LtR: Wings of the Night; Sunk in the Thought; Seam of Memories It's hard not to be inspired by favorite songs, movies, or literature. The above three colorways were inspired by X Japan's Jade.

This particular base could have turned out to be... Read more →

A lot of the work cannot be seen yet, but I have total faith that the yarn above will work up beautifully in the two designs Stariel has in mind for them. For those interested, the darker green is on a 75/25 blend of Superwash Merino and Nylon; the lighter green is on a 80/10/10 blend of Superwash Merino, Cashmere, and Nylon. Both are soft, hardy,...
