Bordeaux Chenille Wrap
We have a family wedding this weekend and our 5 year old son Drew is the ring bearer. I bought this dress, which has a beautiful paisley print in a deep wine color. I found this luxurious chenille yarn in the color Bordeaux, which sounds so romantic! I whipped up this quick wrap and happen to have glass beads to match. I strung a necklace and had beads left over for earrings. The rich chenille makes this outfit so regal, the deep jewel tone plus the lush texture of the yarn is absolutely fabulous! I've always favored deep jewel tones, like ruby red, emerald green and sapphire blue.
The wrap isn't actually done yet. This is turning out too long and I think I'd like a shorter one, (and I started it lenght wise) so I've got 3 days to decide what to do, possibly rip and re-do. I'm not worried, I'm good at ripping, I crochet quick, and we have a 3.5 hour car ride, so I'll have plenty of time, it's got to be perfect!
My Knotty Advice today: If yarn is your passion, don't deny yourself the finest.
