In the meantime, as part of my Ravellenic team events, I have completed another Forged Joy (the motifs for which I wrote about in my most recent previous blog post) - still in Neighborhood Fiber Co's Capital Luxury Lace (same base as my original sample) but in this awesome Belair colorway. Even with my less-than-perfect cell phone photos, the color just jumps out at you and wants to make friends. It's a happy color, no? To the right is a closer look at the edging detail, including the beads at each point (some of which do seem to be shining in the photo, I'm happy to report). This version of Forged Joy is scheduled to make its debut at Stitches West this weekend, so if any of you out there plan to attend, definitely stop by Karida's booth and check it out (along with all that most excellently dyed fiber she's brought with her).
In the meantime, I'm going to attempt to get one more project completed for Ravellenics - wish me luck. Now I hope everyone will brave the Internet elements and head on over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder and see how everyone else is winding down from the Olympics.
