The calm before the storm (a new project)

Rain is on the way, and as it's the last day of school for over two weeks I'm making the most of the final few hours of quiet - it literally and metaphorically feels like the calm before the storm.

At times like these, there is only one thing to do - cast on! It had to be something quick, fun, colourful and portable - over the holidays we have a few family day trips and a short break planned, and my other knitting projects are too big to take. (I'll also be flying off for some 'yarny' fun with lovely friends, but more on that another day.)

YARN: Scheepjes* Merino Soft in colours 613, 633 and 610 
I'm not sure where the colour inspiration came from. It may have been the tulips - vibrant pink with a hint of blue - some new nail varnish or a basket of 'spring' coloured yarn, but there's a definite theme on my desk. There's no pattern or plan, I'm improvising. I'll let you know how it turns out.

*Affiliate: Merino Soft is available at Wool WarehouseDeramores and various international stockists
