Some New Yarn and a Designer’s Challenge

I got new yarn today! An odd triangular package arrived from Eat.Sleep.Knit with some lace blocking wires and a size 3 24″ circular needle. Most importantly, it contained two skeins of Dream in Color Baby in the colorways Crying Dove and Lipstick Lava.

I’m going to be using these two yarns together in a new design I’m working on for the Designer’s Challenge. This is a group on Ravelry that organizes challenges for designers each month based on a certain theme. Usually there’s a certain object, technique, and theme that must be apparent in the design, but after that each designer’s imagination can run wild! This time the challenge is a “Super Challenge” – 2 months long. The object is a top, the theme is origami, and the technique is stripes. I’m looking forward to posting more about my inspiration, my ideas, and my swatching as the challenge progresses.
