Friday Round Up: A Blast of Color

The last few days have been A Sign Of What's To Come:  grey skies, blustery winds, rain.  The leaves are past their prime.  The gardens have stopped their blooming.  The bleak months are on their way.

Time to add some color!

A couple of weeks ago, Margene showed us her new Keens.  Bright, colorful, happy feet! 

I have the same shoes. . . only mine are in a different color scheme.

It's such fun to look down at your feet and smile at the riot of pattern!

Personally, I'm a fool for navy and white ticking stripe.  That's what sold me on these shoes!

Even on a gloomy, dark day . . . you can get a blast of color from your feet.

In mid-September, Target launched its Missoni for Target line.  Cool Missoni stuff . . . at Target prices.  I didn't get there in time.  By the time I arrived (the day after The Launch), nothing was left.  So.  Imagine my surprise when I stopped by Target last week for some essentials. . .

and found this. . .

A full month after The Launch, there was a lonely rack of Missoni merchandise.  Not on clearance.  But there all the same!

I bought a blouse (that is surprisingly well-made, although the buttons are really cheap-looking and need to be replaced) and this cute little knit bag.

There is nothing like Missoni to bring in a blast of color!

And then, there is this. . .

a cute little baby set I finished up as a gift for a former co-worker who is having her first baby (a girl) next month.

A perfect blast of color for a gloomy day.  (Ravelry details here.)

Enjoy the weekend!  Add some color ... whatever you're doing.
