been knitting




Been knitting since the middle of last week. Have got one scarf done and another almost there. This fall I'll be offering a small collection of knits in my shop. My knitting tends to be about texture and color, because, well...I don't actually know too many stitches to make the fancy patterns yet. But I love playing around with different weights of yarn, different sized needles, and colors that are almost not colors at all, the stuff of clouds and sky.

top photo: grey mohair, soft and airy like a cloud and warm too.
bottom photo: cream virgin wool, unexpectedly soft with lots of texture, warm and cozy.

I came across this link to Grass Doe at the end of last week, via MAV's flickr. Looking at it I feel as if I've taken a wordless trip across the country and back. Please have a look, the photography is incredible.

Just came back home and trying to catch up with your summer posts... and it turns out you are almost calling this autumn to arrive, with all your nice knitting. Love the colors.
