Cathedral is a delicate architectural wrap worked in two identical pieces that are grafted (joined) in the middle. When designing this piece, I wanted to experiment with Japanese stitch patterns, so I made the gorgeous lace transition into very graphic columns of twisted stitches.
For this project I collaborated with Lorna’s Laces to create the perfect color. They have a special project called Color Commentary (launched in 2007) and it’s their way of working alongside designers and other personalities in the industry to create their perfect color.
They named the color I used Joji’s Cathedral (which is kind of embarrassing for me to say). It is a beautiful gray with purple undertones and delicate black speckles; it will be dyed in all their bases.
The yarn is being shipped to all Lorna’s Laces’ retailers and you will be able to find it in various shops.
