With spring officially here, it’s time to pack up those dark winter hues and break out your spring colors. Not only in your home decor and clothing, but also in your choice of yarn! Whenever I get tired of a color scheme and need to start looking for a new one, I always end up perusing Pinterest (and by perusing, I mean getting sucked in to hours of sifting through hundreds of beautiful patterns that I want to crochet). Magazines, television shows, movies, and nature can all play a role in what inspires my color choice. This week though, my inspiration came from a particularly tasty dessert: Sorbet!
This delicious frozen treat is always rich in color. From the vibrant pinks to perfect mint greens, they’re almost too beautiful to eat (almost). They, in my opinion, are the perfect colors for spring. They’re rich in tone and bright without being blinding. Just look how beautiful these color palettes are from Design Seeds:
These colors are the perfect way to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. Let’s add a breath of fresh air to your home and wardrobe with the help of these sorbet projects:
