luvinthemommyhood had mentioned should we feel inspired to do so, to post about colour, fiber round-ups, or musings of fall colours today.. well do i feel inspired! ha. always. especially in the fall. love it! however, since yesterday's post was basically a fall fiber round-up, i'll take it a bit of a different direction today :)

i am so excited for this 3 month long (yes you read that right, three months) celebration of colour! i can only hope that i'll be able to knit as much as i want to.. well no that's not realistic at all.. fat chance i'd be able to pull that one off.. haha, but i can sure try!!
you know the yarns i've been coveting, and the colours that have been catching my eye.. how about a few patterns i'd looooove to knit up? yes? thought so.

well it's a little more than a few... but aren't they all lovely? if i could knit up just a couple of them i'd be a very happy girl :)

i have wanted to make the danforth pullover since i first saw it probs a year ago now.. but it calls for quince & co. yarn. eeps! that's a hard one to come by out here, unless it's an online order....  and the stockholm scarf.. well you've heard me drool over that one (i mean.. well no i don't drool loudly... you know what i mean).

so yes. i'm an excited girl for this knitting season! i have to shout out a huge thank you to rachel of stitched in color, emma lamb, mollie of wild olive, and shannon of luvinthemommyhood who have gathered forces and are throwing this big celebration for us! you rock!!!!

has the knitting bug bitten you yet? if not, it should... real soon...

are you joining in with celebrate color? what are your fave fall colors? do you have a project already started? it doesn't even have to be knitted! sewing is all good too!! do share!!! this is one of my fave. topics, in case you didn't know  :)

  7. I love your style!! Great choices. I am a seasonal knitter who spends more time ripping than stitching (which is why I lose interest and only knit when it's cold out!!) I was already thinking of getting my needles out, but after seeing your pics, I'm ready to line up projects too!
