A Remarkably Beautiful Tribute to Knitting

…from someone who is not a knitter.


And the 2012 Color of the Year Is…

Tangerine Tango.

What a happy, fun color! I love how Pantone has been branching out into different industries. They have a long-standing relationship with the graphic design/printing industries, and I used to always pore through Pantone books when I was working as a graphic designer. Specifying a Pantone color was the surest way to know that what you intended is what came back from the printer. But now that I am pursuing design in a different industry, I am happy to find that my good old standby still inspires me.

To you non-graphic designers, I do offer one word of warning: a Pantone book is a serious investment. Be sure you will really use it before you buy one.

Which Sticks Do You Prefer?

Vogue Knitting posted this fun fact: Knitting is almost twice as popular as golf in North America. While there are approximately 30 million golfers, there are about 50 million knitters.

The golfers in the world will have to forgive me, but why golf when you can knit? When you knit, you can see the fruits of your labor. I think this is why even when I should be doing other things, I don’t feel guilty for knitting. 🙂
