Sea and Space is the amazing new exclusive LYS Day 2020 color from Forbidden Fiber Co. Dyed on her Pride base, this fingering weight yarn shimmers with just a hint of stellina. Pride works up beautifully with understated sparkle. Perfect for special occasions or that super special twinkly toe sock, but not over the top for everyday wear.
Download of local designer Emily Stamets new Sullivan shawl pattern. Sullivan is an exclusive pattern to Yarning for You.
Kathryn D. Sullivan is a geologist and oceanographer, a former NASA astronaut, the first U.S. woman to do a space walk, and the first woman to descend to the Challenger Deep. She is the first human ever to visit both space and the deepest known part of Earth’s oceans.
This shawl is inspired by Kathy’s adventures to the extremes of human travel; it plays on the echoes between deep sea and deep space. You’ll begin with the moon, our most familiar celestial object and the force behind the movement of the oceans. From there, trails of eyelets radiate outward, drawing on the visual similarities between stars and bubbles. You’ll finish with a simple lace that can be interpreted as both the cloud around a rocket blast and the froth under a sea-diving vessel as it descends. The final few rows return you to the texture of the moon, this time in a wave formation - a reminder that all things are connected, no matter how far apart they seem.
