in her pattern description, thea mentions that the marble shade really spoke to her and it’s true—that shade has a really interesting sparkle to it.
but then barb and i got on ravelry last night to check out the test knitter’s projects and wow, there are some stunning examples in other shades too! glennae and sariMor chose the slate shade, while blueberryhill went with marble and made some mods to the pattern. carie knit hers from kent DK in white sand and it’s spectacular, too.
what beautiful design and stitch work everyone has done with this project; thank you everyone!
we borrowed thea’s prototype when she brought it to rhinebeck and david took some photos of it on sarah back in the fall
thank you thea, for designing an incredible sweater in our yarn! read more about thea at her blog, baby cocktails, or peruse her designs on ravelry. over the weekend, laura will be turning her designer spotlight on thea so we can learn more about her and her design work.
i have more to add but i have to run to a meeting, so i’m going to have to come back later to add that, haha. busy busy . . .
and cold (that’s the inside temperature on my kitchen windowsill). we all NEED a nice warm cozy sweater.
well, at least we got the furnace fixed with not too much trouble; it was a chilly few days earlier this week.
ok really, i gotta run, sorry; be back later!
