A Little Creativity

After a long day last night, I allowed myself the pleasure to create a little. The results were 2 beautiful 4 oz rovings, one inspired by Scottish tartans in tones of blues and greens. Such boldness always makes me smile.

The other, was at the opposite end of the spectrum.It is as subtle as the first roving was bold. It is inspired by the paintings of Chagall. Soft corals, aquas, almond greens and plum greys seem to echo the love in Chagall's paintings.

I just added these rovings to my Etsy Store. I am dyeing some glorious Worsted Merino in ochres today. I have been thinking of perfect yarns for the February Lady Sweater. (After I finish Mr SockPixie's socks, I will knit a February Lady Sweater.) I will show you tomorrow.

Lovely roving! As soon as I'm getting my stuff from storage, I'll dig into my fiber stash and look for the roving I bought from you in the past.
Are you always working on only one knitting project, or do you have WIP's like almost everybody else?

Oh I must say that I particularly like the tartan inspired roving! I finally got the chance to travel to Scotland this year after years of dreaming about it. It was incredible and your roving captures the boldness beautifully!
