Design in Progress

The Jordana Paige Tool Butler giveaway winner is.... Julia Rosalinda! Congrats!!

Here's a little glimpse of a new design I'm working on.... I know I showed you guys another snippet a few weeks back of a different design- it's done and is being tested, with an expected release next month.

Edit: the yarn is Tanis Fiber Arts Silver Label 100% Mulberry Silk, in 'Dove'

The design process always makes me a bit nervous- the hours spent that often result in ripping back to make changes are always a daunting, and for this item, all the magic happens towards the end of the knit. I'm hoping that how it works out in my head is how it'll work out in reality!

Oooh, pretty. And the yarn you've chosen, with the sheen and in that particular colour, makes it look like really fancy chainmail. Can't wait to see the finished item!

This is very pretty...and that yarn looks divine! I think the design process would be too nerve-wracking for me. That's why I sit back and let you more talented folks do it for me! ;)

I know exactly what you mean about being nervous during the design process, especially towards the end. But this is sure to be a stunner!! The pairing of yarn and stitch pattern alone is wonderful! Can't wait to see more. :)
