My new favourite pattern.
Or is it this way up?
I love it either way. The photos really don’t do justice to the colours of this beautiful Portuguese yarn, a warm natural and a complex heath green.
But hopefully you get the picture.
The shade cards for the yarn I’d like to use for my colourwork idea arrived and I have poring over them…
So many to choose from that it is kind of baffling. I’m finding the process similar to creating a garden- far easier if you have a some parameters to work within because a blank canvas can be overwhelming. I do have some clear parameters but the process is definitely making me define where I want to go with this- questions like, how willing and confident am I to trust my own sense of colour and pattern? Do I have the diligence to work carefully and consistently through the process and can I broaden my vision to see what will really work, rather than just get distracted or disabled by the glut of choices? And, if this is something I want to produce to sell, how much do I follow my own colour choices and how much should fashions in colour influence me? This process is such a great thing for me because I can be a bit of a dreamer! So, now to make the final choices… ; )
