*The easiest way for me to get inspired is to visit my Local Knit shop. Three Bags Full in Northbrook has some beautiful samples on display. This is Winnowing by Flood in the Yarn Flaxen. The pattern in available on Ravelry for a small sum. "It' s a lot of knitting" was Kathy S's comment on the process.
I think it is stunning....somedays I want a lot of knitting...
most days that is!A very close second way is to meet up with knit friends and see what they are working on.
Touching the yarns at shops usually surprises me. If I like how it feels I'm usually sold.
Switching up colors inspires me. Purple and Aqua are so IN this year. This purple top is knit in the Berrocco skeins hung above the neckline.
Same yarn, totally different look above. It inspires me for the drape of it. Drape inspires me!
Buying some sale yarn always inspires me. The Lorna's Laces sock yarn above stole my heart. I cast on last night....
*Reading my blog buddies works in progress also inspires me. I may not pick the same pattern by my eye delights in seeing what you are doing.
*New babies. Enough said. They inspire deadline knitting....
*Ravelry new patterns inspire me. I can meander through the daily new pattern offerings any time day or night and get inspired.
*New needles inspire me. As much as I hate paying for them, when those wooden babies start to give a bit beneath my grip, I am always happy.
