This week I'm back on track with my ripple journey after my Jolly Festive detour.
It's been absolutely delightful to re-connect with these soft waves of warm, woolly colour.
I had a huge amount of fun creating new festive things, but oh I have missed the easy, soothing rhythm of the ripple.
It's like coming home when you've been off on an exciting little jaunt.
Warm, comforting and familiar.
I'm not very much further on from my last ripple update in mid November, but I have now managed to incorporate all the colours, including that rather tricksy deep maroon.
It's proving to be a massive challenge working the colours in random sequence, it's not as easy as it seems. There's a continuous attempt to balance it all out in pleasing harmony whilst not making it too rainbowy, if you get that. A certain amount of discord is necessary, but it's actually quite hard to relax and let it happen.
But I'm enjoying the challenge enormously, it's keeping me on my creative, colourful toes. Speaking of which, do you like my turquoise shoes and my new spotty green socks? Just this very instant realised that my socks match the jug on my table. How funny.
