Inspiration Wednesday!

Vivid color is always my biggest inspiration.┬á I will be that colorful little old lady who wears whatever she wants ­čÖé much to the embarrassment of my kids. It’s already starting to happen and I really don’t see it toning down anytime soon!

Isn’t this Tencel lovely? It’s a bold and beautiful one of kind hand painted yarn. The fiber artist is from the Eugene Textile Center. She had so many gorgeous┬áchoices – it was hard to pick just one! With 550 yards of silky softness, I’m going to have to come up with a design that really shows off the gentle color changes. The yardage is perfect for a shawlette or a pretty infinity scarf.

When working with a variegated yarn Ive found that light and lacy stitches work best. The color changes seem to be more natural and blend better. I know planned pooling is really hot right now but I love the simple beauty of subtle color changes, too!

For now, I am swatching with this beauty – hopefully, I’ll have a new self-published pattern using it soon!
