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.
