The Directions – North (completed)

I have now finished the 4 Directions banners in the series. This one is North / Red.

North is elders, wisdom and also courage and endurance in facing the cold north winds…

Indeed – it is a strong colour.

The Directions – North

The fourth in my series “The Directions” is North / Red. It was interesting to gather up the yarns that I would use for this direction and realize that I didn’t have a lot of variety in the reds. Well, of course that meant I needed to go yarn shopping – not a hardship 🙂

Here is the beginning of the North banner…

Hoping to have it done this next week. I’ll keep you posted!

Project Spectrum

Project Spectrum 2009 starts today, March 1.

Details on what it is all about can be found here on Lolly’s blog.

The first 2 months are focussed on the North and the following:
NORTH (March/April)
Color: Green
Material: Stones/Gems/Rocks
Season: Winter
Element: Earth

The idea is to get creative with these ideas as a theme. Whether it is weaving, knitting, photography, painting, basket making, journalling, etc. This is the starting point. It may be the colour green, the season, the element or material – or any combination.

I have found a simple knitting pattern that I think I’ll try as something that I can take with me and is simple to knit. I will also plan to weave something and will look for inspiring photos during these next two months…

Stay tuned. If you want to jump in you can join in on your own or look up the “Project Spectrum Group” on Flickr or Ravelry. Of course, I’d love to see anything that you create that is inspired by these ideas.

Here is a photo taken this morning looking NORTH from our porch …

…a bit cloudy, but lots of green!
