One of the questions I get most often is ‘where’s the blue?’ or some variation on that.  I usually wriggle and squirm and more or less decline to answer.

The truth is that I’m not a big fan of blue.  I realize that most people like it, but it’s just never done much for me.  There are all sorts of other colors that grab me more (like orange, have you seen all the oranges out there–and gray, how can you waste any time on blue when there are dozens and dozens and dozens of grays to explore).

Now for KCC, I could explain it away pretty easily.  Those patterns are based on plants, and there aren’t a huge number of blue plants out there.  That’s not going to work for the next one.  The next one’s theme simply demands a few blue projects.  Which is why I find myself with a pile of blue (or blue-ish) swatches.  Surprising, but so far the results are encouraging.

And yes, this does meant that there is a book the third, thank you very much.  It’s already well underway, and I’m sure I’ll be boring you all to death with the minute details of its making over the next few months!
