My colour inspiration above is creeping into a lot of my work. This season I am totally in love with washed out faded 50's colours, well actually, not just this season, but since I can remember I have be enamoured with these shades. Splice mushroom and washed out eggplant with coral, green, and aqua, and it's a gorgeous combination of gentle feminine but chic and unpredictable result.
If you look at My Brood you can see that I have used these colours.

Found this lovely Patons knitting pattern from the 1950's which is just lovely as a colour palette from which to draw inspiration...
