Sophie Digard and me

Still infatuated with those Sophie Digard designs. Here's how my scarf turned out:



12 inches x 60 inches. And since Sophie signs hers with a label, I had to, as well. I think I'm on the right track. I like how the colours work together, but I think maybe smaller motifs might work better next time.



In this photo, you can see the cone of white cashmere I bought here that I dyed with Wilton food colouring to get the gorgeous coral skein and the warm yellow-green. The cashmere is lovely and soft. I'm playing with some off-centre circles, and putting them together free-form.

Sophie's designs also include bags made from her crocheted 'fabric', as well as embroidered scarves. Doesn't embroidery sound like fun?

  3. It's beautiful, Cheryl. I REALLY hope you will keep this for yourself. I'd really like to see a post of how you are doing the dying. Curious minds want to know :)
