Now I've finished my Project Yarnway design I've had a chance to sit down and come up with a design idea for the Design Along group (DAL) I joined on Ravelry as well (I've got the designing bug!).
The theme for the Summer Challenge is Gardens
I submitted this picture as my inspiration:
And then came up with Cherry Blossom Gloves as my design Idea. They are a bit difficult to explain so I'll let my sketch mainly do the talking :)
There basically fingerless gloves based around a triangle shape with little crochet cherry blossoms on the front.
I'm going with making the Cherry blossoms and gloves from a light pink yarn. Possibly some dark pink yarn for the middle of the flowers along with some little beads in the centre too to add extra detail :)
Now its just down to buying the yarn (I've only got a little bit of light ) and starting to knit!!! After working out tension etc... first of course :)
I have a while though as the designs aren't due till the 25th August so they will definitely be finished!
I LOVE DESIGNING! :D
See you all soon,
