Just off the needles and blocking now: A stitched model for a new design that I’ve titled “Wisps of Smoke Ring”. It combines the heavy drape of Tilli Tomas Rock Star and Plié silk yarns, the lightness and fluidity of lace, and the sparkle of beads. I really hate to part with this baby – very pleased with how it has turned out – but need to mail it off to Tilli Tomas this week for their photography session.
Another just off the needles and to-be-blocked: A lace wrap in a new design technique that I will publish a pattern for that “reconstructs” the color sequences of hand-dyed variegated yarn; this one uses Schaefer Yarns Andrea 100% silk in the Elena Piscopia colorway. If you get the sense that I like silk, you aren’t wrong, lol.
Next to go on the needles: Project samples for a week long class titled ” A Winter Wonderland in Beads & Knitted Lace ” that I am teaching at John C. Campbell Folk School starting Dec 2. Yikes – that’s only a few days away. I really have to get crackin’ on these.
Have a good week!
