Yarn: Vinnis Serina, a 100% luxurious bamboo yarn with a rich lustre and a natural drape. It is hand dyed - colour "Storm" and I used about 140gr
Pattern: Drops 82-6 from Drops Design in size Medium
Yay, I got to hook something in my beloved Vinnis yarn again! No matter how many other different yarns I try out, I simply love using Vinnis more than anything else. It is luxurious and the colourways are just right up my alley. I do not like hues and shades and Vinnis feed my obsession with tones and tints just beautifully. By the way, take a look at the article The Difference Between a Hue, Tint, Shade and Tone for more on colours.
The entire family also favour wearing and dressing the house in neutral colours, a perfect antithesis to our colourful lifestyle! Neutrals are perfect for travelling and can always be spruced up with a few interesting accessories. The below images provide a glimpse of The Teen's current likes in life and can be found on two of my Pinterest accounts namely MadameX and Raw Rustic. Some of the items are available from the fabulous Canadian Mandula. Oh man, if ever I take a trip to Canada, it will include a spree at this store!
The Teen selected her own pattern and yarn and I hooked the top over two evenings. I gave her numerous choices for the pattern, but she wanted something simple that she could wear with her jeans and boots, over her ballet leotard or to the pool. I am quite impressed by how it turned out as the pattern on the Drops Design website looked quite 80's - grrrrr.
Have a great weekend and a big hello to all my new followers!
