I have finished my LA Co Fair entries for this year’s competition.  I will be photographing and putting them here for you to see.  Here is the first one, The Golden Dreamcatcher.

I used my “Dreamcatcher” pattern, which is a free form style of knitting motifs and adding each different one as you go along.

I used five different yarns, some combined, some solo, to get the effect I wanted.  They were: 1) a gold ribbon with gray/brown edge yarn, “Luna” from Silk City Yarns, mixed with a metallic gold boucle with slubs of gray and rust for the inner circle; 2) the gold “Luna” with a skinny gold metallic for the Sunray section; 3) a brown wrapped in gold with “nuggets” from Universal Yarns called “Elite” for the rick-rack trim; and 4) a brown/gold composite yarn from Lucci called “Paris” along with the skinny gold metallic yarn for the bottom trim.

It probably looks like it should be in a Viking movie as it has the look of being a piece of armor, but I assure you it is only a top to be worn over a black turtleneck and pants.

This is one of my patterns for sale on my Etsy shop, so if you want to try it, you can get it there.
