Xena Cowl!

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:

Gorgeous, no?

In any event, Xena was the product of Ms. Vice's request.

Wow Christina,

I think I could have dyed something ugly and you would have created something fabulous because that, my dear, is out of this world! xo
