Inspiration

I've been spending my spare moments knitting recently. I couldn't resist this gorgeous wool it reminded me of the colour of the sea here.
We're still being enveloped in wonderful warm days, chilly when the sun sets but by then we're snuggling up around our wood stove.
Finally, look at this little gem, tucked away in a hedge row. The hill sides are now covered in a variety of wonderful wild flowers, anenomes, orchids, jonquille. Think I'll have to take my camera fora walk.......

Hello Jude. I'm going through a knitting phase at the moment too. Your wool really does match the sea. x

that wool really is lovely, and I like the pattern you are knitting. I don't know how to do that intricate knitting yet. The flowers are beautiful also, and make me yearn for sun and sea and warmth.

Wow what an amazing match! The shades of blue in the wool are exactly like the sea. I can see you knit so beautifully. I'm hopeless at it.

This little flower is beautiful, as is that luscious sweater you are knitting. Did you start over with the other one, or is this it? The colors look different.
The ocean is so lovely. Wish I was there.

Oh how I would love to peer down at the water from the rocks above. Beautiful shot, Jude. And precious flowers...

Pondside said...

Beautiful shots, gorgeous colour. We're still enveloped in shades of misty grey and black-green, so the vibrant blues were especially welcome.
