What to knit with our new British Masham base.

So ive been a bit in a Ravelry rut at the moment, nothing is really shouting MAKE ME at me, i believe its me, as when i scroll through instagram im blown away by all the beauty, i think its when i HAVE to find something that i struggle. Once i started looking i found quite a few things i want to make with our new Masham Base . Im going to seperate the knitting from the crochet as otherwise this would just be too big.

Lets kick off with what I'm casting on. Maddie Harveys Winter Lights shawl. What a stunner of a shawl, those little 'lights' remind me of snowdrops. I'm using a really dark grey (static) for the background colour and Lana Obscura for the contrast, which is a natural background with neon pink, yellow and green splodged about.

This shawl just SHOUTS cosy doesn't it. I think mixed with the Masham base its one that i wouldn't want to take off. I could really go this shawl right now, i'm really cold! What colour would i do it in. I think Dispersion as its variegated but not wildly different colours OR gold, because classic.

These gloves have been on my to make list for so long, I think they are so cool, and my friend Mo has a fear of Octopi so freaking her out would be a bonus! Colour wise, i need to dye up some Idiot proof and Platinum blonde on this base as they would be perfect

So I actually cast this on in my Doll base with the colourway Nebula Burst, and now i'm debating whether i should maybe start one on the Masham? I think his shawl just lends itself to a British smooshy yarn! Now the question is, do i steal some Eldritch for it? Cause purple right?

There is something that is speaking to me about this jumper. whether its the V neck, the stitch pattern or the sleeves, i feel like i need one. and im not feeling very imaginative and id just go gold. However Lj once she gets over this headache would absolutely have it in PRTH.

Im going to end with this BEAST! i think a Masham LYS cardi would just be wonderful. i have no more words. i need 6. I think i want it in squamata,something about a green cardi.
