Inspiration


TABULA RASA. Neutrals is a creative adventure into the depths of my yarn stash, this time into the neutral abyss of whites and grays, with a few delicate speckles invited to play along.
Each skein is a story waiting to be written, a tale to be told, a portrait to be sketched.
And from such a blank slate arises this collection of accessories and wraps, each of which features a texture or a pattern stitch pleasing to the mind and to the eye, allowing the yarn to speak to the senses as it is transformed into its fulfilled destiny.
Happy knitting,
Justyna

Doodle around with Dots and Lines, and a single skein of DK will be transformed into a warm, slouchy hat that’s fun to knit. The engaging pattern stitch features cluster-like dots staggered along long spines of rib. Let the rich texture speak for itself by using a solid or tonal yarn, and leave the top bare or punctuate it with a coordinating or contrasting pompom.

The harvest moon is past and the temperatures are dropping day by day. A shawl is just the thing to ward off the rapidly approaching chill. Something lovely. Something cushy. Something fast! Sonay knits up in a hurry in luscious chunky weight wool and combines the ease of garter stitch with the diversion of leafy lace, cleverly worked on the bias and beautifully framed with an eyelet edging.
