COLOUR INSPIRATION: ST AIDAN'S NATURE RESERVE

There's no doubt that I'm a visual person, and I'm lucky enough to live somewhere with natural beauty all around me. When choosing colour combinations for a knitting project, I always think the best starting point is to see what nature does. Very often it comes up with ideas you'd never think of! This week I'd like to share this picture of the wonderful St Aidan's Nature Reserve, where I go birdwatching every week. The crisp blue sky against greens and browns of the earth led me to think of our Kilcarra Tweed range by Knoll and how great these four shades work together, just like they do when I look out at it from the bird hide.

Interested in Birdwatching too? Book on one of Linda Jenkinson's wonderful Start Birding walks.

Knoll Kilcarra Tweed £4.10 per 50g ball.
A genuine Donegal: a colourful, rustic tweed yarn in versatile aran weight. Fabulous for cabled jumpers, cardigans and accessories, the tweedy nepps also add interest to plain stitch patterns and blend beautifully in colourwork.
