Creating a Mood

I was inspired for my latest design by a picture in one of the knitting magazines I read. I saw the picture and fell in love with the colors. So I tried to create a mood board. We have been doing the mood board thing for the FDL challenges. This way everyone has a visual inspiration in addition to a theme. I had purchased (yes, I know, should not be buying any yarn right now) some new yarn~just 3 little, bitty, skeins... and felt the need to make something with one of them just to see how this new yarn knit up. Beautiful in a word. Soft, stretchy, fun. And when I received the wholesale order of ribbon the wonderful ladies through in a bunch of samples of beautiful colors. So after playing around with the ribbon and finishing the capelet, I put my new "board" to use. I love the yellow and black. Matches the studio perfectly. So I leave you with the finished capelet. I found this awesome vintage sparkly piece in one of my button jars, it added just the touch of bling I was looking for!

Tantra is right. I honestly do not know how you continually come up with such amazing designs. To be able to look at a photo and be inspired is something that I wish I had the talent to do!
