What is Color Inspiration to You

Hi Knitters!

I’m always in the mood to create things that help in my color inspiration. Whether, it be paint chips (that I admittedly took in handfuls from Home Depot), Pinterest Mood boards, or browsing through magazines your neighbor hands you as you are getting in your car.

It’s all about color theory…basically, how to select colors that go together.

This lesson will be basic information that I hope you can take and use.

Imagine your caked yarn, or balls if that’s how you roll, 🙂 is organized around the color wheel.

 Most yarn companies are mindful of their colors, and making them compatible. We all seem to have our favorite yarn companies, the good news is, they have kept that in mind when selecting colors that work well together.

Designers, yarn companies, and other fiber gurus have figured out (for us) this color theory, so all we have to do is choose the colors we like.

Here’s the basic method:
Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel.  These are the colors that are near/next to each other and work well together. Generally sticking to 2, 3 or 4 colors.

Complimentary colors are done in pairs and sit directly opposite each other on the color wheel and pack a punch. This is my ideal way to choosing colors when I use the color wheel. I’d recommend going out to your craft store and picking one up. It’s a great tool to have in your box.

Split Analogous colors are the colors that are next to the complimentary colors. Example would be, choose your favorite color on the color wheel, zip straight across. The 2-4 colors on either side of that one color are the Split Analogous colors. Again, choosing 2 or more colors and sticking with every other color on the color wheel.

Another thing that works well, and is cheap (because any home store has walls of them for you to take) are the paint sample chips or cards. They have laid out similar tones on one sheet for you. Don’t even get me started on the hundred of crafty things you can do with them. I follow this board.  A blog post all it’s own. Hey, that would be fun to explore. 🙂 Though, this blanket is crochet, can you imagine the possibilities with knit stitches? Oh, how my mind works in so many mysterious ways.

*taking note as to a next blog post*

A Paint Chip Blanket

So, how about creating your own mood board, or perhaps collecting some paint cards. Get that inspiration flowing with a color wheel. Everyone is a photographer in some way, and I also believe everyone is a designer in some way, as well.

Get Creative and Knit ON, friends!

Book Review: Brioche Chic 22 FRESH KNITS for women & men

How many of us have always wanted to learn the Brioche stitch, but was too intimidated to try?

*raising hand*

Well, let me tell you, this book leaves you fearless when it comes to the ever-so-intimating Brioche stitch.

Author(s): Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark
Paperback: Brioche Chic: 22 Fresh Knits for women & men
Publisher: Interweave
Pages: 152 Pages
Retail Price: $26.99

Let me give you a virtual “tour” through the book:

The book opens with Brioche Basics. Ok, here you go…non intimidating step-by-step instructions that will leave you feeling as though you have worried for nothing. I, recently decided to break out my yarn and needles (shocking, huh?) and get to work on this stitch.

Magic!

It IS a bit of extra effort, but the minute you see the texture appear and your piece come to life, it will seem quite obvious.

Helpful tips along the way to ease the “pain” a bit. Go slowly! That’s what they suggest and that’s what I suggest.

Next appears the beautiful 22 patterns. The photography is awesome, with colorful yarns and simple textures. Everything from a basic Brioche scarf, to an Arrow Yoke Cardigan. 


Arrow Yoke Cardigan

Other projects in this book are pullover sweaters for both women & men…
A beautiful pair of mittens. It has a matching hat. So love this.
And this Star-Crown Beret is a definite in my que.
My love for knitting cowls is endless. I adore this project. It’s a Reversible Scarf, loop, circle. Wear long or wrap twice to create YOUR favorite look. 
What do you think. I’ve only given you a hint of what’s in this book, so you’ll run right out to your LBS (Local Book Store), LYS (Local Yarn Shop) or Interweaves website to get your hands on it. 
I give this book a *thumbs up* for photography, original design, creativity, and choice of projects. I feel it’s worth the buy and a chance to try a stitch you may or may not have tried. 
So, I bid you much love knitters, and encourage you to take a peek at this book. You won’t be sorry. I’m anxious to hear your thoughts.
Knit On!
Deb

Blogcast – Episode 2

If you’re a first time viewer, I want to say Thank You for checking me out. If you’re a returning viewer, I want to say Thank You for coming back.

