Easier Than Paint by Number

This project is the knitting equivalent of paint by number.

Nakarra Wrap.

I was never any good at paint by number (staying inside the lines can be very challenging and stressful), but this design has a similar feel with specific colors for each little box.  This project uses mosaic knitting, so there's only one color in play on any given row.  It's so much fun to watch the pattern unfold . . . and easier than paint by number.

Last weekend I took a stroll through the Museum of Fine Arts with my daughter, and I came away full of inspiration.  This linocut from Picasso is this week's color inspiration.

Brilliant red and yellow.
