Random Yarns

It’s so liberating to explore fashion through trial and error. If I have something in mind that I feel is worth designing, I will make the attempt to execute my ideas, despite knowing there will be a great chance I will be disappointed! Hey, at least I tried! The exciting part about designing is the creative process; you really don’t know what to expect till the very last touch. I get such a rush anticipating on the final outcome...this I live for…hahaha!

A few months ago, I went to the yarn store and chose 6 different types of yarns. Without any clear idea of knowing what I wanted to make, I just started to throw different types of yarns in my basket. Literally, I was in and out of the store in 10 minutes. As soon as I started to knit, I felt unsure if my sweater would turn out nice or even wearable, but I just kept on going because I am not a quitter! Finally, I finished! Scroll down for a surprise…..jk

starting the front top area

this is my extremely oversized back pattern


Stockings from Wolford... the best place to buy stockings!


The stockings make my unusual sweater more acceptable.

I work too hard, I need to rest :)) haha
