Bubble Story

I just released life in a bubble few days ago and wanted to tell a bit more about the design.

Back in the winter, Colourmart yarns group on ravelry announced their very first call for designs for the e-book that will showcase their yarns. For anyone who is not familiar, ColourmartUK sells oiled high quality yarns, primarily cashmere at very very good prices (don't get too addicted now). They have other yarns too, but they are mostly known for their cashmeres which are designer remnants from brands like Botto Poala, Chanel, Burberry etc.... I had several ideas circulating in my head but this inspiration stood out - the bubble stitch mesmerized me the minute I saw it!

Off swatching and searching I went and got this

Ok, it's not an exact replica but the bubbly vibe is there! I love how this simple pattern showcases any yarn, solid, color repeat or variegated - they all look smashing in this delicate drop stitch mesh. And as always, it's reversible.

In the next few days I will be running a giveway of this pattern - 7 lucky winners will get it for free! Details will be posted here. Stay tuned!

Have fun knitting!
