I've been feeling a bit blue

Good thing I have ample blue stash. This is a sampling of blues, there's plenty more of each yarn.

Since I have 4 new projects in the planning and starting stages I can't blog about ~ or I'll ruin the surprise ~ I've decided to cast on something new for myself too. I'm leaning towards the Kidsilk Haze in shade 592 as Kim Hargreaves Trinket, minus the beads.

If you haven't seen Carolyne Roehm's books check them out. They're filled with incredibly photographed home, garden and recipe ideas. Her web site is inspiring. Be sure to read her bio, she's a multi talented woman who is also a dog and horse lover.

I have all but Carolyne's first book that is no longer in print. At Home With Carolyne Roehm is by far my favourite. It's set up by the seasons, page after page of gorgeous photos and recipes. Have a look at it next time you're in a book store ~ it's eye candy and a oft browsed coffee table book here at our house. Charlotte Moss's Winter House is one I pull out every winter too.

When The Blues strike me it's a good thing! :) Have a lovely day everyone!

Love your bowl of blue bliss :)

I used that shade of KSH to knit Birch and it's a favorite of mine. The trinket shawl would be a fabulous choice and I'm sure I'll knit that pattern someday as well :)

blue and white is so classic.
my first color scheme in my kitchen was blue and white, with a french provincial look.
that is a lovely stash of blues!

I love your blue stash shots - very pretty! The scarf you're planning on making is adorable, with or with out the beads. And thanks for the book recommendations - I'd never heard of her before, and her books look like just the kind that I love!

Such a great thing to be immersed in the blues! May you have many more days of that.

I'll be checking for those books asap!

Great pics. Definitely blue and gray over here. Crazy household and I can't seem to find time for blogs or knitting. Hope all is well with you!

Thanks for the great links. I started Trinket and lost interest. Maybe it's time to get back to it. I think it will be beautiful in that shade of blue. Lovely photos.

So I am soooo in love with all those gorgeous yarns. Any plans for them? I am knitting grey blue socks right now; they would fit in with your pile of goodness perfectly.

I saw that top photo on flikr and was drawn to it. I think it evokes a calm emotion! What a lovely pick of shades of blue.

Beautiful blues! I may be odd, but I love January! The bright blue sky and strong sunlight drown out the dreariness of this time of year! Today, however, it is very dreary out!

Oh these are so pretty - I need to get back to knitting!
