new wool

There are a few things I find more inspiring than new art supplies. Plump tubes of oil paint, pristine paintbrushes, primed canvases freshly opened from their plastic wrappings. Today, it's wool. I've found that with new colors come new ideas. I got my hands on a gorgeous crimson color, which already has spun itself into a beaded necklace of graduating sizes. A pale green, dark marine blue, and chocolate brown merino all await their fate. To be turned into something organic inspired, no doubt. And don't get me started on the natural fleeces. Soft, understated colors ranging from off-white to anthracite. I'm itching to roll up my sleeves and get my hands wet.
