I designed Lispenard with the luxurious Acadia Yarn from The Fibre Company. This yarn is right up my alley - soft, drapey, tweedy and available in a GORGEOUS range of colors. It easily took me an hour to choose which color to use. My Lispenard has seen almost constant wear since I finished it in early January and the Acadia has held up beautifully.
I named the pattern for Lispenard Street a street in my new neighborhood. The back entrance to Pearl Paint is on quiet Lispenard Street, allowing my girls and I to shop for paints, canvases and other art supplies without fighting the chaos on Canal Street. On a somewhat related note a favorite Saturday outing for Sofie & IJK is doing what they affectionately call the "Pearl Trifecta" - hitting all three pea(u)rl stores in one day - Pearl Paint, Pearl River Mart, Purl Soho. This is easily accomplished since they are all within walking distance of one another.
