There's something exciting about the riot of yellowy greens that's popping up on the trees in the neighbourhood. Photo by garden beth, Flickr There's so much potential in that mix of tints, shades and tones. Energy that's been locked up for months, waiting for just a bit of sunshine and a whisper of rain – a new beginning. I think I know how that feels. So each time I look out the window, I'm finding new inspiration. I've been Googling all sorts of green things. On Craftgawker I was looking for whatever came up under "green": On Etsy I was trying to find craft supplies that would inspire a new project (LOVE the green buttons): On Ravelry, I was on the hunt for a pattern that would make the most of two skeins of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock mediumweight that I've been squirrelling away for the last year. The colourway is Irish Girlie Green, and it's just the thing for a little spring knitting. After a long, leisurely look through (what seemed like) a million options, I clicked on the Sweet Oak Shawl by Megan Goodacre. It had just the right look for my beloved green yarn, and it's the perfect mix of interesting lacy patterns to keep my attention and give my lace-making skills a workout. What colours are inspiring your creativity this spring? Are you a green person like me?
