SOC Wk 6 .... Love is in the air......

Wow...we are now on the 6th and final week
Summer of Colour Challenge 4
Time goes soooooo fast when we are having fun!!
...and Kristin has definitely saved the best colour palette to last...
Raspberry & Tangerine
with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon

LOVE this colour combo

So... I delved into my yarn stash...

in search of these yummy colours.

...and with all the gorgeous inspiration, talent and LOVE that has been shared throughout this challenge by a variety of different artists,  artwork and crafty mediums.....
I thought it would be perfect to end it with a couple of Lovebirds
so with more clacking of knitting needles....
Meet Romeo & Juliet....
 knitted from a free pattern found on Ravelry

I am sad that this is the last week of Summer of Colour, I've been having so much fun that I don't want it to end....Thanks again Kristin for some fabulous Summer of Colour inspiration and all the hard work you do to make this challenge so fabulous each year!
Hop over to .HERE to see what all the fun has been about!

 and here are a round up of my 6 weeks Summer of Colour birdies....
Thanks for peeking!
