May Subscriber Inspiration Colorways!

This month’s colorways are based on a photo of a tile newsletter subscriber Cindy received, which is a beautiful mix of colors. It immediately fueled my imagination on all the different colorways I could create:

I’m so happy with how this month’s colorways turned out, because I think I really nailed those tile colors :-D. All four of them work well together for colorwork, and of course individually.

Bright magenta/purple is “Create Your Self,” Soft Gray with a tinge of pale pink here and there is “Infinite Possibilities,” rich royal blue is “You Only Live Once,” and a pretty speckle of pinks, blues, grays along with some of the yellows and oranges in the tile is “Imagine It Real.”

All four are available for pre-order from now through May 26, or while supplies last. All orders will ship out by no later than the week of June 24, 2019.

You have your choice of two bases this month: Birte, DK weight superwash Merino, Cashmere, and Silk, and Verdande, Worsted weight of the same blend. Be sure to choose the correct base from the drop-down menu on each product page.

May Lucky Pot Shop Update!

The May Lucky Pot Shop Update is live! Lucky Pots are one-of-a-kind, never to be reproduced colors. Me getting spontaneous with the dyepots; nothing is written down and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

This is an update of Lucky Pots dyed on Aurora, my single-ply fingering weight superwash Merino base. It’s a super yarn, and has quickly become a favorite for many. 400 yards per 3.5 ounce / 100g skein, it’s a dream to knit and creates a really wonderful, soft fabric.

Springtime colors

It’s a great yarn for shawls and scarves, hats and other accessories, and sweaters. Check out the Ravelry Project Page to see what others have knit with this lovely yarn. Patterns that would work well in Aurora include Tegna, Marettimo, So Faded, Yoga Shawl, Spector, Stormy Sky Shawl, Wildheart, Breathing Space, Lilli Pilli, and Plein Soleil, but there are SO many more!

Earthy colors

 

You can see all the colors on the Special Shop Update page. There are sweater quantities of many colors, and also lots of potential color combinations. If you see something you like, I’d recommend ordering quickly to get the best selection, and to ensure there is enough of the color you want. All yarns are ready to ship!
