Dreaming of Spring

I played around with Kool Aid the other day and dyed this skein of Rowanspun 4 ply.  I’m pleased with it – it’s a nice red, and I do love me some red.  No idea what I’ll do with it, but it was fun to try dying.  I’d like to try a more nuanced approach, but honestly, I haven’t got the money, or really the time, to start a new and potentially expensive hobby right now.  Still, it was fun to try mixing Kool Aid shades and dying the yarn, and it sure smells yummy.

It’s very cold lately – for here – and today it’s grey and overcast and off and on stormy, so of course I’m dreaming of Spring and all the lighter, faster transitional garments one can knit then.  For some reason, I’ve been intrigued by vests lately, but I haven’t seen any patterns that really fit what I’m looking for.  I flipped through my inspiration folder and found these pictures that I clipped from an Anthropologie catalog some years back.  Forgive the quality – these are photos of photos.

I really like the bobble-y gold one, and the sideway garter vest is really intriguing, too.  I don’t know if I’m mess about with trying to recreate any of these, but I like them a lot.

    The second picture looks similar to a baby sweater pattern I have started to see around the web. This one-
    b14-27 Jacket, trousers, soft toy and blanket in Alpaca by DROPS design . Helloyarn made it several days ago.

    That is a very nice red.

    All I’m able to have to say is make sure you create more. Geez, if feels like My partner and i observed a video as opposed to reading through a good articleits thus obvious. You actually understand what youre talking about. My personal considered has been, why squander the way with words-at all on website content articles once you could possibly be composing books? Think about it. You are excellent at that which you do. Phrase!
