Now, I'm knitting striped socks using yarns from my stash. It's for the Patchwork sockalong (see yesterday's post).
This got me thinking. What if I combined the two ideas and made my own painting-inspired striped socks? I'm betting that, once I chose a picture, I could find suitable yarns in my stash to make the stripes. You could pick a painting in which the colors are fairly subdued and similar to each other.
Perhaps something such as Monet's Water Lilies:
Or you could go wild and crazy with Harmony in Red by Matisse:
After doing a search I found a website which is inspiring called Colour Lovers. I may never look at a painting the same way again. My awareness of the color choices will definitely be heightened. I wonder what other paintings would lend themselves well to a pair of socks. The socks don't have to identically match the painting . The artwork is only an inspiration.
First, though, I have some socks that I need to finish before I can go shopping my stash again.
