I have been getting the urge to make something tiny lately… my limit was 2mm needles, so I went hunting for some lace-weight yarn.
I found a lovely colour-way from Schoppel; a gradient lace-weight that drifts from greens through to pinks, passing on it’s way slate blues and soft purples.
I have a little something in mind for it’s use so I began swatching.
I have divided the yarn into smaller balls of each colour to enable the use of the feather and fan stich. Why did I not think the do this before with gradient yarn?? Colour-work may not be quite so pricey now!
The shades in the yarn reminded me so much of spring… what do you think?
Where do you draw your inspiration from? Do you find yarn first? A pattern? A stitch you want to play with? Or do you have a different method?
