Love the colours....intrigued by what your wips might be

Sandra (Cherry Heart)

It's so true I think that knitting makes you appreciate all the colours. I think maybe it's the time you get to look at the yarn while you knit. Seeing all the subtle variations in the strands and combining colours for happy combinations!

To me, color is where it all begins! I love what you share -- always so timely and thoughtful.


Gorgeous photos, as usual! (Although that stack of blues is definitely calling my name!)


Beautiful photo's Andi! When I read the word woolly it made me think how differently I look at wool today~ Before becoming a knitter the word wool made me itch & scratch! Now, I find myself drawn to all the beautiful colors & textures of wool~
Love the quote from EZ & the links to new to me blogs was a fun way to enjoy my morning coffee~



You certainly are indeed!


Color...my bff, and knitting-such therapy for the heart and soul. The softness, smell and texture of yarn- even the itchy of wool sometimes is so wonderful. Lovely images today- you make it all looks o delish, Andi.


what a lovely post….i did sort of have to laugh; i have been thinking along the same lines----my knitting baskets are full of color, yet i wear little besides grey black and ivory….an occasional pop of something in a scarf, maybe. (I give a LOT away!!!!! the joy of knitting--feeds that inner need for color)


beautiful photos! that's part of what I love about yarn crafts... the colours!


Hi Andi! Nice to meet you. That quote is brilliant and I will bear it in mind next time I curse over a dropped stitch.

I love to see what kinds of colours and palates other yarn-lovers choose, it fascinates me. Yours are beautiful.

Seeing your stash is just making me itch to play in mine. Once the new bookcase is installed, I'll be cavorting with wool once again.

I didn't know you didn't like blue as much. (Or maybe I did and I forgot) Why is that?


I do love your photos Andi and seeing all the pretty wool makes my heart happy.


Oh I love that EZ quote!


Ah, as always a fresh look at the world. Love Cherry Lane's wintry landscapes. Your collection of blues is sublime.

Hi Andi and what a lovely post. I'm rubbish at knitting but your yarn basket is so inspiring....for the love of all things woolly.

During these very cold, bleak days of winter here on the east coast, it is warming to see your lovely post, Andi!

All lovely, but it's the naturally coloured yarns in the second shot that are calling loudest to me. About 30% of my stash is all the colours of the rainbow, the other 70% is greys and natural, neutral colours. No idea why they appeal to me most.

Thank you so much for joining as a January guest poster Andi :)


All those blues just make my heart sing!


What a beautiful collection of colourful wool! I can't wait to see what it is you are knitting with it. I think the red is calling my name today.


What an amazing collection of colour. I used to limit my knowledge of wool to only "natural" colours until I realized that you can get as bright as neon if you wanted to :)


Hello! Love your blog, I can definitely get me fix for all things woolly here....be back soon! :) x

Hi Andi, one of the little sayings in your blog hit a cord with me as I read it... so so true!
Love your collection of yarn too!
