This project was a huge undertaking for me, but I loved every minute of it. As the featured designer, I was given the task of designing a 4 piece collection along with choosing the yarn and color story. I loved being able to start from the ground up, selecting particular yarns for the vision I was after. The color story started out as a basic idea, but in the end, it was sort of dictated by which colors were available in the yarns I chose. You have NO IDEA how hard it is to select matching colors when you are dealing with different yarns and companies plus choosing them from a computer screen!
For this collection, I was inspired by a few different things. I wanted nice yarns that enhanced an otherwise plain stockinette stitch body. I wanted the bodies to be simple to knit, but still be able to teach a more experienced knitter a few tricks. And even though they were simple to knit, I wanted to add little details here and there to make them contemporary and fashionable, yet classic - something that you'll still be able to wear and cherish a few years down the road.
