Even though it is still incredibly hot outside, it is time to plan for fall. Some of the fabrics and yarns I ordered have already come in. I am continuing with black and charcoal gray as my neutrals, and adding lime green (of course).
The yarns are fingering weight Nature Spun (100% wool) by Brown Sheep Yarns, in Pepper (black) and Spring Green. The fabrics are from Banksville Designer Fabrics. On the top is a lime green double knit with a closely matching Ambiance lining. (I couldn’t capture the saturation of the knit – it doesn’t look washed out in real life.) The next fabric below is a dark gray wool/cashmere woven that will be perfect for pants. And then two more double knits – the houndstooth is a dark gray/light gray with a silvery metallic thread outlines, and the solid is a slightly heathery charcoal gray.
The colors work well with my Bright Winter color fan. I added the yellow yarn (Impasse Yellow – same yarn as the cones) after seeing the yellow/green strip against the stack of fabrics. I don’t know that it will ever play a major role, but it could work well as an accent.
More fabric will still be coming my way, including some black coating and lime green leather from Nancy Erickson. Now I just need to flesh out my outfit ideas and decide on the sewing order. I’ll be back with a plan.
See you soon!
