Winter in all colors

While it’s mid summer, I know many of you planning next projects well in advance, especially when you can see a yarn sale. Therefore, as you rebuild your stash, here are some great ideas for long fall evenings. Overall, this post its called Shades of Winter, because there are no 2 identical winters and because winter differs from state/province/country. So, actually it’s really many shades! Thus, you can not only play with the colors, but also make thematic blankets appropriate to different places and times.

In a similar fashion, these shades of winter also combine the browns, blues and whites of a wintry day in the country. However, these aren’t contrasted with black, giving them a slightly misty appearance. Thus, it’s as if there was a fine dusting of snow in the air.
