Yarn Inspiration



From the top: Madelinetosh sock in Ginger, The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Gladiator Katydid,
and Becoming Art Cielo Sport in Sunlit Amber.


Recently I've had the pleasure of working with these 3 gorgeous yarns. There is nothing more inspiring as a knitter than working with good materials in colors that you love. As I work on my newest design projects, I cant stop thinking of all of the new patterns I want to create. All I want to do these days is knit and knit and knit... and buy more beautiful yarns of course!

I've used Cascade 220 before. It knits up beautifully. Can't choose a favorite color, there are too many to choose from!

I just recently discovered Tosh myself and it feels like heaven to knit with. I can't believe I waited so long to knit with it. The depth in the color is astounding in all the colorways. Now I'm eyeing that Sanguine Gryphon yarn. Very pretty. Let us know how you like it.

Madelinetosh ginger sock yarn is oh so beautiful. Actually, all of them look incredibly pleasing to my fingers and eyes. I would love to get my hands on these (my hands would thank me) and knit up a storm !

I am also so glad to hear that after being sick for a while your knitting fever has come back (that's the good kind of sickness, right ?!?!)

Never enough stash in my opinion. Some yarns are so pretty just to look and feel that I'm happy just to do that! Love the colors shown here...

Looks like you took the picture with the yarns on your bed - and they're definitely yummy enough to cuddle with! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
