I am not sure when I first began to wear orange. I think it started about 12 years ago with an orange cardigan, not a hand knit, just a simple, plain sweater to add some color to my mostly black wardrobe.
These days, I wear a different orange sweater or my orange (hand knit) shawl, or my orange jacket. (Sadly my orange shoes are too worn out to wear and I have not found a replacement pair.) This month, I have more orange yarn on my needles. I have begun (again, first time I picked the wrong size) the Annabel cardigan. The simple garter stitch has been a good choice for my cluttered brain this last week. The needles are 10 1/2 and the yarn is chunky so it is going quickly. I am just an inch away from separating for the sleeves.
We have left the chilly temperatures behind for now, back to our “normal” wet and rainy conditions. A great reason to stay inside with a good book and some lovely yarn.
