Inspired by Rainbows

It’s one of my favorite times of year, September issue season! Magazines thick with fashion inspiration to help me plan updates to my wardrobe and inspire my knitting. Honestly, September issues are probably the only time of year I really read magazines anymore but I love this burst of inspiration they give me. And I’m already excited because color is everywhere and I keep seeing rainbows!

Glamour Magazine Cover September 2018

Tiffany Haddish is on the cover of Glamour magazine wearing an awesome rainbow sweater from ASOS that I totally plan to use as inspiration.  I also learned from her quick interview in O Magazine that her secret talent is that she knits! I was so excited by that! I also go inspiration from a completely unexpected source…a dog leash and harness.
Dog leash
I always get Zee dog leashes and harnesses for the girls because I love their fun prints and colors. And the moment I saw their new Primsa print I knew I had to order it. And I already planned on making two rainbow sweaters this year. I want to make my wool Tecumseh sweater I plan on starting in September with a rainbow color palette! And then use the leftover rainbow yarn from that project to make myself a cardigan. But now I want to add some black and white stripes in there like Jellybean’s leash! I didn’t expect to see all these rainbows and get excited but now I’m itching to start my next knitting project. What’s inspiring your knitting and knitting color palettes?
