Color Inspiration Thursday: Scarlett (and a Giveaway!)

Deborah Grisorio is the random winner of the skein of Sunna in Scarlett! Thanks, everyone, for playing along! I’ll be dyeing Scarlett on several different bases in the very near future, and loading them to the shop. Stay tuned!

Scarlett is one of the first colorways I created when I started dyeing repeatable colors, and it continues to be one of my favorites, as well as a perennial customer favorite.

It is truly the perfect red: clear, rich, vibrant, intense, and truly red: fire engine, sexy nail polish, stunning lipstick. It’s the killer red dress which draws every eye to the confident woman wearing it. It’s the splash of holly berries against bright white snow. Neither too orange nor too blue, not one bit muddy or subdued. It’s not subtle. It’s in-you-face RED.

And to celebrate it’s perfection, I’m giving away one glorious skein of the perfect red on the perfect yarn: Scarlett on Sunna, my fingering weight superwash merino / cashmere / silk blend yarn (also a huge customer favorite). This yarn, quite simply, glows.

My imagination runs wild with the potential this simple skein of yarn holds.

Scarlett on Sunna!

If you’d love to have this skein of yarn, post a comment on this blog post and tell me what you think you’d make with it. I’ll pick a random winner on Tuesday, July 26, 2016!

P.S.  I’ll be dyeing Scarlett on several bases in the very near future and loading it to my website … unfortunately this is a bit of tease, as I didn’t realized I had none at all available on the site!

  1. Wow! This is such a great color to chase away the gray of winter! I would knit Coco Knits’ Lulu and revel in the color every time I put it on!


  2. I’d most likely make a pair of fingerless mitts with it, but it would also make a great scarf – either alone or paired with a pretty gray. So it would be a tough choice!

  3. Perfect colour and luscious feel for an adorable little Cape for my darling strawberry blonde granddaughter Penny! It’s beautiful…job well done!

  4. A baby sweater for the new little granddaughter of a close friend. They are Vietnamese and red is a lucky color. ALSO MY favorite color!

  5. A cowl, definitely a very sexy cowl! Maybe Persimmon, the long version to wrap around your neck in the cold of Winter.

  6. What an amazing color! I could see it knitted up as a cowl or a shawlette with beads – perhaps the Age of Brass and Steam shawl. It would look stunning in that colorway!


  7. I would love to make a scarf out of this yarn. The Sunna is one of my favorites and I love this rich red color. It would make a lovely scarf.


  8. It’s so gorgeous I wouldn’t want to cover it up! I’d do a cowl or gloves so everyone could see how well it matched my winter gear.

  9. Why should only grown-up Scarletts have all the fun with Scarlett? I’d knit a Wee Liesl, and find a baby girl to enjoy it!

  10. This would look so stunning with a black wool coat. I would make mitts and a ear band to match. I imagine this with some traveling twisted stitches. Oh so gorgeous!

  11. I love the scarlet color, and the Sunna base!
    I am thinking Fucus Asparagoides from Hunter Hammersen’s Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet III!

  12. Great color! I have a black winter coat, and a bright red scarf knit with Scarlett Sunna would be beautiful and cozy this winter.
