My brains are scrambled. That's the only way I can describe my head as of late. So I'm going to send you to visit one of my favorite designers... Anne Hanson. She has such an eye for beauty in the everyday things as well as being an incredible designer. I especially love her lace and socks. (You can see all her patterns here.)
I recently started her Caricia after weeks of agonizing over the perfect yarn. I really wanted to use the Malabrigo sock in Indiecita that I had purchased...
but I only had one skein and I wanted to make a medium size version. In the end I decided to go ahead and make a one skein version because this yarn just really needed to be this shawl.
Please excuse the colors. I have found this yarn almost impossible to photograph.
Then when I saw Anne working on Trevi... I knew it would be next on my lace list. I was quick to order the kit from One Planet Yarn & Fiber when it was announced so I could use the same Pewter colorway of Handmaiden Sea Silk she had used. The yarn is just amazing. Again, I'm sure I haven't captured the colors but the subtle transitions of silvers, greens, and bronze are stunning.
So here I sit surrounded with beautiful yarns and gorgeous lace patterns... and I've spent my morning trying to pick out a sock pattern to start. Scrambled I tell ya.
