Contrasting Colors No More

November 29, 2018

It’s a little sad, but I may have a second opportunity…and this recipient just may be worth a little more cost in the yarn. But first, I have some exciting news: I am being published in The Central Review, Central Michigan University’s undergraduate literary journal! It is one simple poem entitled, “My dear Exploder (Yes, I Meant to Say Exploder),” and the release party is tomorrow night at 6PM. I’m excited and may make this short, because I still need to practice my delivery on this poem, and figure out where I’m stopping and starting and where to pause and if the tempo changes. Okay, time to take a deep breath. I can rehearse the reading later.

In the meantime, I’m working on the Indian Cross Scarf, because I gave up on the yarn company bringing in the right color green. I settled for a lighter color blend and do not love the lack of contrast. Wendy, the recipient, however thinks it looks just fine.  So, I will continue knitting and see how it comes out and if I have enough lavendar, or if I will return for more lavender, some turquoise or a darker purple to bring the contrast back and play with variegated colors. In the end, whether things go well, I think I’ll have a lovely scarf. Tell me what you think, ladies and gents. Until next time,

Happy Knitting
