Thoughts for the Future
Despite being thoroughly in love with with my granny stripes, my thoughts are never far away from my next project. I've been enjoying gathering some images on Pinterest related to colour and I think I have picked a lovely selection of colours for my next project. Once again, I am completely breaking the mould in terms of my usual colour choices but my thoughts are also never far away from the warmer weather and I think my colour selection reflects the desire for a summer! I'm thinking warm sun and beaches, deck chairs and wind breaks, ice cream and beach towels and I can't wait to see how these colours will come together. I haven't totally decided on what pattern to use yet, but I am very strongly drawn towards an interlocking ripple......
Do you like my yarn holder thingy? It's not my idea, I remember reading about something similar on a blog recently. It's just some pieces of card wrapped with yarn, a hole punched in the corner and threaded onto a locking jump ring raided from my long forgotten scrap booking supplies!
I love the pop of red! All the yarn is Stylecraft Special DK apart from Mint, which is Stylecraft Life DK.
I'm back to work this week, but I'm feeling rested and ready to return. We are getting a new to us car this week too, which is very exciting. It's a Volvo and it's automatic and it's BIG! We are thinking of calling her Verity!
