I am not one who loves sweets. You can put commercial candy in front of me and I won’t even think about touching it. It just doesn’t tempt me much. This applies to most store bought sweets as well. I’d rather eat a bag of potato chips or make biscuits and gravy.
Unless I am faced with a sweet dessert which is a homemade confection. Particularly if it is dark chocolate and wonderfully rich.
But somewhere in my adulthood I realized something else. For me, the one thing that trumps a good dark chocolate homemade dessert is a lemon dessert. Paired with coffee preferably. I just love lemon! I add it to many dishes I make, even the savory ones. But a lemon dessert is really my greatest temptation.
A few years ago I remember walking through a fancy department store and it seemed everywhere I looked, I saw a new sweater pairing lemon yellow and grey. And I loved it. That color combination really spoke to me somehow. I doubt it is even a color combination I’d look good in, but I still love it. It looks so bright and happy to me.
When I saw the Twisted Fiber Art glam gradient in those same colors, it was instantly irresistible. And one I had it in my possession I couldn’t wait to spin it!
One chain plied gradient completed in short order. Yarn is worsted weight, and I’ve got 145 yards. Just gorgeous!
It reminds me of delicious desserts and pretty sweaters and spring. I’ll call that success.
Are you sweet or savory? And which color combinations do you find irresistible?
