Hooray! My design submission to Dream In Color was accepted. I’m making a lace shawl: crescent-shaped, bottom up, with optional nupps — in two sizes no less! DIC’s new Wisp is super pretty — according to the Ravelry page for Wisp, they released this yarn in a different put-up as part of the 2012 yarn club. I for one am glad to have it become part of their line. The hand-painted colors just glow on the merino-silk blend.
My design will be in the “Brilliant” colorway:
This isn’t Wisp, of course — some other base. But I will show you WIP photos to prove it’s just as pretty on the lace-weight Wisp!
Once the pattern is complete and fully tested and tech edited, I’ll be hosting a knit-along on my Ravelry group. It won’t be a mystery this time — you’ll know what you’re getting into! — but I will provide support, cheerleading, and prizes to help motivate you. The full size of the design will use two skeins of Wisp, but the pattern will also provide directions for a scaled-down version that only needs one skein.
