"When I watched the film looking for a color inspiration, the 'Coeur de la Mer' sapphire and diamond necklace was perfect! It captured all the themes of romance, intrigue, and above all, the mystery of the ocean.
For extras - what better than some sketchbooks you can keep in your knitting bag to draw or chart your project inspirations? (I suppose you could sketch French prostitutes too, if that's your thing.) These Bon Voyage themed beauties fit the bill, and they're 100% recycled too."
I'm thinking this yarn is destined to become a shawl, like so many of my skeins will ultimately become...because, well, they just seem to PRETTY for my feet...to be hidden by shoes...I want the gorgeous color where everyone can see it!
And, like I said, I'm liking the peacock blue right now, and so, I chose it for a pair of felted slippers, the pattern for which I found through French Press Knits. I'm hoping to finish the last small pieces tonight and sew them up so that tomorrow..YIKES....I can felt them. Felting is not a technique I enjoy, so I really need to jump in and get to it before I talk myself out of it...it involves my washing machine, hot water and agitating the knitted pieces until they felt and shrink...not fun...but hopefully, if all goes well...they'll be really cool slippers!
