Here’s a peek at some of my favourite rainbow-inspired handknits:
:: little fishy mittens by Spilly Jane — oh how I heart these! I think I might have to try colourwork again and make a pair of these for both K and I this winter.
:: this comfy rainbow blanket looks so soft and cuddly — plus the kid in the photo is too adorable! Pattern from the Lion Brand pattern library.
:: and of course, the colourful Tulips baby cardi by Dream in Color has been on my knit to-do list for a while now!
Why I heart these?
When I’m choosing colours, I normally gravitate towards neutrals — greys, browns, white with a occassional blue thrown in the mix. But there’s so much yummy choice out there for vibrant yarns that I really should expand my colour selection. K is naturally drawn to colour — her favourites being blue (like her mama) and orange, so one of these designs is sure to be on my very needles soon!
Happy weekend friends! I hope your weekend is full of colour!
