Since we've moved to the suburbs, venturing out into the city is considered "an outing" in our house. We all enjoy our little trips, and make an effort to keep things interesting.
Before the start of school, we took the kids to one of Montreal's prettiest outdoor markets, "Atwater market".
It is always such an enjoyable experience. Fresh produce everywhere, the smells and colours all delicious and tempting. My favourite spots is this little patisserie, tucked away in a corner. We always make a pit-stop there, to enjoy a cappuccino or hot chocolate and a macaron.
When I walked in this time, and saw their display, it hit me...this would be a perfect colour combination for a girl's cardigan. Inspiration is funny that way, it lurks in the strangest places.
My project is a girl cardigan called "Semis de printemps". It is another gift for my nieces. Their mom had asked for a simple go-to cardigan that can be used any-time, and this pattern is just that.
The yarn I chose to use for it is Noro Tayo Sock, in a colourway that perfectly suits my inspiration.
If you recall, I just spoke about colour inspiration in my previous post. To me, it is such an important part of choosing a project to work on.
I'm wondering...what inspires you when you choose yarn for a project?
