What was your inspiration?
I love clean and simple lines in a design and a classic traditional look. I believe it adds an elegance that cannot be acheived otherwise.
Although I adore colour and use it often I can also see great value in using the colours of our natural fibers as they appear in nature. I find this to be expecially true with handspun yarn. If the design is right the handspun yarn will really "sing" in your project as it will be the focus itself with it's lovely subtle variations and textures.The eye will not be distracted and confused by the multitude of colours often found in handspun yarns.
