My friend Carole wanted some yarn to (finally) knit a Color Affection for herself. She said that she wanted colors that reminded her of the beach, when I asked if there were any colors in mind, and sent me the link to a photo in her Flickr stream.
Carole wrote about it, herself, today!
Custom work isn't always easy, but I think they turned out pretty good, if I may say. I will give a little credit to my husband for that! I may live in the midwest, but I'm no stranger to the ocean -- I've been surrounded by it in one form or another for the past 25 years! He grew up on Southern California beaches, we were married on the coast of Oregon, and he's painted the ocean untold times over the past 20+ years -- most of those years in an at-home studio -- and his business is called Oceans and Dreams!
I can't wait to see Carole's finished shawl!!
