January N Club Yarn: Tesserae

I'm so happy to share my collaboration with Laura Nelkin: Tesserae! This is the January shipment for her fantastic N Club, and will be exclusive to the club for one year. 

I've worked with Laura before, and so I knew she was going to push me in new directions. She had some solid ideas of what she wanted: an earthy colour palette and a concept for a "poncho yarn" with lots of colours near the top, drawing attention to the face, and a more subtle body. (Or as I came to think of it, a stripey "pon" and a gradient "cho".)

Laura even did all the math for me, so really my main job was just putting the colours where she told me to. The results are so lovely and different from anything I've ever done before. 

Plus, because designing a poncho wasn't enough for her, Laura wrote up a pattern for a shawl too. So, here it is in all its glory: the Flowsaic shawl and poncho
