Adela

Adela

Adela is a lace scarf that I designed and entered into Elann.com’s Designer Contest for Winter 2012 — and it won!! I’m so excited!

You can see it on the community website for Elann by clicking the above link.

It was inspired by Gladys Mitchell’s character Adela Bradley. Here’s how I wrote about it on the Ravelry pattern page:

“Diana Rigg on PBS’s Mystery! introduces Gladys Mitchell’s 1920’s criminologist and amateur sleuth, Mrs. Adela Bradley, this way: “Over the course of some sixty-six mysteries, Adela Bradley married and divorced three husbands, was made a Dame of the British Empire, and a consultant to the British Home Office. She also developed prodigious abilities at pub darts, snooker, billiards, and knife throwing. One thing she cannot do is knit.”

So, for Adela — mondaine, cosmopolitan and woman of impeccable fashion sense — a unique and beautiful lace scarf to match her individuality!”

A new contest is afoot for Spring 2013 - go have a look and participate!
