The May long weekend is here. Does it take you away from knitting and guide your thinking toward your home and surrounds? Maybe the weekend urges you to do a little outside work in the garden or to look at long neglected tasks that could be done now that it’s spring.
I decided to paint my front door. It’s time. Off we went to the paint store to choose colours. That’s lots of fun right there. All those paint chips. How about this colour? Or wait, what about that one?
I got right to it, sanded the door and put on the first coat. Then rewarded myself with some knitting because, hey, I deserved it. And what did I find? It seems that I didn’t leave my knitting behind even when thinking about painting.
Have I mentioned that I love this burnt orange colour of Mineville DK? Just love, love, love it. And I’m going to love my new door colour once it’s got a couple more coats of paint on it.
Learn from my story. Check what you are knitting before you choose colours for your home!!
Do you have a story too? Put it in the comments. I’d love to know I’m not the only one.
