‘Tis the season for hollyhocks.
Here, in the garden this morning, where they have self-sowed and come up annually …
Inspiration comes in many forms, and rather than questioning my yarn choice, I just went with my gut. It is Sundara Fingering Merino Cashmere in Flower Studies #45. Sort of a Crayola
orange meets pink and coral. Frankly, I didn’t really like it much. If someone had wanted to buy it from me, I’d have been happy to sell it.
I don’t know that I see myself wearing a screaming coral-and-orange shawl. Maybe it will become a wardrobe staple. Maybe it will become a gift. At this point, I haven’t a clue.
Just a compulsion to knit this yarn into this project. Away we go.
