Laura’s Blog Entry

Kickin’ It Old Skool Blog-a-Thon : Day Three
All this month I am blogging from some prompts from Jamie and Shannon Ridler for the Kickin’ It Old School Blog-a-Thon.

I’ve gotta be honest; today’s prompt felt overwhelming. A list of 50 questions about color. I could work on something like this for a week. In my head I am wondering who in the world is going to want to read my answers to these questions. I had to figure out a way to participate and also be able to complete the prompt today. So of course the first thing to do was to find a photo for each color. That would save time (NOT).

After wresting with it, I decided to play along and go out of my comfort zone. I’ll forgive you if you doze off… At least there are some pictures!

    Thanks for the photos – makes the reading go faster.
    I’m from Cleveland, OH originally… it’s nice to see the Lake again…

      Oh good! I thought it helped break up all the text. FYI, since you are from Ohio, photo was taken at Marblehead, Ohio. I do love the lake!

    I love your blog entry, including photos. Where you see yellow, I see “vert-de-gris”, that beautiful green found on old metal surfaces. You sure think of wool a lot 🙂

      Oh yes – I see lost of vert-de-gris in there alongside the golden yellow. I noticed that most colors I saw were in contrast to another color. Good old color wheel must be right! Perhaps because I am surrounded by at least three baskets with different knitting projects it keeps the wool on the brain. I do love it!

    Well, after being hesitant to start, you certainly hit this one out of the park. Those photos are gorgeous, and I for one, very much wanted to read all of your answers – and I’m glad that I did!

      Oh goodness – what a sweet comment. This really touched me today. Thanks! I do like letting something become what it is supposed to be. Working through that resistance.
