Blue Nude

We received a box of very pretty yarn from Zen Yarn Garden this morning. Blue Nude is here.
The twenty fourth offering in our ART WALK Series features a painting by Pablo Picasso entitled "Blue Nude". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by our chosen art piece, our dyer has successfully captured the excitement and complexity of the painting.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), a twentieth century Grand Master who co-founded Cubism, was only 20 years old when his friend’s tragic death resulted in the subdued “Blue Nude. His “Blue Period” artworks, rendered in somber blues and greens, were part of an astounding 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures he produced in his lifetime. Hauntingly beautiful and exquisitely composed, “Blue Nude” is one of Picasso’s best-selling pieces, and a testament to his ability to express complex emotions with one simple shade. [quoted from Art.com]
We have the colour in Serenity Glitter Sock and Serenity Silk Single.

I've knit a few things in Serenity Silk Single and highly recommend the yarn
Pattern: Ley Lines (purchased on Ravelry) knit with three skeins

Pattern: Auburn Wave (purchased on Ravelry) knit with two skeins
Pattern: Windward (purchased on Ravelry) knit with two skeins

Not only is the yarn a favourite of mine, these patterns are favourites as well. Normally I don't repeat a pattern but I have made all three of these more than once (and would make them again).

The sidewalk in front of our house were poured today. That means we can start planning the driveway.

Now it's knitting time.
