After two quiet days of writing down a step-by-step pattern at my studio, the Hello Yellow kit is now finally available at my shop. This Yellow cotton project started as I was waiting for my boys in their afternoon English lesson. I was waiting for them on the car and as always I took some crochet work with me for my ‘waiting for my kids time’. I was looking for an up lifting project to have on my hook. I wasn’t really sure about what will it be and what will it end up like but I just felt this Yellow is what I need on my hook as a colour therapy. And it definitely delivered that much needed Yellow happy spirit. It was the other morning that I went out to our balcony garden when I met these stunning Yellow visitors blooming on one the plants. We planted some new plants recently and I chose this one because I loved it’s grey leaves colour, but I didn’t know these yellow flowers will come to visit later on. I just looked at it quite amazed and said “hello yellow” I starred at it for quite a while then went to bring my camera to document this beauty. I’m not sure if these Yellow flowers were the trigger for my desire to have some Yellow on my hook but I guess it left it’s mark in my creative mind. In one way or another I find my garden as one of these up lifters and a huge source of inspiration. So, I took Yellow to my ‘waiting at the car time’ and after crocheting 4 or 5 rounds of this Yellow thing, I was looking at it and I heard myself saying “hello yellow’ and that’s how Hello Yellow got it’s name. On a very early stage of my work I already knew it’ll become some sort of a container though I didn’t know exactly what kind. I was trying so many options and variations of sizes and different proportions and I crocheted with different hook sizes, till it finally looked right to me. One thing I can tell for sure, these hours of crocheting with a happy colour effected my mood in a very positive way. This Yellow colour was a real up lifter and provided me with some mental light. At the same time I crocheted this Yellow cotton colour, there were few other projects laying around it and on some point they were laying in it. The Yellow project became a container for other projects and I was so happy that the Yellow thing just chose his personality on the go. After realising this Yellow container is going to be a bag I started to look for the right handles. I had this lady on one of my Mondays meeting asking me to crochet handles for a crochet bag she made and I was looking for some ideas for her on Pinterest. It came out with handles pattern I wrote for both – her bag and my Hello Yellow. So now after hours of ‘studio time’ with just me, my camera and my computer I finally can launch my new Hello Yellow DIY kit.
