White is in the air. Is it the snow? Is it the endless stream of cloudy days?
Last week I got this idea to knit up some Amelia dresses in different whites using different fibers. Then, I thought it would be fun to crochet up some springtime hats in white as a basic to go with lots of different colored dresses. Jeanne over at I Dream of Jeanne Marie posted about her white American Girl doll dresses on Friday (1-30-15). See, it’s all about white.
Giving a person who loves color an exercise of working solely with white is very difficult. I realized that when I design an ensemble my number one thoughts are about color and how to coordinate all of the colors together. When I started working only with white I had to think of other options such as texture and embellishments. It took me a while to get in the swing of things, but I eventually figured it out and learned a few things from this exercise.
It’s funny though, by the time I got to the fourth hat I had to sneak in a bit of pink.
