These days, I’m all about finding joy in the little things.
And sometimes that joy . . . comes wrapped in a bright pink + neon green color combo.
That you can wear.
If it makes you happy
It can’t be that bad!
Y’know . . . I have had Isabell Kraemer’s Humulus sweater on my list-of-things-to-knit since it first came out (years ago now). It’s that charming little hops design, y’know? (You did know Humulus lupulus is the botancial name for hops, didn’t you?) Not only does it look great in the yoke of that sweater, but . . . how perfect is it for a beer-drinking wife of a home brewer, huh?
My Humulus hang-up . . . for all these years . . . has been what COLORS to knit my version of the sweater in. I have gone back and forth. Back and forth. Forth. And. Back. I have dreamed up many a color combo for this sweater. I’ve pulled yarn out of my stash. I’ve let it sit on my sewing table to “stew” for a while. But always, always . . . I haven’t been able to settle.
Until I finally decided that bright pink + neon green would do IT.
It made me so happy . . . to knit AND to wear.
Color for the win!
So . . . bottoms up, my friends!
