  1. I am working with mauve in STR and the ever favorite blue in Blue Glacier Cowl. Blues are my favorite.

    1. Blues are the favorite for a lot of people. We sell a lot of blue here! There are such pretty blue options.

    1. I’m starting a Wollmeise project tonight – but with a grey and a burgundy. Maybe I should be knitting with something more spring-like right now…

  2. Both of my projects this week are bright colors. Think highlighters. I think it cures the winter doldrums and reminds me spring is coming.

  3. Having just finished a project, I think I may need to start in on the lovely Cascade Heritage Wave yarn in purple for my Loopy Academy project. Obviously, as if #3 above wasn’t proof enough, my favorite color to knit with is purple!

    P.S. It makes me so happy when one of my projects is selected! I share these posts on Facebook, declaring “I’m Loopy Ewe famous!” 🙂
