Weekly Image Of Life: Colors

This week’s Weekly Image of Life from Island Traveler is Colors.

What a great topic!

As you may know, I love to crochet!  In addition to the weight of the yarn, color is key in deciding what I’m going to make.  The box below contains some of the yarns in my stash.

There are bright colors of Spring and Summer plus the earthier tones of Fall.  Most people may look at this and see skeins of yarn.  I see socks, hats, scarves, wrist warmers and maybe a purse or two!


Here are a couple of other colorful items I’ve made.

A rich red shawl for winter!  I love to wear rich colors!


I added a collar so that my neck will stay covered on a windy day.


The yarn has a lovely sparkling thread that runs throughout.

It adds an elegant and festive touch!


By contrast, here is a light spring scarf. 

A colorful scarf can lift my mood.  I feel great when I’m wearing it!

This scarf was the first item I had ever made using a silk yarn.  It is so wonderfully soft.

I also appreciate that I can choose the colors for an accessory or article of clothing that I can create.  It makes it uniquely mine!


To see a few more items that I’ve made, see Cathy’s Crochet Corner.


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

  1. Perfect for the theme! You are multi-talented, Cathy!

      Hi scrapydo! Today I got a package in the mail. My aunt sent me some skeins of yarns that she was not going to use. They are VERY bright – more colors! It fun to receive them…I can see they they might make good projects for school! 🙂

      • scrapydo says:

        Very good. I also used all the left overs to make throws for winter. So lovely to use them when it is cold. I even brought my last one with me to New Zealand!

      • Cathy G says:

        I believe it! I have a blanket that I call my “ugly blanket” (said with a chuckle). Its made of leftovers from at least 20 different skeins, maybe more. In other words, the colors and textures are all over the place! Because of the types of yarns I used it’s got to be one the softest blanket that I’ve made. I was able to use all the bits in my stash, and was able to stay cozy and warm! 🙂

    Beautiful work! I love the colors too.

  4. Colorful artistic work with lots of love and passion. Crochet is one creative and relaxing activity. I bet you made a lot of people warm during Winter’s cold with your creations. Thank you my friend. God bless you and your family.

    • Cathy G says:

      Thank-you island traveler! My motto is that everyone should have a warm neck! 🙂
      It’s nice to know I can help people stay warm when the cold sets in. Thanks again for a great topic!

  5. Northern Narratives says:

    I love your yarn. I see mittens, hats etc. Your red shawl with sparkles is fabulous 🙂

    • Cathy G says:

      Thanks, Judy! I know you probably see future creations when you look at your stash, too! Since I live in a part of the country that doesn’t experience lengthy, extreme cold, I can wear it and other shawls for a good portion of Fall and Winter. No surprise – the red shawl is a favorite!

  6. Your crocheting is beautiful! You are very talented. Have you ever made infant hats? I have a friend who organized a knitting event in where knitters came together to knit baby caps. They knitted over two hundred hats to donate to hospitals to give newborns who left the hospital with warm heads! I thought it was such a nice endeavor!

    Delicious colors… and love the burgundy cardigan. 😉

  8. love the red shawl – the colour detail is very stylish as well as practical =D

  9. oops – that should have read ‘collar’ detail … i guess i just got carried away with all the colour =D

    • Cathy G says:

      🙂 Thanks! The shawl is a favorite of mine. If I’m making them for myself I find that the collar is a nice touch…especially since I like to be sure that my neck stays warm!

  10. Lovely creations! 🙂
