{mood board} Party Favor

Celebrations are my favorite! Especially birthday celebrations. Every May, I bring you a free shawl pattern as a token of my appreciation and to celebrate my birthday.

This year I was inspired by confetti, streamers, and the bright colors that bring such joy to these events. I hope you enjoy your Party Favor!

A Happy Accident

Many months ago, Authoress was testing a completely different pattern for me. She excitedly shared some WIP pictures so we could ooooh and ahhhh over the gorgeous yarn choice. It took me until the next day to realize that the texture wasn't quite right. The stitch pattern was lovely but not what I had actually written.

My brain bees were BUZZING over emailing her about the overall pattern mistake. Not because I thought Authoress would be rude or resistant to correcting the project but because frogging can be THE WORST THING EVER. Who wants to be the bearer of bad news? Certainly not me!

She was gracious and kind about it and frogged without complaint. But the texture stuck with me and before I knew it, a new design took hold in my mind and The Great Mistake was born. It has been such a beautiful reminder that good things can come out of almost any situation, even those involving frogging.

{sunday inspiration} Mikado Yellow

In the depths of winter, on those days when mother nature teases me with sunshine, there are fleeting moments when I swear I can feel that hint of spring. I focus that longing for the earth to bloom again with warmth, and go searching for inspiration in color.

Mikado Yellow: bold warmth, with an edge of freshness. Not quite yellow, not quite orange, a tantalizing in-between.

I hope it inspires you too
