For the snail blanket, I didn't yet have a solid plan formulated when I saw a call for submissions from Dream in Color Yarn. They were seeking baby sweater/blanket combos but were willing to consider just blankets or just sweaters. I've worked with DIC Smooshy before and liked it a whole lot, but I'd never worked with the yarns they were hoping to highlight (Everlasting DK and Smooshy with Cashmere). I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to get my hands on some!
So I looked through the colors, decided their yarn could really soar in this snail pattern, and I put together a proposal:
|Despite poor rendering of the colors here, this one page proposal told the story ... |
and gives you a preview of the design, too!
Next up? Their response...
