Knitspiration: Winnowing

I’ve been neglecting my blog recently, but not neglecting my knitting. So I should have several projects to share over the next little while. (That reminds me I have several projects that need less than half an hour of finishing each before they are actually finished, a job for this weekend…)

Anyway, I suspect I’m not alone in spending waaay too much time browsing patterns and projects on Ravelry before I choose my next project. So I thought why not share those projects which have inspired me on my blog? I think I’m going to make this a regular feature on my blog.

I’m currently working my way (slowly) through Winnowing by Bristol Ivy.I’m knitting it in Coolree Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere 4ply in Camelia.Here are some of the projects that inspired me to knit my own Winnowing.

luminen's winnowingI love the light shining through the knitted fabric in this photo. [luminen’s winnowing]

leighsideknits' A Straw ShawlI just love the colour of this shawl, I’m going through an ochre/mustard phase at the moment. [leighsideknits’ A Straw Shawl]

sarahbird22's WinnowingOne of the things I love about this shawl is that it looks so wearable, I’ll be able to wear it around my shoulders for a bit of extra warmth when the temperature drops.[sarahbird22’s Winnowing]

alfanhui14's Winnowing WheatSee how wearable this shawl is? And I’ve just realised I’ve chosen two yellow and two grey projects which are both colours I’m drawn to at the moment. [alfanhui14’s Winnowing Wheat]

Where do you go for knitting inspiration?

  1. Looks like a lovely pattern and very wearable as you say……………..shall keep an eye out for the FO. I am also guilty of trawling through the projects on Ravelry and gleaning inspiration, it is such a great resource to have at your fingertips. Sometimes other peoples photographs/choice of yarn/styling give a better illustration of how the pattern looks or how it can be used or worn……………that’s my excuse for spending so much time on Ravelry!!

    • I totally agree that looking at other people’s project sometimes gives you a better impression of how the project will turn out.

  2. I’m so honoured to have my winnowing join the company of these other gorgeous examples in your gallery today! Winnowing is very wearable and the thing I love best about mine is how it feels like you are wearing a big hug 🙂 I hope you will enjoy yours. Can’t wait to see your winnowing off the needles! xo
