I recently stumbled across the most delicious and exciting and FUN yarn work (at least I think it is!) here, with Jane Thornley and her breathtaking, earthly, FUN creations! The day I discovered her blog/web page happened to be the week a new knit-a-long was starting up on Ravelry. If you are a ravelry member, you might want to check out the Jane Thornley Group there and definitely check out some of the projects people have made from her free thinking ideas.
I purchased the Feather and Fan booklet and, inspired, started pulling things out of the yarn stash. Along with enhancements from Sip 'n Knit (my local yarn shop), here is just some of what I have concocted so far:
The first photo of these three, the red group, is the one I am starting with (I am in a "red" phase these days - LOL! Maybe it is my recent obsession with everything tomato - see yesterdays post) You might be able to see the little rectangle I knit just to get me started. I have cast on now for the Organic Wrap in these colors. I didn't take photos of the other "groups" of colors I have pulled together - one in pastels; one in blacks and greys and browns and creams; one in earthy peach and aquas and one in some hot and bright magenta, gold, copper and black.
What FUN!!!! Thank you, Jane, for your inspiration ;D I am hooked!
