Inspiration #1

today was an amazing day in Vancouver

Fall in the most pretty way : a little warm, sunny, colorful and quiet

based on my walk around Granville Island and Kitsilano

I am inspired to start at least two new projects ~ smile

the first is a scarf in cool shades of crispy light colors

reflecting the pretty surroundings I met today

with 100% silk yarn from this Silk Weaving Studio on Granville Island ~ I simply couldn't resist

where I found this rainbow colored scarf in the most simple but yet effective knitting pattern

I might use that pattern for my scarf, or entrelac again, or this amazing crochet pattern at Vanessa's

but for now I am perfectly happy just looking at these pretty skeins

how I wish you could feel the softness too...

more inspiration in the next post, beware of a bright and colorful yarn scheme!

~  love ~


  1. You can almost "see" the softness and such wonderful colours, indeed...must be pure joy to knit or crochet with them, enjoy! Greetings, Simone

  2. Oooh, lovely yarn and colours and I love to see your inspiration pics! The scarf looks great, really like sunshine in autumn! I'm looking forward to see what you do with the new skeins! :-)

  3. Los colores son preciosos y ayudan a la inspiración. Seguro que te queda precioso tu nuevo proyecto.
    Un saludo.

  4. Love the yarn and the colours you chose.

  7. How perfect your yarn colours are today my friend..your eye for taking images is amazing.
    So glad your day was filled with these beautiful colours may you find lots of joy in the streets today. See you tomorrow!!!! xoxoxoxoxox Did you find a sweet meeting place?

  8. Sounds like your day in Vancouver was great. I live in North Vancouver and I love it here. There is inspiration and colour no matter where you look. I have not been to the Silk Weaving Studio but will be making my way there. Your yarn looks gorgeous. I am happy you are enjoying your new home in Canada.

  9. Welcome to Vancouver! How long are you here? Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay.

    Pretty scarf! I'll have to visit that studio next time I'm at Granville Island!
