For the longest time, I’ve never been a big fan of the colour yellow. I’ve always been afraid of it, I couldn’t imagine wearing it. I always thought that it was because I have yellow (blonde) hair.
But then something happened. It’s been a slow and gradual process, but I’ve started moving toward yellow. Not all yellows though, lets take it one step at a time. Below is my first acquisition of yellow, delicious and buttery.
I finally gave in and I dropped into Sunspun on the weekend. A well-placed picnic across the road was all the reason I needed for a visit. Wow it’s changed, quite a bit. It’s fabulous!
There were so many new yarns I felt it took some time to get my bearings. It’s a totally new store, what a treat!
I picked up some naturally dyed yarn, (the yellow) and this deep orange… another unusual colour for me, what’s going on?!
All I know is, there is a puffy yellow jacket at Uniqlo that is calling my name.
Whilst at Sunsoun, I also picked up the Stashbot publication by Hannah Fettig. I thought it would be quite useful to take with me to Stitches.
In the mail this week, I received my Stranded in Oz club instalment. It’s truly stunning to look at, yum.
This week I completed my secret project…
And I began reading Amy Tan’s ‘The Valley of Amazement‘.
I’m also on Aunty watch, and getting a little bit excited.
See what everyone else is knitting and reading this week by checking out Ginny’s blog.

Oooh that’s a lovely yellow! I know what you mean re: slowly coming around to the colour. I want to love yellow but I am scared of looking ridiculous teaming it with my mousy brown hair. Maybe one day I will be brave enough! (in the mean time I will need to stick to ridiculous quantities of Melburnian black)
(oh, this is impostinator/Anna, by the way – I changed blogs again because apparently I have commitment issues!)
I haven’t knit with the yellow yet, so I haven’t had a chance to adorn it, that will be the true deciding factor, as it seems Uniqlo no longer has yellow puffy jackets.
Best of luck with your move! Melbourne will miss you 🙂
Naaww – thanks! It’s not for that long (thankfully) but I will miss Melbourne right back!!
