Hello everyone,

As promised on our last Wirsit Inspo blog here are all the inspiration pictures we have posted on our Instagram and Facebook.

    I look forward to these pairings! In fact I purchased the yarn colors in the Laburnum and Alium photo from my LYS yesterday and have spent this afternoon choosing charts for a Fair Isle jumper using these glorious colors! You have inspired me to make up my own. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time. Thank you!

    These pairings are such a great idea. I always find selecting colours for fairisle patterns quite stressful. Keep them coming and I am also enjoying the scenery as well….so pretty.
