Moodboard Monday - Extremely Colourful Decisions...

Something a little bit different for you guys on this first Monday of the summer! A few moodboards of inspiring knits. 

I am in need of a juicy project to really sink my teeth into. I have patterns that I should be working on, but because you just can't fight your creative impulses and what I'm really jonesing for right now I can't find in any of my current designs-in-progress. I am obsessed with the idea of working with every colour in the rainbow to make a beautiful, colourful, cheery knit. I'm thinking a wee sweater for a little girl I know with a birthday coming up. The trouble is I just can't decide what direction to go in. Do I aim for colourful, somewhat traditional fair isle motifs?

Or do I throw convention out the window and knit something modern and graphic and potentially a little wacky?

My lovely urn of sock yarn scraps is overflowing and in order to make room for more leftovers I'd better get started. I have a pair of socks that is nearly finished and if I add the leftover ball to this tower I'm afraid the whole thing will topple over! I expect I'll land somewhere in between my two design directions. Funky-fair isle. I'll keep you posted!
