Oh my, I just had a really good mail day, and my needles are itching to cast on a new design with this yarn, BUT I can't decide what bead color I should use for it!
I bet you need some background to help you decide which bead you like best.... this design is destined to be part of a super secret special project with Swiss Wulle Festival and Siidegarte. The yarn is Siide-Nobel, a luxurious blend of silk and baby camel (yes, I said baby camel!) and it is going to make the most gorgeous secret project ever!
You might remember that I met Fides and Gaby when I was in Switzerland last summer and that I fell in love with both them and their yarns. During my visit Fides and Gaby loaded me up with yarn to design with (it's an occupational hazard of mine). I received a sweater's quantity worth of Siide-Buschper which has already been knit up in a sweater that will be released later this summer (see sneak peek below!) and two skeins of Siide-Fideel.
Under the Same Sky, a collaboration with native knitwear designer Nadia Crétin-Léchenne. Isn't this shawl stunning?
Siide-Fideel I got last summer, but there is no way I have time to join in on the Under the Same Sky KAL, no matter how gorgeous and fun to knit I think this shawl is!
So, since I am asking you for help choosing beads, I figure in exchange one of you should get to win them so you can join in on the KAL in my stead...
