Part of my inspiration for my new knitted shawl design Guinguette came from this book by Ingrid Fetell Lee: Joyful – The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness.
The idea of the author, backed by her thorough investigations is that some things are universally joyful!
Among these things are vivid colours and round shapes, especially when there are lots of them – like in a shawl knitted with bright colours and edged with a string of pompons!
And if you simply need some inspirations to choose the colours for your own Guinguitte, check out this blog post for details about the kits.
The pattern for the Guinguette shawl is available in my shop and on Ravelry.
