My recent excessive shopping spree of some gorgeous yarn has got me perked up and inspired for a challenging new project.

The hand dyed 90%mohair with a touch of merino (10%) is a lovely subdued shade of salmon.

This one is for me! I think I will make a vest of it. All these colours mean my fair-isle knitting books are out. My grandma used to make traditional hats with cross stitch patterned borders. She had a graph paper notebook she would draw her designs in.

I particularly like this rose pattern. I have filled in the original pattern with some colours I plan to use on the vest.

So here is a start to a new project that has been inspired simply by the colours of the yarn around me.