Welcome
Virtual {HUG} from the Dishcloth Diva. Because, without (you), my readers, I wouldn’t be spending time writing this, showing you that, and chatting it up about whatever. 

For those that don’t know me, I’m Deb Buckingham, otherwise known as the Dishcloth Diva. I spend most days knitting and enjoying the process. I’m a yarn-a-holic, enjoy a good cup of coffee, and knitting in coffee shops and cafes. 


You can find me on Ravelry
I have a (mostly) Pattern Store on Etsy
I love to Tweet fun stuff
I enjoy sharing fun pics on Instagram
My boards are overflowing on Pinterest


Life is Good

Everyday is a gift in my opinion. It’s the part of life that I look forward to after each “sleep”. It’s another day to start over, if in fact your to-do list didn’t get touched because of lifes many adventures. A day to sit and ponder my next project, or just sit, knit, and sip on some coffee. 

I feel that I haven’t finished much, and my WIP’s continue to grow. But, for the most part, I’ve finished (some) stuff.

Life happens, right? I mean you get started on another project, only to be distracted by the fact it’s time to feed the husband. Don’t get me wrong, he’s as flexible as they get, but it’s the “wife” part of me, sometimes, that feels I NEED to cook for him. I set down my needles, and head to the kitchen where I discover the only thing available to make is mac ‘n cheese. So, what goes with that? Nothing…off to the store I go, I go, off to the store, I go!

I was able to go on a field trip with my granddaughter. That was loads of fun. 50 some 1st graders all pile out of a bus as I meet them at the Nature Center for our tour. We all sit Indian style on the floor in front of a puppet show. The kids really enjoyed it, and well…so did grandma. Then we were all arranged into groups and asked to follow the leader. There were 2 teachers and lots of parent volunteers. Good! It sure could be a challenge to keep an eye on that many. That was the highlight of my week!

WIP’s
Like I said, I feel like I have many more of these than I do Finished Object (FO’s). The one thing I really enjoy knitting on are socks. I’m working on the Jeck socks. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry. So easy to memorize. So much fun in self-striping yarn. I’m using a colorway called, The Meadow II by Fresh from the Cauldron. I picked it up at Stitches Midwest last summer. The perfect yarn for this pattern. Also, did you notice the matching fingernails. No, not planned.

FO’s 
I finished my husband’s socks. Yay! Long time coming. He’s been begging me everytime he sees me cast on (yet another) pair of socks. For me. The stripes matched up perfectly. I didn’t even try. Impressive, huh? The yarn I used was Diversity by Plymouth Yarns. The colorway is a red/grey/black/white combination. He picked it out, so I knew he’d love it. I have yarn in a pink/grey colorway that will be mine when I have time to cast on.

 

Diva Enables 
The one thing I’m always good at is enabling you with yarn, patterns, needles… I’ve discovered a fun yarn, purchased at Joanns, and loved by me. It’s called Sincerely by Pure Essence. 

I’d call it a heavy worsted. I’m designing a baby blanket using one of my dishcloth patterns, revised (pic below). My mad math skills played well here. But, this yarn is soft, it’s sturdy, it doesn’t squeak like some Acrylic yarns I’ve used. I’d rate this yarn a 10/10. Seriously! 

Dishcloth Diva recommends it! (5 stars)
*********************************************************** 


Another cool project I’ve been working on is my new Crochet Dishcloth pattern designs. It’s one of many to come. I do love a good crochet dishcloth. They are thick and full of absorbency. I crocheted this with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn (light blue), and Bernat Handi Cotton yarn (grey). Both I love equally! What is it about crochet that keeps me coming back? It’s only one hook, unlike with knitting, you use 2 sticks, It’s addicting, It allows for much creativity. 

I named this one Omaha. You wonder why? Well, in having a fun conversation with my husband as he sat across from me in my loft, we decided that it would be fun to have a line of crochet dishcloth patterns that resemble different cities and what they are known for. Cute, huh?

 Here’s what I wrote about Omaha

“This dishcloth is the first in a series of patterns related to cities. Cities, you ask? There are so many, why not name them for their beautiful scenery, land marks, or what they are known for. This pattern reminded me of sprawling miles of corn fields in the rural areas.”

What is it you love about Crochet? I’d love to “hear”.



