I bought this lovely cashmere hooded sweater in a nice neutral off white. It will go with everything! Yes, it does go with everything and is wonderfully warm in the cool air conditioning but it is also an ever so boring neutral off white.
My lovely but boring sweater was an empty cashmere canvas in which to add my own crochet design work. Mixing and matching a couple of crochet edging designs I had along with a coordinating off white #20 sized lace thread, beige satin ribbon, and a sweet variegated yarn of pinks, greens, and golds this addition adds a bit of me to a simple manufactured sweater.
The thin variegated yarn is in the same color spectrum as many of my other clothes and am happy that my hand crocheted addition of lace edging still goes with just about everything I already own
Spring cotton hanging scroll: Design inspiration to completion.
From a photo I took last spring of Cherry Trees in a park across the street…
to a sketch using #2 and colored pencils…
to the final crochet and embroidery design created on cotton:
Each sakura is individually hand crocheted and then embroidered detail is added to the cotton. Along with Summer, Fall and a unique Winter scroll I am looking forward to a gallery showing in Tokyo this fall. Love how the hand embroidered accents really make this design pop!
