I’m a 3/4 length sleeve, slash neck sweater. Dad is a silver-haired Garnstudio Drops Cotton Viscose, and Mom is Belle by Rowan. I am named after Mom. By just looking at me you would think I am a difficult person to live with, but if you look closely you’ll see I’m basically just 4 panels. Two of my panels are intricate lace, and my sides and sleeves are worked as one. I look difficult, but I’m really not. Saying that, you have to keep your wits about you because I can be a bit splitty – I get that from my Dad. On the plus side I also got my slight sparkle from Dad. I will only shine in the right light though, and only to those who care to look closely.
I like showing off with friends, especially at the craft mornings where my design is really appreciated. I don’t like sharp edges or rough surfaces – it brings out my splitty side. When I’m wet I become rigid and need a firm hand to get me to open up again. If you have a firm, yet gentle hand, I will reward you with a beautiful open lace pattern and be the perfect length to flatter your hips.
I sometimes think I need to duplicate myself because I’m just so fabulous. If there were two of me, I’ll improve on myself by changing my splitty nature and dyeing my silver hair blue so that I will look good with denim. I’m hoping somewhere in my gene pool there is more cotton and less viscose. I may not have the same sheen, but I’ll make up for it by being much softer and more relaxed.
If you’re looking for a classic companion with a lacy edge, want to get close enough so that you can appreciate my sheen, and are willing to stick around for the softer me, I’d love to hear from you.
