Pink Breeze

I searched through my stash for yarn that would be the perfect compliment to the Tempting II. No dice. So, I went shopping. I know, such a chore. I found at my LYS a yarn called Breeze by Heirloom in Australia. It is 30% wool, 69.6% cotton and 0.4% lycra. It is soft and a bit springy. It will be very forgiving on a pattern that is supposed to be clingy. I mini-swatched and depending on how much I stretch the swatch, I get smaller than, right on and larger than gauge. Works for me!

I am not entirely sure that a buckle is appropriate for pink. I may use a button or 2 or make a small bow.

Why not a buckle with pink? Kinda soft and sassy at the same time. That yarn is FABulous and should do well with this pattern.

I think button(s), bows, OR a buckle would be really cute. Perhaps a mother of pearl buckle could be found - would look very sassy and soft, like mossmama said, as well as sort of retro, I think. Nice yarn! Whatever you do on your Tempting II will be gorgeous!
