Inspiration: Primrose Stole
Spud & Chloe Fine. It's a superwash wool and silk blend and it blocks beautifully. The pattern is available through Tangled online magazine. What was I thinking? One of my cousins, who lives out of state and I don't get to see often, and I re-connected on Facebook a while back. Reading my posts and seeing my work, Stephanie made a comment about wanting a scarf. At the time, I was so swamped that I thought to myself, "If the Divine Mother herself asked for a scarf, it would be hard to find the time". That got me thinking, what could I make that would be worthy of the Mother of God? (cue choirs of angels) I designed this pattern to be light and airy. I love the wool/silk blend. The yarn also comes in lovely ecru and pale blue colors that I used for the proposal. They are join-as-you-go squares and I wanted something lacy. After the book, I'm all about join-as-you go ;) I think it turned out really well. I wish I had a photo of the before and after blocking, because it is nothing short of spectacular.
