A step before spring

Good and gray morning…

To put a bit of light to this greyish day I’ll show you the palette suggested by Pantone for next Spring-Summer season..

You can download the .pdf file on their site http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20694&ca=4

Here a resume of the colors…

1. Amparo Blue ( a bit brighter than navy blue)

2. Turquoise (very summer and lovely for the beach)

3. Violet (in a pale version, super chic)

4. Aurora ( a yellow slightly green)

5.Fusion Coral (i think this is goign to be my favorite)

6. Tomato Purée (they suggest to combine it with turquoise to get a retro look and I agree and love the combination!)

7.Pink Champagne (i’ve been using it in my collections and it’s very well accepted)

8. Tuscany ( combined with violet…super cool)

9. Dried herb (one of the neutrals I’ve been also using so far)

10. Eucalyptus (a gray with a touch of green, the other neutral to be worn when we have got enough sun to be proud of our tanned skin:))

So, what do you think about it? Comment and tell me which one do you prefer!!

And just to get a fresh air on this winter… I have made this clutch bag in wild silk (very rusty indeed) mixed with acrylic in the same palette and with little touches of primary colors (that came in the yarn) and until this moment I didn’t have any idea of where to put it…but I think in this bag is perfect and looks great!

A blue sky shawl

I have to say that the project I was knitting with my circular needles was not what I expected to be… so, once I finished it, I decided to take it apart and start a new one with the same fiber.

It is incredible how something that take hours to build can be destroyed in seconds.. very metaphorical but true.

So, I thought in a poncho again, but then I imagined how this piece would be as a shawl, in a “décontracté” style for the nights of summer, when after sunbathe we need to cover our shoulder with something light and soft… and this was the result.

Second version

It’s been a long time not publishing anything for one of my creations so it’s time to upgrade! and it will be more this week!

This time I’ve made a second version of my romantic “springy” shawl in pure cotton and pastel colors … I love seeing the variations of the models without repeating the colors … what would be the next?

Waiting for the sun…

As I make several projects at the same time, I try to share my energy and if I’m doing something that requires all my attention, the other one it might be something relaxed… 

Meanwhile I was working in my handwoven scarf, I decided to make a poncho, very fun in colours and in the process. It’s simply knitted but all the fun is in colours combinations…

The material I used was pure cotton in a pale green and I combined it with lilac ribbon and a crazy and very colorful yarn, that goes really nice with the two others…

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
