Do you remember the fabulous crochet patterns I featured last month? Do you remember this shawl by Sharon Silverman?
Sharon is the author of Tunisian Crochet: The Look of Knitting with the Ease of Crocheting and the creator of some really beautiful patterns. She and I got talking, and it turns out she admired my yarns as much as I admired her designs. And I was so flattered when she asked if I would create a colourway for her to use in a new design!
(I think this is the thing that I like most about the fiber arts community: the way that people work together — and really want to work together — to create beautiful things. Fiber people are great people.)
I began to think about colours — I wanted to give her something really special to work with. In my mind, I was seeing something lovely to drape around the shoulders, over a beautiful evening dress… something as soft as mist…
Sharon sent me a sneak peak at the design this week, and it’s as light and as gorgeous as the yarn it’s made for. I can’t share the design with you yet, but I can give you a quick glimpse of the yarn.
This is Evening Fog, a delicate mix of soft greys and the lightest misty blue, in Luna Laceweight 80% merino/20% silk yarn. And, if you like it, it will be in the shop in time for the pattern’s release.

Lovely design and beautiful yarns color combinations!
Your yarns are really beautiful.
How beautiful is that? I’m always encouraged by the way people seem to understand each other in the fiber community. Your colors are lovely.
