    Dried Lavender: bring on Spring!

    Giulia about Dried Lavender:

    "With this design I was inspired by Spring vibes and flower colours. I wanted to play with colours and simple stitches (drop stitches and eyelet lace).

    In summer I like to see how all the different flowers are mixed together in a field and I like to keep with me some memory of the long days spent outside. So, I often make little sachets of dried lavender, I think it’s my favourite flower.

    With this shawl I wanted to make something not too difficult to make, but with some fun while knitting it. I wanted something for Spring and all those days where the sun is out, but the air is still a bit cold. 

    During the hot months of the year, I still like to wear a shawl, but I like to use yarn made of cotton, linen or bamboo. So Eco-Fusion was the perfect plant-based alternative yarn: amazing colours and a great mix of cotton and bamboo. The yarn is lovely to knit with and the final result with the two fibres combined is great. In my design I was thinking about fields of flowers, but using different tones and more dark colours, you will also have something perfect for Autumn."
