The Magic Combination

The same day I posted this, I got together with my friend Jerri. That afternoon she mentioned that the washcloth in the post was the one that I had given her. I was confused because I gave her a washcloth a long time ago and the one in the photo I had just finished the day before. When I told her that, she said that the one in the photo looked just like hers. I shrugged and explained that I have a bowl of cotton yarns that I chose from when making washcloths. And, that the combination must be one I really liked which was how I ended up making two similar ones.

Fast forward a few days and I am laying on my couch, cuddling with the cat, looking around the apartment. Then, like a smack on the back of the head, I realize I REALLY must like that color combination because, HELLO! it is the exact same combination that Paul and I chose for our paint and curtains in the living room.

Check it out:

Here are the turquoise curtains I sewed, the white window trim that was already there
and the brown wall that we painted.

Here is the washcloth in question.
The blue and brown in the photo actually match even better in person.

I even knit that washcloth IN the room right next to that wall and didn't notice the similarity. So, yeah, I must be a fan of that combination.
