Amsterdam Annis



Using the wool I bought in Amsterdam in yellow to remind me of our holiday there. I tried to get wool made in Holland, but there wasn’t any. So I ended up with this yellow from Peru.

The lace work will remind me of Rembrandt’s paintings, and the lace work painted in portrait work.

The yellow reminds me of the Vermeer and Van Gogh’s paintings I got to see in real life, not just out of art text books.

The yellow is not as vibrant as I would have lliked, but the yarn store didn’t have much of a selection in yellow..this muted yellow will probably suit me better anyway!

Pattern: Annis by Susanna IC
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Lace Solids
