More on organic cotton and beaches. The picture is from Fiona Ellis' new book "Inspired Cable Knits" (with permission from the publisher.......) When Fiona first started to work on her book she asked me - and others - for yarn suggestions. I was thrilled to be able to give her skeins of organic cotton. I was equally thrilled when I saw the finished project. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined such a perfect combination of pattern and yarn.
The photo from "real life" - where Fiona took her inspiration for The Beachcombing Pillow is that of a beach. Actually the very edge of the land where the water eddys up on the sand and leaves wavy lines of different sea colours. It is quiet and subtle, as is the yarn; but it also invites one to imagine, to dream, to take that first step into a sea of inspiration!
The photo was taken by Lindsey Maier. For more on Fiona's book see:
Just 2 days to go and a ton of work to finish!
