If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed that I'm in a bit of a color rut.
Everything I'm knitting or accessorizing with seems to fall somewhere on the mint to teal spectrum. I did not realize it was so bad until my sister commented that it seems to be my color of the year.
Yeah, she's probably right.
Clockwise around we have,
- Project bag from Twist Fiber Studio holding Song of the Sea in yarn dyed by my friend Serena
- Mint hat from Charming Charlies
- Peaceful Pullover in Copper Corgi Savanna Sock in the Skyline colorway
- Phone case by Incipio
- Chevron Cowl from Flytrap Studios
And this is just what I've bought / started working on since April.
As much as it may seem this way, this color did not spontaneously take over my conciousness in the last month. I think the infection started back when I was in grad school and was exposed to teal on a daily basis. Then the first real signs started last year when I bought shoes the same color as my hair.
And then I turned around and mint is on trend for spring, so of course I had to get everything before it goes away. It just makes logical sense.
So yes, I do have a tealy blue illness. And I'm ok with that. I can't be the only one this happens to, right? Right?
PS: HAPPY STAR WARS DAY! When I started this post I wasn't paying attention to the date, but I'm here editing in my Boba Fett dress, plotting ways to have a Star Wars themed dinner. There might be food coloring involved.
