Water Lilies (2007)
Water lilies, beads on silk/merino, 2007, is in full bloom after blocking. Unfortunately, as I said before, it is quite impossible to capture the dance of the sunlight on those crystal beads.
Frankly, I can't be more pleased with this design. The length and the fit are just right, and I like the contrast between color and texture of yarn and beads. The very subtle picot edging brings both decoration and elasticity to the cast off edges.
To my disappointment, my mother does not want another pair of indoor gloves. Maybe it's because she hasn't seen them yet? Water lily is one of her favorite flowers, and she always likes silk. I hope she'd change her mind when she opens the gift box next Sunday.
We went to a friend's place for dinner yesterday, and as a result, I did not finish the pattern for the gloves. The mysterious WIP cannot be called a FO, either. I can't believe no one of you have replied... all right, I'll show it next time, and the blog contest stays open for another two days. The winner gets to pick a pattern, be it Aegean or Water Lilies. Hi there, give it a try!