Also, my daughter (up and coming crochet designer) and I have been crocheting up these fun dishcloths. No, the pattern is not mine, but I sure do love the design. The pattern is called Just Right and Big Time. It’s simply written, easy to memorize, and it’s FREE. Go grab it for yourself.

Favorite Patterns I’m Stalking
I have this thing lately with wanting to make some super cute amigurumi animals. You know, those cuddly, soft stuffed toys that will sit on your desk, or perch on the bookshelf? 

I have two favorites:

Pic From Purl Soho Ravelry page


Hedgehogs!! Super cute. Look at their little faces. This seems to be knit in one piece. In reading over the pattern there is NO sewing or grafting. You are picking up stitches along the way. The pattern is FREE here Their Ravelry page has more cute pics and details about the pattern. If you’re so inclined, they have even put together kits for the yarn on their website, whether you want the grey, blue or pink one. Or you may be like me and want all 3.  Yay Purl Soho!

The second pattern I’m stalking, OK, I bought it, is Girl Elephant in a frondy frock.

Pic From Little Cotton Rabbits Ravelry Page


Is she adorable or what! A little bit of fairaisle, seaming, and cute little details will make her sit oh so proudly on my desk. She’s knit in a DK weight yarn, and is a purchased pattern. You won’t be disappointed. When I downloaded the pattern, I was immediately impressed with Julie’s overall attention to detail.

I’m excited about my creative world, the various stitch patterns available and the ways in which I can take one of my own designs and create a totally different project.

Teasers
Like my newest, soon to be released, baby blanket. Here’s a peek… Details coming next month. One of my favorite dishcloth patterns, a few simple mad math skills, and some fantastic yarn [equals] success!

Like many of my favorite podcasters, I am participating in the monthly cross stitch pattern by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. It’s called Once Upon a Time Sampler.

Pic From The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery on Facebook


I haven’t been as good as I should (because I’m easily distracted) with completing each month as it’s emailed to me. But, here’s what I have so far. It’s called Once Upon a Time. I hope to have more to show you next month. I better anyway, we are into April! April! I better get busy…

This has been a fun episode. One doesn’t realized how much is going on until you attempt (I think I did pretty good) to remember all you’ve done. Maybe this is a lesson for the Diva–do episodes more often.

Giveaway

Let’s do a giveaway. How this works is you leave a comment here on the blog with your favorite part of my episode 2 (this one). Was it the enabling? Stalking? Teasers? Whatever you enjoyed, please leave it in the comments below. I will draw one winner on the on the 20th and announce it in the next episode. It will either be yarn or pattern or both!

BLOGcast – Episode 1

I’m so excited to announce that I will be joining the ranks of the (many fabulous) podcasters, but, as a BLOGcaster. For me, it’s about the writing. 

I want to start out by saying THANK YOU for viewing my first (ever) BLOGcast. I think I may have made up this word, but it really does fit. This episode will give you an idea what to expect from me. I have lots of fun things to share with you. My hope is that you will come back time and time again.

So, let’s get started…grab your favorite beverage, your knitting or current WIP, and hang out with me for as long as you’d like, or as long as it takes you to devour every last word.

This BLOGcast will post every two weeks. I will have various other posts along the way, though, who knows…I could change my mind at any moment. That happens often. 🙂

WELCOME
The one thing that will be front and center every time is a {warm welcome, virtual hug} from the Diva. Because, without my readers, I wouldn’t be spending time writing this, showing you that, and chatting it up about whatever.

Let me start by says a BIG Thank You for joining me on this fun adventure into the world of Dishcloth Diva, or better yet, Deb. 

LIFE IS GOOD
This is where I’ll be sharing my WIP’s and FO’s with you. I can have anywhere from 1 project on the needles to, oh, who knows how many projects on the needles. As far as Finished Objects, well, that depends on the WIP’s. I may even throw in a book review every now and then. Those are always fun! Don’t you agree? Though, this could also fall under Enabling. Sigh…

Life happens right? I’ll keep it knitting related. But, I have to say, I’m a quilter, reader of good fiction, love a fresh new recipe, and yes, I crochet. I love a good photo-op moment. So, if the wind shifts and it snows, or the sun shines through my window, I will probably snap a picture and share. Music finds itself in constant ear shot of me most days. My favorites will be shared, and hopefully they can become yours as well. If not, that’s ok. 

