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?
