The color inspiration came from a skirt that I wore on my birthday. A very bright peachy orange.
I've gotten so obsessed, that I even did an acrylic nail overlay with this color.
So, of course I pick out 3 lace panels and start testing them out with the yarn. At one point I had to rip it out and choose a different pattern #3, because it just wasn't working. But that's all in the fun process of designing right?
My goal is to have something that is feminine, pretty, light and lofty. Yet, still warm enough to ward off an autumn chill.
Here I am, finishing 1 repeat of one of my lace panels. A little early to see the magic happen, but the kinks are worked out and I'm taking notes. I already have two offers for test knitters. Knitters are such beautiful people. They have such faith in the end product, even though the path isn't fully mapped out. I love it.
I finally got my FULL ChiaoGoo Needle set.
I love how the package comes with a pocket for the needle gauge and keys for tightening the cables. Everything is labeled nicely and has its specific compartment. I can't wait to put new stitch markers in the little pocket.
