Dec. 1st: Cuff (in my case) in colour of my choice - will be mustard, then colour from my favorite album cover - that would be “Blue is the colour” from the Beautiful South“
Did 6 rows
Dec 2nd Colour that reflects size of my stash - hm…
I’d guess it should be 5-10kg, i.e. green. Might be yellow as well, but my cuff is yellow already, so I will go for green. Will stay with the first sock as the new needles are not there yet.
Did 7 rows
Dec 3d Do a google search of myself and pick a colour from the first picture that is not me - that would be this picture - I pick the red in the backgroun. My needles arrived, so I will start the second sock. Will do 8 rounds of red.
Dec. 4th
A colour from the nearest painting - dark green from the cypress trees on my toscanan sun
Dec. 5th
First letter of my mothers Maiden name - that would be S…. gnaaa - I do not want Schwarz! Maybe Sand? Saphirgrün? Seegrün? Scharlachrot? Hmmmm have to do some stash diving - plan to do 10 rows.
Dec. 6th Colour of the flag of my country of birth - for Germany, it would be Black - no black for me - Red - I had that yesterday - or yellow - is my cuff colour. So I will go for the flag of the county I was born in, Nordrhein-Westfalen - there is green in there, so I will go for green…
Dec. 7th
Colour of my personality according to this test is gold
Dec 8th
Favorite colour of a family member - green
Dec 9th
Colour of my first childhood memory - my red rubber boots“
Dec. 10th
Pick a colour from a christmas carol - hmmm..
Oh Tannenbaum, wie grün sind Deine Blätter?“
maybe - or “Dicke Rote Kerzen” or something else? Have to think…
Dec. 20th
OK, lost contact to the original pattern a bit as I did not want to do fair isle - so I just finished them adding yarn scraps following my liking - quite like the outcome!