So, as life happens, I may change up my craft. Nothing wrong with that, right? Life is (absolutely) Good! 


                                                                                     

DIVA ENABLES
Oh yes, I can! I find myself picking up the yummiest hand painted, hand dyed yarns around. Not to mention the fun favorites I always seem to grab every chance I get. Sock Yarn. A huge addiction of mine. Needles that I find glide well, you’ll hear about those too.

Fiber related enabling will be shared. Guaranteed!

 

FAVORITE PATTERNS I’M STALKING
We all know we love to sink deep in the trenches of Ravelry, for hours sometimes. We grab our laptop or iPad and sit for hours and put pattern after pattern into our library or que. You don’t have me fooled, you know you do it. 🙂

Sometime the emails I receive from various companies have patterns that take me off in another direction… 

TECHNIQUES
Occasionally, I’ll share a technique of two that has fascinated me. Maybe a stitch that I found, or…well, maybe you’d like to see something specific?


GIVEAWAY
I’d like to do giveaways. That will mean one thing…to win, you will be required to leave a comment below or in my Ravelry Group in a specified thread. Sound good?  Yarny stuff goodness!

Well that ends Episode 1. I’m, once again, excited to be a part of this world. Thought, I’ve chose to do my way, I think it will still be fun and a time for you to sit comfortably in your favorite chair, sip on your favorite beverage, and devour my content.

So, until next time…

Enabling You

I am a huge fan of podcasts. HUGE!

I recently listened to Diane, from Knitabulls Podcast. I usually am knitting and drinking coffee or tea while I tune in. She lives in Colorado, as I do. She’s very personable and one you could quickly call a “friend.”

She has a ravelry group that is over 4000 members.

Diane Rocks! She is the best enabler I know. Seriously. She also loves to knit socks and always seems to have them on her needle(s). The yarns she chooses are fun, self stripey, and colorful.

I heard her talk about Lollipop yarns, so I quickly sent a message to Joan on Etsy to ask when more would be available. Here’s what she told me:  

PILLOW TALK Self-striping sock yarn
Hi deb,

Thanks so much for your kind words! Who wouldn’t want to get a message that starts with “Your Yarn Rocks!” Lol!
The shop updates are every other Sunday at 7pm Eastern, with the next one being December 1st.

However, I do random, sneak updates called Covert Yarn Affairs. They are posted in the Lollipop Yarn group in Ravelry and most people don’t even know about it, though, word is starting to spread.

The next one is tomorrow (Thursday) at 3pm Eastern.

Thanks again!

Joan
Lollipop Yarn

Just so you have an idea of what I’m talking about, here’s a link to her SOLD skeins. You will want to bookmark this shop and check back like I will. 

I will continue to enable you with patterns, yarns, podcasts, cute project bags I run into, and much more. 

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

And The Thunder Rolls…

…and has never sounded so good. Though, coupled with lightening, well, that wouldn’t be such a good thing right now for us. 

We’ve experienced yet another fire here in our beautiful Colorado. Almost to the day, a year ago, we had fled from the Waldo Canyon fire. The Black Forest Fire, as they are calling it, had people evacuating from their homes. Some lost their homes, others ran just in case. I can’t say I blame them. I think what we all learned from the Waldo Canyon fire was you can never be sure where it will go next, or when it will strike too close for comfort. Voluntary evacuation to me would mean, go. Just go.

I have sat here, clear on the other side of the city, watching, listening to others cry out on Facebook, hear the news crew when they would make their next briefing. Such a sad thing. For those that have lost everything, I can’t imagine how that feels. For those having to pack up, and get ready because they are on pre-evacuation status, I do know how that feels.  Running around, gathering stuff. 

Wait. It IS just stuff. I understand the heirlooms, the buckets of expensive cashmere yarns, but honestly, nothing is as important as you getting out. You can’t be replaced.

I guess for me, having lived that, I think back to what I could have done differently. Nothing. The fact that we all got out safe and our home was untouched, we can only breathe a sigh of relief. Some can’t do that today. And for that, I can only say, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that happened. And for what reason this fire had started, we may never know. They have begun an investigation into the point of origin, and as to why it got started. I do hope they find out. It would offer comfort, at least to know.

I’m looking out my loft window as I write this. It’s raining. And hard. It’s what we have all prayed for to end this horrible beast. As of 11:30am, the fire is 75% contained. Good news!

