It looks so pretty :) i’ll definitly try my hand on it. Ooooo tuff question … i think you’re using lilac??? X) good luck with work.
Ayesha, you know me very well! Lilac is still one of my favorite colors, but nope for this project ;)
Isn’t it a lovely yarn? :D
It looks gorgeous! I will have to try it! I do have a question with Bamboo yarn though, do you have any tips to avoid the yarn from twisting up so much?
Twisting? To be honest, I almost forgot that bamboo yarn may twisting (like Katia Bamboo even if I’m still love that yarn ;) Maybe because I’ve used bamboo blends lately. And this one (70% bamboo, 30% silk)is not exception too and doesn’t twist AT ALL! What a dream :)
Are u working with lotus? The colors Look so beautiful and that weight is one of my favorites I have to try it!
Judy, we have discussed lilac with Ayesha (which called lotus here) Not lotus ;)
WHAT ABOUT MAGENTA?
I think to try Magenta as well and Sapphire for fall designs probably, but I’m working with another Amazing color now hint: I have done a mini- collection in that lovely color in a past ;)
Maybe Royal, well if it is not I’ll just wait to see it.
OMG, exactly – Royal Blue ;) Hmm, it’s weird that I’ve just saw this your comment…
