In my hair
Shifting and drifting
Hot metal and oil
The scented country air
from the album: Moving Pictures
New Pattern Release:
Sunlight on Chrome was inspired by one of my favorite songs, and has been nearly 2 years in the making!
I roughed-out the original idea for this pattern after watching Rush in Rio (amazing!!!) which sparked a renewal in my somewhat obsessive Rush fandom. Red Barchetta has always been my absolute favorite Rush song and so I let it be my inspiration for this piece.
To fully exemplify Red Barchetta, I knew the piece needed to be shiny, have loads of beads and just the right yarn--which did not necessarily need to be red, but absolutely had to be chrome-like! The rough-draft of this pattern sat patiently in my folder waiting for a yarn that would bring it to life--and along came Teresa Ruch Designs' gorgeous, hand-dyed tencel yarn. It was a perfect match!
