Day 2 of the #yarnlovechallenge is Close Up. I've chosen this detail of an upcoming design of mine because I think it does a good job illustrating what resonates with me design-wise. Simple, elegant lines with a little bit of texture or an understated lace accent, and a neat finish like this I-cord edge. The whole thing brought to life by a beautiful, evocative color. Now I'm curious: What detail do you respond to the most? What reels you in each time and makes you want to cast on immediately? Is it a seedy texture? Or a squishy expanse of garter stitch? A yarn's subtle variegation? A pop of color? An intricate lace pattern?
