I am Deborah. I am fortunate to be able to spend my days doing the things I love most in life: knitting, sewing, designing, cooking, baking, reading and writing. I am trying to learn, with an open mind, as much as I can from this life without having to repeat my mistakes or the mistakes of my parents.
Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
Dream in Color sent me two skeins of their wonderful Starry sock yarn. Starry is the glitzy sister of Smooshy. One can be subbed easily for the other. Want sparkle? Use Starry. Want warm, wonderful wool without the glitz? Use Smooshy. Using only one skein each of two contrasting colors, you can knit both a hat and a pair of socks. So, you can be clothed in this lovely fiber from head to toe. Diamonds are Forever is an easy colorwork design. It works up fast and is a fun project. Because it's stranded, you have double the wool for extra, smooshy warmth. The hardtwist lends itself beautifully to the fine stitch definition desired in colorwork. Both Starry and Smooshy are machine washable. Another plus! The cover items employ Amber Glass and Bermuda Teal, but Dream in Color offers such a pretty, varied palette of colors, the possible combinations are nearly limitless!
