Lazy knits....

I've decided to do the next hat in variegated colours.I like doing the rainbows and used to work in rows of 6 using 6 different colours, so I don't think that would look so good in a brimmed hat. I'll do the rainbows in a pull-down style but because I've been pet-sitting this weekend it was easier to do the variegated.

The sewing still awaits,but my family have arrrived unexpectedly for the weekend so I'll concentrate on the sewing up afterwards (yawns)..

Another beanie in a dark pinky-red with rainbow stripes is off-the-needles and awaiting sewing, as is the green basketweave.THEN I'll get round to publishing the next pics...promise!

I have been playing around with smiley central today, trying to find a new avatar. I'm not impressed - you copy and paste the html,then the website I'm trying to post into says it has no appropriate tags!I thought it would be a lot simpler than that...then when you go back to the image it's closed itself!Very annoying....Back to th serach engine for me....

Well I decided on a royal dark green for the basketweave with white stripes.Pics to follow soon - I haven't published the photo of the pink & yellow stripy one I did yet. It's not sewn up yet but it is off the needles. I will do some more sewing up tonight when I get bored with ribbing - which doesn't take long.

Next in line is another beanie, main colour a dark red, with the 4 rainbow stripes in it.

Another beanie got sewed up and finished last night.I'm trying to decide whether to another beanie in 4 colours again, or to start another basketweave hat, and in which colours, or to do another beanie in a base colour with the four rainbow stripes again.

Where do other people get their colour inspirations from?I've got plenty of colours, it's just choosing them and thinking, would those 2 go together or not. the last ideas came to me when I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the loo!
