Looking around this week at patterns recently published in Q yarns, we came across three in color Honey. Tiz the season? This texturey scarf in Osprey/Honey, Pompom Quarterly’s cover project for upcoming issue #6, makes me long for my couch and needles. I’m not really in a hurry to see the end of summer, BUT. There’s something about wooly textures that draw me, no matter what time of year. This long (long, long) scarf is a design from Wencke Lucas. Love the juxtaposition of the backdrop’s fuschia pinks and purples with Honey’s warm, September sunniness.
Just up the coast lives designer Elizabeth Smith who used Honey in Lark for another texture-y piece, her Pineland vest. Pretty and imminently practical in our world up here. Note the interesting use of garter and a faggot stitch variation on a simple silhouette. I love this kind of piece.
Love the styling with strong-turquoise jeans (and skateboard). The body section is striped and worked in a chevron stitch to create a zigzag pattern, thicker stripes tapering to thin. This one’s in Chickadee.
