Mothers of the World Collection

Before I start telling you about my Mothers of the World Collection, I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day. I wish you lots of flowers, hugs, and kisses.
I got lots of hugs and kisses this morning, and my husband got me a special gift, a vintage mounted Singer Sewing machine. He has to go pick it up, and I can't wait to find a special place for it in the house, probably in my design studio.

My Mothers of the World Collection is done. I loved the colorways so much that I had to show everyone in the house each and every skein. What I love about them is their harmonious nature. I was so inspired by the theme of the universality of motherhood, that it transpired in the colorways themselves. Each colorway is unique, but at the core of each one is one identical color. That identical color disappears but remains at the core of the soul of each colorway.

This picture above is a collage of some of this weeks' colorways, and I hope that you enjoy them.

I am confused with the Chevron cat bed pattern. The pattern says all stitckes are garter stitch, when I do it looks like Stockinette. Then it says to use purl after each chevron pattern.
