strange inspiration

I gotta say it – I LOVE graffiti for the great palettes that the writers use. I am so inspired by the colors and the shapes. Since we moved up here, I’ve come to realize that it’s one of the things I miss the most about NY. That and our friends. And the subway. And all the great food for cheap. And the museums. And… let me stop now, since really, the list could go on and on. But yeah, back to this place, the here and now. There are little spots here and there, namely by the train tracks, that are covered with gorgeous explosions of forms within chaos and riotous color. I love it, and clearly it feeds me all sorts of ideas about color combos.

So I am still playing around with different patterns for my potholders for the swap. So far, I am kinda liking this one Japanese pattern. Let’s see how it all comes together, though. Also, I like working with wool. However, I am still not totally sold yet. I better get croch-et-ing.