The one fun thing positive to have learned, was that my favorite yarn shop, Table Rock Llamas, that was located in the heart of Black Forest, was spared. Yay! We have a knitting group called Bitch ‘n Knit girls that meet every Tuesday morning there. I think we will rename our group, “Smokin’ Hot Knit Bitches”. The shop owners love it. 

Table Rock Llamas Knit Shop

Well, my friends, I didn’t mean to give this post such a negative feel, but just know, it’s part of life right now for many. Take comfort today in knitting something special, whether it be a new hat for someone in need, or a pair of socks for yourself.

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

Deb 

 (p.s. the yarn pics are to add a bit of brightness to this post.)

Divas Vogue Knitting Live experience

Having had the opportunity to hang with my peeps was something that was new and exciting for me. 

Vogue Knitting Live is an event everyone should experience, designer, knitter, yarn-a-holic, etc. The style shows, the fiber vendors, new friends, and more… I had the time of my life. It was something, as a new author, I was thrilled to have experienced. It gave me fodder for upcoming blog posts, new friends to keep up with, and new design ideas for classes and future books.

You walk into the Marketplace and these are hanging from the ceiling. Knitted artwork. 
 



















 

Every elevator in the Convention Center was adorned with these…






The one thing I enjoyed the most was meeting my publisher. She’s a hoot. Shannon Okey is so much like me…quirky, fun, smiles a lot, loves the industry, and has more fun talking with people than the average person. The display at the table was fun and colorful. The pile containing my books kept getting smaller and smaller. Sweet! I signed the last 5 books before I jetted off back home. 
 

 

Let’s not forget to mention how much fun I had buying new fibers. StevenBe was one person that inspired my creativity to the point of no return. Chunky fabrics created with larger needles, blingy yarns, coupled with simple fingering weight yarns. Oh my! I came home with yarn. I know, you’re not surprised. I do love yarn. In fact, it’s the part of me that has no control. Probably, no budget either. With that said, I did yield to caution and only buy fibers that would be a bit different from the ones that already live at my house.

I feel fortunate, as an author, to have attended this event. But, let me tell you, it won’t be my last. In fact, my future plans will take me to Stitches Midwest, where more of the same will occur, I’m sure…

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

Color Inspirations to Inspire Creativity

Where does it come from? I can spend hours on Pinterest. In fact, I could designate an entire board to what look like paint chip pictures to inspire my creativity. Here’s a few: 

The color chips are so inviting…orange and teal, or grey and cinnamon color in the 2nd one, how about condord and wild willow in the 3rd one. Oh yes! The 3rd one is what inspired my loft color scheme. I will add brown in there to round out the colors.

 

What about other sources of inspirations…scarves? I have a closet full of them, but actually didn’t think to use them as color inspiration for my next project/pattern, until it appeared on Pinterest. Love.

 Or perhaps the beautiful bedding found at your favorite store. I like to go and take pictures of pillows and quilts to jump start my creativity. The staff may look at you funny, but it’s perfectly okay to take the shots.

What about buttons? As a quilter, sewer, and knitter, I’ve accumulated LOTS. They are typically so colorful.

And let’s NOT forget the yarn. Oh My Gosh! The minute I walk into a yarn shop or even a craft store, I’m instantly drawn in by all the color. Colors that I would never think of putting together have been spun and dyed together.(True) Love.

What are your inspirations? What inspires your creativity?  How about you leave a comment as to what colors inspire you to create something cool. I’d love to “hear.”

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

Dishcloth Diva’s Book Signing

The minute my publisher announced the book was ready to go to print, I was excited! I mean, who wouldn’t be, right?

What a journey. A year from start to finish. Just what the industry projects. I never believed it, but alot goes into getting your book published: editing, test knitting, editing again, sending it to your publisher who goes over it again (another edit), then the final draft comes back to me. Perfect!

Not to mention all the hours spent on knitting, ripping out, re-knitting, then photographing the dishcloths so they looks book perfect. I couldn’t be more proud of how the images came out. Colorful, brilliant colors. Just like my personality, right? *smiling*

The day is finally here, the one day all writers (designers) dream about…a book signing. My first book signing.  *squee*

To be held at Table Rock Llamas Fiber Studio in Black Forest.  Come one come all and join in the fun. 

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

Deb
