Last Hurrah for Black/Red/Metallic

Last night was the Full Buck Moon. I didn't get out to take its picture. You'll just have to imagine a big bright full moon, okay?
So, I haven't been very faithful to Project Spectrum the last two months. Not quite sure why, except that maybe I found the combo of red/black/metallic sorta uninspiring. However, I'm willing to give it one last try.
Herewith, some red and black yarn. This is Cherry Tree Hill possum, superwash merino/possum. It's been discontinued and I got some on a super clearance. It is soooo soft and lush, will make something nice and cozy. Whether it will be a sweater or a shawl, hasn't been determined yet. I am sorta leaning toward a shawl, since I seem to be in a sweater funk (see previous posts re: CPH) and shawls are easy and still provide warmth and cuddle-factor. In this climate (read: blast furnace most of the year) warmth is a given, but I do have family and friends in colder places.

Just so you can see how far I had to stretch to find something red, here's my phone.
Well, it's red and metallic, right?

How about a nice red rose?

More red roses?

Okay, that's it. I almost got out some pictures from July 4th, because I have some shots of my grandcarrot, his mom and dad, all wearing red shirts.
That would be a stretch.

Enough ramblings from the melted remnants of my brain--I am quite ready to bid adieu to the month of July.

Oh, except for one thing: wishing a happy birthday to the newest teenager in the family, Brian. Hope it's a good one!

Happy Birthday to Brian! The teen years are good ones...enjoy!

I think you did pretty well with the Project Spectrum. I don't think I could have found that much to photograph!

I agree with the lack of inspiration for red, black and metallic. Blah for me but gorgeous for your and your pics.

I saw that big, beautiful, bright moon last night and there's a deep frost on the lawn this morning to prove it.
A 'buck' moon though? Where does that come from?

I put a link on the Full Buck Moon to explain the Native American names, for those of you who aren't familiar with them!

I didn't know those were the PS colors right now. It would be hard to be inspired, I guess you are already a red/black person. But look, all kinds of red in your life!

I love your PS photo shoots! Always so fun to see.

Can't believe it's August already...and that we're on the final round of colors now. Whew. Where does the time go?
