LEAF LIGHTS SPRING KIMONO IN JAMAICA
 
 
 
Looking for something loose, comfortable yet stunning to wear this
spring? How about the Leaf Lights kimono shown here on my
model/friend, Hannah Epstein? Set against a background of
tropical fruit at a roadside fruit stand in Port Antonio, Jamaica,
the mood is celebrating all things lush and vivid.

Leaf Lights shown here rear view overlooking the Rio Grande river, Port Antonio, Jamaica, at
Henry's Resort where I'll be offering a wellness retreat in February '11. In the mornings,
you can hear the river captains singing their way up stream.

Leaf Lights Unfurled
 
 
Leaf Lights is composed of a ripple stitch moving from dark to light as
sunlight chases shadows through the foliage. Make yours in cotton, silk,
wool—anything! Choose the colors you love and indulge in the
spirit of the tropics. Piece shown is knit primarily from two hues of
Twisted Sister's Voodoo silk/merino yarn mixed with plenty of stash yarns
including Skeins' (from Glossop, England), heavenly nobbly cotton which creates
a rich surface interest.
 
 
Leaf Lights is part of a three-design Leaf Lights Evocative Guide, 30 pages
that include FROND below plus the Blade scarf. This guide is also available as
part of the membership for the Inspired Knitters Club.

FROND WRAP
 
 
 
GO GREEN! Knit a leaf! Well, a frond, actually, in organic feather&fan lace. Worked tip to stem, the
modified lacy stitch creates this fun and gorgeous wrap, a perfect shoulder toss for chilly eves that
celebrates our natural world like no other. Play Jane waiting for Tarzan:

Oooh, that's a pretty wrappyscarfything! If the other patterns in that volume are as edible and luscious looking, then you've got a serious winner there!
