It's hard to believe that 6 months have already passed since the mailing of this year's Roaring 20's yarn club. Time really does have a way of flying by. Anne released the pattern today and I am taking pre-orders for the Kashmir Colorway ~ Water Study, which will start shipping right after Spa.
Anne Hanson, the designer of this lovely scarf,Isadora, writes this:
The wide lace scarves of the 20's were worn long and silky to accent the new slender figure and clothing of the decade, but probably came in handy, too, for those baring shoulders for the first time. This fine, silky rectangle features a shimmery damask that relies on changes in stitch direction for the play of shadows across it's surface.
This club has been completely designer driven. When the designer gives me the color and I see the pattern, I then set about doing some research on how that design and color speaks to me. In researching Isadora Duncan to find a name for this yarn color, I spent some time watching her dance videos. Anne had requested a pastel blue/green, the shades of beach glass, which was a popular color during that time as seen here.
As I watched some of her dances, one of them struck a chord. The Water Study Solo. So full of movement like the ebbs and tides of the ocean...a place dear to my heart. There is a lot of subtle movement in the yarn as well.
Isadora led the movement of modern dance that we still see today.
I had so much fun with this package and am now happy to be able to offer the pattern/yarn for everyone to enjoy. :-)
