything in April. Yellow and Orange aren’t really my colours. So it was easy for me to finish my pink projects from March. However, May was a little harder, as I only just managed to finish the green socks on the last day of May. 

My list of unfinished projects is still pretty long. In June, I linked Project Spectrums theme of blue to my World Cup Knit Along project. And attempted to knit a blue cardigan. That project is almost finished.

I believe Lolly is thinking of repeating this project next year. I would strongly recommend it to all crafters. It has made me more aware of colour. I see it everywhere, in nature, whilst crafting, and even in simple things like a cup or hotel room. If you still need convincing about this project, check out the Flickr group. It has become a place for inspiration, exploring new techniques and a source of new knitting patterns. As well as other people wonderful finished crafting projects.
