Quick Photo, New One-Day Neckwarmer

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

This one will be a sample at Threadbear Fiberarts, in Lansing, Michigan. I really like this one. (You knew that… light turquoise and dark turquoise would work for me!)

The aqua/lighter yarn is Cascade Venezia (color 105), a silk/wool yarn with many plies. The structure makes it look lustrous and tubelike. It’s wonderful yarn.

The teal/darker yarn is also silk & wool, but a handspun single-ply yarn from Manos del Uruguay. It’s called Silk Blend (color 3043). They work very well together.

Between the two yarns, I achieved both color contrast and texture contrast. One is shiny and one is subtly silky. It has a lovely drape.

The shop plans to carry the pattern for this project soon. I’ll bring them the sample at the same time they get the patterns.

Please buy at a local shop whenever you can. However, if you are not in Lansing, Michigan, you can buy the pattern as a PDF download here.

OR better yet, ask your Local Yarn Shop to carry my line of patterns. They can write me at Lynn AT ColorJoy.com and get details.
