After my flirtation with mad multicolour combos, variegated colourways and funny textures I'm suddenly hankering for solids and neutrals. Basically, when it comes to yarn, bring on your finest grays and creams! Of course other solid colours are most welcome - that pink baby alpaca lurking in the stash is looovely - but I think variegated beauties are in the past for now (although I still love my very first Koigu socks).
I think it's just so that I'll have an excuse to cover the FO with buttons, ribbons, embroidery, beads etc etc and hence have more reason to purchase these type of lovelies. I think I may ask for this book for Christmas.
That of course does not stop me from pawing colorful yarn pretties, but it is a step in the right direction..
Here is my neutral-tastic haul from iKnit day:
It was lovely to meet up with the ladies, although it was harder than expected to stick with my neutrals policy. Especially with candyfloss-like roving on offer:
Is it just me, or does it remind you of My Little Ponies?
I managed to take a snap of someone trying on a 'funky' knitted dress. Hm. Looks like someone has been knitting with with neon pink intestines.
I guess the hat on the left is quite cool though.
