The design began when I received this beautiful yarn-

I tend to find the most inspiration for designs from the yarn itself. After much swatching and then sending a few design ideas over, this was cable pattern that I used in my design.

The center cable reminds me of twisting ivy that climbs along the brick wall next to my house.

Image

The outer cables are reminiscent of the tops of the andromeda plant in my backyard.

The yarn is such a delight to knit with that my progress on this design has moved quickly! Here are some in progress shots-
