My jaw dropped when I saw all the divine photos designer Shireen Nadir posted on her blog, TheBlueBrick of my design Aine photographed not only in Rome with a magnificent backdrop but also on the cruise ship going there. Aine is part of the SweetGeorgia Yarns Fall Collection and so is Siesta – a clever cowl with a triangular shape at the front – designed by Shireen. Above a photo of Shireen taken at the Ponte Sant’Angelo with the Castel Sant’Angelo in the background. I was gobsmacked to read that: “On our honeymoon, Aine was with me every evening on the ship 🙂 I am completely in love with this cowl, the texture is out of this world! Linda Marveng, the designer, is a genius”.
Shireen’s Honeymoon Aine is made in “Sweet Georgia’s Merino Silk Aran (discontinued) in the colour way ‘Goldmine’. I’ve been hoarding it forever and this was just the perfect project for such a luxury yarn”. Let it be mentioned that while Shireen was knitting her husband was sketching, so they were both engrossed in their hobbies in the evenings. Yes, one of the knitters did comment upon it. Do join my Ravelry group unless you have done so already, we do have a lot of laughs, and we all do knit a lot, see www.ravelry.com/groups/linda-marveng.
Here is another of Shireen’s photos I could not stop admiring. I love how she has captured the texture so well! Thank you so much, Shireen!
