I feel as though Japan’s humidity has decided to follow us across the pacific and the continent, and settle on top of us once again. Although it truly is not a debilitating a humidity as in the land of the rising sun.
But the stickiness and warmth has whet my appetite for a project of cray-cray proportions:
I’m dying for this. And it’s done on US size 3 needles. Which means it will take forever. So of course I set myself a truly unrealistic goal of January 2014. I have a business trip to San Diego on January 11. It’s a yarn industry trade show, so I always try to bring my best finished pieces because I know the audience will totally appreciate them. They will know the exact pattern, and they will touch the hem and know the exact yarn. And they will see (but not mention) any mistakes. The pressure is on.
I also want this in a blue and white, but less of a delft blue and slightly more green (but still not teal). I want to wear it with black leggings, and my awesome boots.
Here’s the yarn I found:
It’s called anemone. The white is called popcorn. And take another gander at the neckline–it’s in a 3rd color. I’m going with a bright lemon yellow.
I’ve been wanting to use this color for some time–and I’m glad I waited, because Pantone says its a hot color for fall 2013
I hope it’s still on trend for January.
