At Vogue Knitting Live we received cute cards from Pantone & VK with a color selection for Spring 2012. I’ve loved the card and even more the colors! However, at that moment, I didn’t research about what was going on between Pantone, VK and this color list. This event is always so fantastic, there’s so much happening at the same time that we can’t afford to miss a thing!
But as a curious knitter and marketing person, I already had registered in my “mind files”: pantone/colors/fashion! And as I was browsing on the net, reading fashion magazines and observing fashion store’s windows, there was something here and there about Pantone and Fashion Colors! Read more
I have already mentioned how much I likeVickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn by Caron! The perfect roving that mix acrylic and wool and enhance the stitches. The color pallete is perfect! And the price is spectacular!
I started to swatch with different colors, looking for an elegant curvy horizontal shape and the Aimée Cowl came up! I love the way that the stitch motif creates volumes and depressions that simulate cables! And the I-cord Finishing puts everything pretty well together! I hope that you appreciate this fast knitting project! Read more
I surrender to the colorful possibilities of chochet, more precisely of the granny squares!
The good news for me, at the moment, are the “simply-fast-colorful” crochet projects that I’m working on!
The first result of Aloísio’s class is my first granny blanket! And I’m looking forward to meet another adorable friend, Sandra Jay, in São Paulo in a few weeks! She will teach me how to mend the grannys as I go! YAY! Read more
Do you know when you hit it off with something and loves everything related to it? Well, that’s how I feel about the Boho or Bohemian look! I love this way to dress up! Read more
How to describe the relation between knitters and yarn? I simply don’t know! Actually I think I could tell a few things about it, but nothing could compare to the feeling of finding an exquisite composition or rediscovering a traditional one that up to that moment wasn’t that appealing. Nothing could ever describe that tiny moment we catch our breath because of an unusual blend of colors on a hand died yarn or the unpretentious beauty of a yarn that has been in the market for long. Nothing can really describe the speed of though when the soft touch of a yarn brings up affective memories and awakens the feeling of ease! Read more
