PRETTY PASTELS

We all know how our eye is immediately attracted to bright, strong colours, but this month I would like you to think about the shrinking violet, the gentle yellow cowslip or the pale green euphorbia.

Maybe they don't have the same eye-catching power as the vibrant purple iris or a brilliant red rose. but they, too, are beautiful in a quieter, more tranquil  way. This is the gift of the pretty pastel colours.

They are found everywhere: in nature, in our clothes, in fashion, in our food

.........and quite definitely in our yarn.

 

 

How many of you remember the delicious sherbert flying saucers,or the candy alphabet sweets?

 

All these beautiful colours can be used alone or in contrast with the more vibrant colours.

 

 

Even if you prefer your colours bright and vibrant, just for once try the pretty pastels. They will be pretty with variegated yarn or as PJ’s for the November Pattern of the Month.

They're really ZEN!  You never know you might become addicted.

Good luck. How I sympathise with you!

Valerie,

Thank you for hosting this theme.  I was wonderful to see everyone's soft and warm creations. This just goes to show you, that all colors are beautiful.  I cannot wait to see all the blankets with these squares in them.

Thank you Ay. I, too, look forward to seeing lots of lovely PASTEL blankets!!

Adding a blanket by Grace Weir and her friend Thelma.  It is never too late to add such a beautiful blanket to the theme :-)

This blanket is another joint effort with my friend Thelma.
She has knitted these beautiful squares and I have completed the sewing up and edging...

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
