Back in October, the wildly creative Elizabeth from Vice Yarns came over for a lovely visit. She also came bearing skeins of stunning yarn. Over the course of the evening, she asked if I would design a Fair Isle cowl to feature her Blurred Lines fingering weight yarn. I absolutely jumped at the chance because this new line featured spectacular colors hand-painted in gradients. In fact, she actually knitted up blanks, which she then painted to achieve the subtle changes between colors.
Here is what they look like wound into cakes:
In any event, Xena was the product of Ms. Vice's request.
