Another sneak peek of a new colorway for Fall: Retro, debuting at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival, and online thereafter.
I just love this acidy, intense yellow-green. This color came up recently in my Pinterest feed, and I was so hooked by it I knew I had to get it on some yarn right away.
It’s one of those great colors that’s a neutral-not-neutral. It goes with so many other colors. It’s one of those colors I think a lot of people don’t think they can wear. But mixed with other colors? A fabulous pop of color that really works.
It’s awesome with cooler colors:
And equally fantastic with warmer, earthier tones:
Playing with all these colors, I’m envisioning an icelandic-style yoked sweater, perhaps with the body knit in Muscaris, and the yoke pattern in Retro, Glass Bottom Boat, and Fog. Or, Vendange for the body, with Retro, Burnt Caramel, and Au Naturel (undyed, natural soft white). Or, how about the body of a sweater in Retro, with a yoke knit in Scarlett, Glass Bottom Boat, and Cyclone?
Or, a striped shawl in Retro and Graphite (or The Witching Hour, an even darker charcoal, for even more pop), or Retro and Glass Bottom Boat … or Retro and Muscaris. Seriously, endless possibilities.
There’s definitely some sort of colorwork project with this color in my future 🙂
