What was your inspiration?
The yarn company Colinton Angoras commissioned me to design a wide scarf/shoulder stole in a lacy stitch pattern using 3 skeins of their natural colored, un-dyed 1000 Mohair yarn (fingering weight thickness) with beaded accents in 2 colors.
This yarn already has lots of class. So I didn't want to overwhelm the design with a lot of beads. The plan was for just enough to give a touch of color here and there. Thus, the background on how the design got it's name A Touch of Beaded Class.
What are you most proud of?
A Touch of Beaded Class was presented at the TNNA Columbus June 2011 Fashion Show. You can see it in the segment from around 3:30 to 3:59 of this YouTube video.
