Knitting Inspiration: you know, I’m not sure what this theme is. It’s still autumnal in color and coziness, but definitely going in a more geometric direction, perhaps as a foreshadowing to Winter. I can at least tell you that these patterns are only from two designers, which I didn’t realize when they first caught my eye, but beyond that I’ll have to let the pictures tell you what my verbal powers are failing to explain.
Sources are, as always, in the captions, and for those of you who employ some sort of wizardry to use tumblr on your mobile devices, they are also below.

Are there any tumblrs out there who blog primarily about spinning and/or dyeing yarn? If you’re one of them, please reblog this, as I’d love to follow you! I do some spinning myself and check the appropriate tags, but they’re slow at times. My blog is kind of a “reblog whatever I feel like” kind of thing, so don’t feel like you’d need to follow me back or anything. :U
This is my side blog exclusively for unspun fiber and spinning. It’s very low traffic and mostly reblogs of pretty yarns/fibers, but now and again I’ll get into a discussion, or post pictures of finished yarns (and some finished objects, if they’re handspun). Generally still less than five posts a day, and it goes silent for weeks during bad health times.

I ended up liking this more than I thought I would. The brown is very red, and it was throwing me rather badly while it was still in the braid.
