    Oh I love that sweater! My gift to myself [once I work through my stash yarn] is to buy enough Calmer to make it. I can’t wait!

    I have a lot of red planned for this two month span…I’m so excited to start! And it’s also Chinese New Year this month…and red is a very good color to start with! Happy February!

    I have some orange Kertsi that is begging to be mittens, the skies are so dull here today, I need a flash of color!

  3. Sarah

    Yey PS!

    Love that sweater, good luck with that. Am looking forward to the ATC swap the most :o )

    Thanks for stopping by

    This is the first year that I’m participating and I’m really looking forward to it!
    I’m definitely using this as an opportunity to work with my stash. I’ve got two skeins of sock yarn that will be perfect as the fire element. I also want to take pictures throughout the month.

    Yay! I’m excited about this PS! So inspiring, I have lots of ideas. :o ) Thanks for organizing it and drumming up inspiration and excitement! Very cool idea.

    I’ve never joined in on Project Spectrum. But I’m really getting lured into this time. So many lovely ideas…

    Verye xcited about this as fire is “my” element being a leo
    have made some fire elemental dolls and I’m going to make a shawl in a fiery mohair

    Those look like beautiful plans for the first two months. I’m making a pink, orange, and red baby quilt for friends that are expecting after a long struggle with infertility. Plus, I’m going to try out the ATC swap, which should be really fun!

    I’m doing it different from how I would normally do it. Normally I’m going big – having big plans that maybe get not accomplished at all. Last year I didn’t join PS, because I thought it too much for my time and my other crafts.
    This year I marvel Project Spectrum in keeping it small – in more than one regard: Few projects, very few. Probably ATC, reading Chapter 4 and 5 of this Finlay book in March (has been sitting in my shelf for over a year). Maybe finishing my “Fröhlicher Schal” (“happy making scarf”) that is my online knitting this winter. Going through some of my photos. Maybe taking some new, but it’s not the season for this topic in my life-style. Ordering a photography book by Michael Freeman on color that has been on my list for quite a while.
    Yes, and second I just discovered how small those ATC’s are. Perfect!

    I love the sweater – and the yarn is divine. I am knitting a burnt orange Hemlock Ring Blanket right now… I am all “a fire” for Project Spectrum #3′s start!

    I apparently lack the tenacity to stick with Project Spectrum, but I have to say that I really enjoy your themed posts.

    You know, thinking about Project Spectrum in it’s third year (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) has made me wonder who/what has the record “longest running swap.”

  12. amanda

    Hey Lolly, yep I plan on joining PS. I’m just starting a new, RED project!

  13. AmyDe

    OMG I almost (ok completely) forgot about PS being today. Girl I don’t know how you do it all, but I’m glad you do. I’ll be organizing my thoughts for PS tonight and this weekend and try to get “in the zone.” I’ve been in a bit of a crafting funk lately and I think PS is just the kick in the pants to focus my energies and pull me onward and upward. Thank You!

    I’m exceedingly excited for the fire element! This is my baby- the pinks, the burgundies, and lots of lovely shades of peachy brilliance. I’ll blog the projects I aim to do, but my most important goal for the Fire time period is to think of flames as an all-consuming force. In my case, finishing up those long-time UFOs, or frogging them, so as to start fresh from the embers. I am ready for some phoenix-like reawakening out of the flames! Autumn Rose is also lovely and red and gold. Hopefully Project Spectrum and the color love will inspire me to finally brave my fears and swatch for it! Best of all, I would like to do a bit of holiday knitting for myself and make myself a menorah pillow to use during this year’s holiday season. Knitting the flames was the best part of that project the last time (I made the pillow for my father), and I have had the yarn to make one for me for ages!

    I’m smack in the middle of my Month of Love series, but when that’s over, I plan on doing a PS series of handspun yarns…inspired by the elements and their occurances in my locale. I think this is going to involve a lot of photography!
    Yay!
    Happy February!

    This will be my first year participating in Project Spectrum – thanks for putting it out there again this year. It’s been fun seeing what projects came out of it in previous years, and I think adding the Artist Trading Cards exchange is a brilliant way to expand it outside the virtual world.

  17. Kristin

    I’m taking part – I’ll be posting a picture on my blog everyday. And I’m going to finally use up all those pinks and reds in my stash.

  18. Poppins

    Woot! I’m so glad I stopped by here yesterday. I’d somehow managed to forget the day. So I went and cast on something in a very suitable colourway. What a joy to see the firey colours on my needles at this time of year.

    I have one major Project Spectrum activity planned that uses 24 colors of a hand-dyed lace weight yarn. The yarn, from Jager Farm Icelandics, comes in 45-yard mini-skeins and I paln to use it to make my version of the lovely Clapotis. And to be true to the immediate colorway, I have some lovely Socks that Rock in oranges and reds!

    I can’t wait to see everyone’s wonderful projects — particularly the cards.

    My plan for all of Project Spectrum this time around is to let socks be my themed projects, since trying to plan larger projects that coincide with the themes just doesn’t work out well for me. For fire, I’m going to be knitting Flickering Flames socks out of some really lovely semi-solid orange sock yarn. We’ll just see what I come up with for the rest of the elements!

  21. Lin

    The sweater you have chosen to knit is lovely. It is great to see everyones ideas, I am glad I decided to take part this year!

  22. Ashley

    Inspired by Sarah, I’ve got some bread rising right now! Covered by a red towel, of course. :) I’ll have the recipe up on my blog later today or tomorrow…

  23. Mimie

    Love the sweater! I’ll be interested in the knit group. =)

  24. Chriss

    This will be my first project spectrum, and I’m really looking forward to it. I plan on doing a bit of photography, a bit of knitting and a bit of mixed media for this challenge. Looking forward to it, and thanks for hosting! :)

    You’ve probably already received at least one, but I just wanted to let you know that I’ve given you a “you make my day” award over at my blog!

    All the best,

    How is it that I hadn’t any idea this was starting again until just now, 5 days into it?
    I guess that goes along with the fact that I didn’t know it was Superbowl Sunday until around noon on Sunday, and didn’t know until the following day who even played in it let alone won it, not to mention that I just realized today that we’d missed Groundhog’s Day altogether. Duh.
    The good thing is that I have posts and projects already in the works for this week that’ll fit right in nicely with the red/orange/pink theme! Perfect. And, convenient, too!
