May's Inspiration - Claude Monet

When I came across this art piece, I just couldn't resist...the reds, the olives, the browns...yum! I can't wait to paint this one. This month the yarns will go out on Monday, May 4, 2009 as I'm waiting on a new base yarn that's going to definitely be worth the wait! It's a nice tighter twist 2-ply superwash merino that's promises to be a joy to knit with!

Hope everyone's enjoying the slightly nicer weather we've been having! The painting is named The Artist's Garden at Argenteuil and doesn't Monet do a fabulous job of painting gardens?!

April's "Spoiler"

I really enjoyed painting this colourway - it's the first colourway I'd say is very man-friendly since it has a lot of earth tones in it. Hope everyone is enjoying it too! I love the sheen of the bamboo in the Bamboolicious yarn and the softness is wonderful too. Enjoy!

April's "Teaser"

I really like this month's colourway as it turned out how I was hoping it would. Definitely a manly colourway if you'd like to knit for the man in your life! The bamboolicious yarn gives the colours a bit of a muted feel which is perfect for this month's art inspiration piece. This colourway I love as it combines two of my favourite colours onto the same yarn. Enjoy!
