Eggbird Tweets! (And gets excited about colourful stuff)

Yip!  Eggbird is spreading her wings technology-wise.  You can now follow @EggbirdDesigns on twitter.  So far the vast majority of tweetings have been cake/yarn based, and I don't think you can go much wrong with cake and/or yarn!!  If you're on twitter too, pop by and say hello!  I'd love to hear from you :)


So anyway, back to this blogging business ;)

I've been at a bit of a loss for things to post recently...  So many things on the needles - so many ideas on the brain! - but nothing quite there enough to share.  But then I was sorting through my photos and had a flash of inspiration!  There was just so much colour - it was oozing out of every picture - colours enough to grab hold and give you a jolly good talking to!!  This, coupled with recently finishing Through The Language Glass by Guy Deutscher (a book which focusses on linguistic colour theories), prompted me to put together a sort of "greatest hits" of colours.  I plan to use these collages as a sort of aid to yarn-buying, since I sometimes struggle to visualise how one colour might look against another... You can click on any collage to make it larger


I really recommend the language book btw, even if you have only a passing interest in language or linguistics.  It's a fascinating read and unlike a lot of the non-specialist books in this field it actually gives an accurate account of current linguistic thought.
