A call to lovers of color

Do you need a jolt of color to get you going?  Well, I’ve got the ticket for you!

There are times when words just can’t express how you feel about something.  This is one of those times.

Zip over and take a look at a glorious work in progress by Vanessa Cabban of Do You Mind If I Knit.  The divine Miss V is working on a little piece of color heaven.

You’ve gotta check this out for yourself.


  1. Oh my gosh, Linda...that Fair Isle dress that Vanessa is knitting is absolutely gorgeous! She is truly talented. I am going to have to start following her because the things she makes are so wonderful and her blog is beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing that!



  2. Wow!! What gorgeous colors... I can't wait to see it with all the ends done (that looks like quite a job). Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. I agree, colors can lift us up! Have a JOYful COLORful Thursday, Linda. xxx

  4. Yay, colours! :D <3
    Looks fantastic!

  5. Thanks for the link Posy Linda. What a wonderful little blog!
    Hugs and Love Suex

  6. Thanks for the tip, what an amazing colour fix for this morning

  7. Hello sweet Linda, thanks for the tip - i visit Vanessa often. ;o)

    Have you visit this lovely blog - ?

    Many smiles and hugs from
    Annika to you sweet lady.

  8. Bonjour to you, Sibol Sister! For days now, I've been meaning to thank you for visiting my blog and kindly leaving a comment! I must admit, I love being called a Sibol Sister, although I must confess I've not made nearly as many squares for Mrs Twins as I'd have liked. Most of my time these days is spent 'helping' my husband to renovate this old farmhouse we live in in France - I can't wait to get all the work done so that I can concentrate more on crochet and knitting!

    I hope the weather improves in Florida soon. I've never been there but always had the impression that is has year-round sunshine. Mind you, I was told that about France and we get our fair share of rain here, too!

    I shall follow your blog with interest!


  9. Hi and thank you for visiting my blog. I am a big fan of 'Do you mind if i knit' and have been drooling over the dress for a long time! The colours are stunning aren't they? Thank you for your kind comments about the goodies i make x

  10. Hello Linda, every time I pop over to your blog and see that photo of Posy in your blog header, it makes me smile! She's such a SWEETIE! And thank you so much for this link to my blog! WOW! That's really wonderful what you say about my dress, thank you so much. It's also led me to other wonderful blogs, from people who've left me comments. This is how blogging grows and spreads, and we all get to know each other, it's lovely, isn't it? Love Vanessa xxx

  11. The colours a super and the knitting looks very complicated!
