What was your inspiration?
The story unfolds about the inspiration for Gentle Breezes and the design process from concept to completion. You can read the story and see in-progress pictures at my blog here - http://jackie-es.com/the-designing-day/gentle-breezes-from-design-concept-to-completion.php
What are you most proud of?
The ends of the stole are done in a wide lace border reminiscent of breaking waves. Beads give a glint of sunlight off the waves. The main lace stitch pattern gives the feel of breezes and the gentle swells of the ocean.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Fittingly, for the sample shown I chose a gently variegated gray/blue/green yarn in a color called Ocean Breeze. But feel free to choose yarn and bead colors to match the picture story you imagine of gentle breezes on a morning or evening walk.
