First up is a classic in pink-green combinations: rhubarb. This is mixed with some pear to bulk out the fruit, sitting waiting for crumble topping.
We made it yesterday, as part of a feast for Saturday night knitting in front of the telly (and, oh my, how good was Dr Who?) but stuffed ourselves on homemade pizza, so left it for breakfast instead. Leftover crumble for breakfast always makes me think of a line in the Railway children - "apple pie for breakfast, we can't be poor" - and so feel very decedent.
But onto knitting. The current state of my stash (click on the photo for the flickr version with labels).
It does seem to be very green-orientated. I'm not sure how this has happened, but I must be on a bit of a green kick as I noticed a similar effect in my wardrobe. I think it's a sub-conscious attempt to counter-act the pink kick I was on previously. As evidence of said pink-kick, some roses, waiting to be sewn onto the front the panel of my current WIP:
The yarn tails are all kinky because it's recycled yarn and I was too lazy to wash it between knitting (it used to be this). And lastly, a study in pinks removed from away from any green and taken to extreme (i.e. red). Strawberry Jam! Made by my flatmate yesterday. Inspired by a Nigella Lawson recipe, she used balsamic vinegar. Very yummy.
* EDIT As Heather suggests, there is also "Blue and green should not be seen, except with something inbetween" and, thinking back, I think my mum's version was a mix (i.e. fairy queens only wear blue and green) - I remember a friend convincing me it was pink and green when we were at school. Mmmm, I guess it's the sort of thing everyone has their own varient of.
** Did anyone else have adult-sized dress-up wings when they were 18? Or was that just around the bubble-blowing punkish-goth crowds of the late 90s?
