La Tempesta

 This design had no plan, no theme or color palette.  The yarn I used called to me as I was cruising online retailers looking for something new, natural, and luxurious to play with.  The colors that jumped into my cart screamed my name.  Rich jewel tones and earthy greens with a few neutral tones.  All colors I use quite often, but never all together.    


The Storm simply translated to Italian.  Dark, hectic, building in strength and intensity.  La Tempesta can be a story of so many things, while being a story of absolutely nothing at the same time.
