Yesterday I posted this little newbie to Rav.
I am in love with her and of course I wish to share her with the entire world! So with the help of a cadre of angels also known as my beloved testers, I am preparing a pattern. And the pattern’s name is Intertidal.
This design is about tides and the moon and how things are pulled off center in the most perfect way. It is about being in the middle of all the crazy cosmic influences. It is, like Chelsea Morning, designed to showcase an interesting color pairing.
In case I have not said it enough, I adore Isager Spinni. Spinni is like my yarn BFF, all rough and scratchy but at the same time lofty and warm and cozy and oh the colors. You’d think I was being paid, the way I rave about Spinni, but no, I give Spinni my love for free.
I was thinking the other day, Why do I like to design with color blocks? I believe it has to do with how I shop for yarn. I don’t appreciate most colors alone. They just don’t grab me that way. I only like blacks and greys alone. Colors, for me, need other colors to play with. Contrasts in temperature and brightness and saturation and hue get me thinking and feeling and wanting to experiment. And that leads to impulse yarn purchases. Oh, yes.
So, this is Intertidal and I hope you love her too!
