She wanted to come over and see all my mohair-ish yarns. Well, my "studio" is not really a studio anymore!
All my bins of yarn are actually not in this room, but even though I tried to organize them when re-packing/moving them, it's just not a situation to bring a client to.
So, I spent an afternoon going through the bins in the freezing basement and picked out some striping yarns, some gentle coloured yarns, and some mohair-ish yarns and schlepped them to her!
We came up with a design and I got to work. I didn't like the tan yarn we chose, so I made an executive decision to get something else. The other yarns were lace weight/DK solid coloured, smooth mohairs, and the tan was Patons' Divine, which I use in the layering blankets for it's lumpy, shady, bulky, textured look. It would have been fine for a brim, but it was also to appear further up in the stripe pattern. I switched it out for Patons' Lace Sequins, but I had to trim all the sequins off :(
I made a couple different flowers, one I didn't show here was in the cream, with more open loops.
Isn't that the sweetest picture? The boy was 8lb, and the girl, 5lb!! Jennifer is a wonderful photographer and I LOVE when our collaborations result in fulfilling her creative vision!
