The longest Time (wool we've had the longest and overlooked)
Oh Karen, I have no overlooked yarn anymore. I got to the bottom of my stash this month and I'm having to start collecting again. A great feeling though.
2020 is an Olympic year. Let's celebrate the games and sports. Country flags, balls, shoes...
Transportation. Anything that moves, bikes, cars, trains, rocket ships, wagons, helicopters and the like.
Thank you, Karen and Amy.
The Longest Time sounds like fun....and I have LOTS that could be included in that category. :))
I had this nagging feeling in the back of head that there was one that had been mentioned that I had forgotten.....the Olympics!!! Thanks Amy. :))
LOVE the transportation theme. I had been thinking 'planes, trains and automobiles just this arvo while I was ironing...yes, I iron....the last of the dinosaurs....hahaha.
Definitely not the last - I have my ironing board up as I type - about to start on a load of bed linen!
Definitely the music one - that was great fun. Also knowing in advance would give us lots more planning time.
Maybe something simple like favourite colours.
What about sweets? Candies? There are so many bright colours in Smarties and M&Ms as well as the stripes of seaside rock candy sticks and humbug sweets. The stripes of candy canes at Christmas and of peppermint sweets with their green and white. I am sure we all have favourites from when we were a child (mine was a boiled sugar sweet called Yorkshire Mixtures - and I have all the fillings to prove it!) that we can recall as we knit them. Maybe we could include things like barley sugar twists and out a cable into our squares.......... This could be a good one to generate a lot of stripes or PJs.
Glad to see so many have mentioned stripes! They are my favourite to knit (does that mean I have a short attention span ? - get bored after a few rows of one colour). How about Stupendous Stripes?
Thank you, Patricia, Rebecca and Anne. I LOVE stripes and bright colours. :))
I love stripes too Anne :))
Single colour themes always seem to go down well - lots of scope for all abilities, from PJs to elaborate designs. Of course, if we 'Go for Gold' it could link up with the Olympic suggestion :)
Another good idea, thank you Lesley. :))
Thinking of linking, perhaps with a title of Go For Gold, we could have the colours of the rings, etc, PLUS Gold, Silver, Bronze or yarn that is close to those colours.
Ooh, I LOVE it when we all bounce ideas around.
Keep them coming please, Everyone. :))
