when my friend erica at kollage yarns sent me this creamy yarn to play with, i knew immediately that i wanted to surprise her with a wedding gift knit from it. i had a lily of the valley motif earmarked in my book of stitch patterns, which knit up perfectly in this yarn and and my hopes for a beautiful bridal gift were confirmed.
in celebration of all things loverly, we’re releasing the pattern just in time for a valentine treat. i’m so happy for my friend; getting married is the start of a wonderful life adventure and i wish her and her husband matt all the best on their journey.
this is the second or third time i have knit a project in kollage creamy and each experience has been a complete pleasure. kollage has a wide selection of unique fiber blends and colors, which they enthusiastically offer to support the work of independent designers. please take a moment to tour the kollage website and take a look at their luscious yarn offerings.
many, MANY thanks to my friends vanessa and nan for their beautiful test knitting and helpful feedback on this pattern. i say it every time, but really what would we do without them?
and last but certainly not least, my admiration and gratitude to my beautiful friend kim and my talented husband david for bringing in this incredible photo shoot—they make a GREAT team, don’t they?
