The creative process in nature and knitting!
Yaaaay, some sun at last! I was beginning to think the grey days would never end. It's amazing what a difference light and heat make in the garden - colours start to pop, leaves start to sparkle and birds start singing - suddenly life is good!
That said, the misty moisty mornings can provide a different type of inspiration. I've always had a soft spot for chalky hues, as opposed to pastels which I generally steer clear of. After the turn of the year the increasing light changes the colours around us all the time, although most days it's still too gloomy to notice, but now and again out of the blue comes an extraordinary day with nature asserting herself in all her colourful glory again. Such was the day that inspired these two pieces - Foggy Dew Shawl and Dew Drop Scarf.

The tassels give it a more oriental sort of feel - like the quayside in Essaouira early in the morning
The colours here are stronger but you can get the drift from the hazy background.
I'm right in the groove now with ideas for more crescent knits flowing freely, so watch this space... and don't forget to let me know your what you think, it's always good to get your feedback.
