i'm thinking about the palette for the next collection. i notice that whenever i begin this process, i start studying things around the apartment very intently. above are a few little colour vignettes that i've been looking at. 

choosing colours is at once exhilarating and crushingly disappointing. you need your imagination to run wild in order to choose fresh color combinations. you spend hours and hours carefully choosing the yarns only then to be brought back to earth with a thud because the supplier tells you that almost every colour you wanted is out of stock or discontinued. being small fry, i can't order the 20kg minimum to dye up custom colours, so then the shade cards come out again... it's guaranteed to happen every time, still, it is one of my favourite aspects of the job.
