Choosing colours: 

This scene in The Danish Girl made me gasp. I found a screen shot of it and made note to use it for a colour story then I found myself in Stockholm a few weeks later where I snapped this photo & the idea was sealed.

The combo is bang on trend for FW '16 but what colours will you choose for your Adelaide & Spadina?

Look for your own inspiration source for your combo. I love brightly coloured street art walls (had you guessed?) I'd love to hear where you find the inspiration for your choices- so please drop me a line or post on this Ravelry Forum page.


                                                                     Here's a black & white shot to help you visualize.

This asymmetric striped V- neck cardigan features a dropped stitch & embroidery detail on the Right Front, Back & Left Sleeve. Each piece is worked in a different stripe sequence to make it fun to knit.

My love for asymmetry design is a road I have been down many times. The non-identical sleeves are a nod to Camper shoes “Twins” collection where each shoe in a pair is slightly different to its partner.

Experimenting with new ideas makes me curious about what is ‘round the next corner. So the “embroidery” technique used here is a new variation of an idea I have been developing for a while - knitters who have tried it say that it’s simple to work. The pattern includes a photo tutorial to make it super easy. I love the way that when placed in colour block stripes it adds texture along with the simple stripes.

The colour story comes from a different street - a wonderful scene in the movie “The Danish Girl”, where the chalky ochre of the buildings became a stunning backdrop for Lilli’s lace collared deep blue dress.

Take a trip to Adelaide and Spadina, where ideas meet and the fun begins!

​My design ideas always take twists and turns in many directions, and sometimes they intersect. Welcome to the junction of Adelaide and Spadina!
