Mind the Gap Again
I had so much fun making the first version of "Mind the Gap" I knew I would revisit it. What I did not expect was to revisit it so soon!
I had the fortunate to be introduced to the Safronie yarn line. I specifically feel in love with her fingering weight yarn called "Lovely." And yes, Lovely is the perfect name for it. A great bled of ultrafine superwash merino and mulberry silk, it is a dream to work with. Of course I bought a skein - or two.
Imaging my surprise when, about a week later, I ran into her again at a local yarn shop. She was there hosting a trunk show. We struck up a conversation and, before I knew it, she had shoved two lovely skeins of yarn into my arms and said, "design something amazing with it." The two skeins are called "All Magic Comes at a Price" and "Time Lord." Of course being a huge fan of the shows that inspired their names, I was hooked.
I knew I wanted to create something that would show off the drape of the yarn, yet still pick up on the modern feel of the colors. I also wanted to play with the contrast of light and dark. As I was working on the original version of Mind the Gap, I knew this would be a possibility. I'm thrilled that it turned out as I had envisioned.
Also, if you happen to be a fan of the Fibonacci Sequence, then you will enjoy this pattern as it was the driver behind the row repeats.
Here are some more pics for your viewing enjoyment.
The pattern is available in all the usual spots - this site, Etsy, and Ravelry.
