Colouring


Today's yarn and felt purchases to make a new project that I have just got a pattern for. I seem to have a bit of a pink theme going on here at the moment. And this is no bad thing. All will be revealed soon!










I also decided to brighten up my bamboo knitting needles. I have seen some really pretty needles for sale with flowers painted on them, and in a way that is probably typical with knitters, I thought, "I could do that" so I did.

These are the 6mm ones, which are the biggest in my set. I started on some of the other smaller ones, but it got a bit dark and I began squinting in a most unseemly manner so I'll have to finish them off some other time.

I'm intrigued to see what you'll be making with the felt and yarn.

Your needles look very pretty now.

I love the needles very like the Barge Art style that you see on all those narrowboats on canals! Very pretty!
