Today I finally got round to finishing my Mandala for Yarndale.
There was no deliberation on the colours for this circle of goodness; living in a seaside town and I knew I wanted to use blues and greens to send a bit of the coast along to Skipton.
I am really looking forward to going to Yarndale again, everyone was so friendly and I am guessing after the success of last year there will be even more exhibitors this year. There was lots to see on the way to the show and so many like minded folk to talk to, I met a tutor from the design college and had chance to look at some of her designs, knitted evening dresses no less, absolutely amazing. There was so much wool to choose from I could have bought loads but having exercised a bit of self control I bought 2 lots of lovely yarn, some felting wool and a pattern.
If you haven’t seen it already you can see Lucy’s call to action on Attic24 . I am intrigued to see the end result of all the gorgeous colourful Mandalas.
And the next mandala I make I will definitely be using the Starflower Pattern from Zooty Owl, I just love all the detail and use of colour.
