I'm still knitting..

but it's a "Plaid" jacket for Holly that I find very dull. I cast on a "Silk Mountain" capelet today just to break the monotony . I am able to dive into my stash to add other deep violets such as some wildly vivid "Hanna Silk" . I just gaze at piles of wild colours and want to do things to them . I read a wonderful quiz on Jane Thornley's site ...link on Gill's ( Woolly Workshop) site.I could ogle Jane's site for hours. I have a skein of "Fandango" that is so fabulous ..like a rose bush but I think it is raspberry colourway.Anyhow It's inspiring something because it is so gorgeous and soft.

Isn't wonderful, colourful yarn so inspiring? I keep a basket on the table in my living room, just to look at :0)

Thanks so much for the lovely compliment on my blog.!!

I would really love to see the plaid jacket your knitting. I havent branched out into color work even though I know how to do it.. I'm just to impatient to sit there and work it all out *lol*

Hi there ,I do do colourwork but this one is Rowan's "Plaid" which is a three strand wool called that.Mind you there is a real Plaid jacket in my interweave knits I have my eye on !

Charity ..try typing Jane Thornley into search if you havn't seen her work . You'll get her site and a site called "Yarn Stashio" which will really inspire .
