Color Inspiration: Black Cherry

First, the winners of the random drawing from over the weekend are:  Mamma Kate for the mini set of Peacock, and Chris from Chicago for the mini set of Autumn in New York. Congratulations!


Black Cherry, a deep plum-cherry color, is another new-for-Fall colorway debuting at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival (and, of course, online when I get home).

It’s such a great color for Fall sweaters and accessories. And, being in my current everything-should-compliment-everything-mode (whenever possible, at least!), this colorway will go really well with Fog (soft light gray), Glacier (soft light gray-blue), Pink Sands (light pinky-gray), Scrimshaw (cream) and several others.

I’ll have it on a few bases at NYSW!

    I love this color! It would be beautiful with the greys you mentioned on a Montbretier, by Carol Feller.

    This Black Cherry is a lovely, warm Fall colorway. I’ve already started looking at patterns to knit with the Peacock mini set. Thank you again!

    I need a sweater in Glacier and Cherry. I am completely in love. Time to check Ravelry for some ideas.

    Are you bringing sweater quantities to NYSW? Is it wrong that I still haven’t used last years’ sweater quantity?


    • Jennifer says:

      Yes, I’ll absolutely have sweater quantities in all of these new colors (multiple sq’s in each, for the most part).

      And no, it’s not wrong. It’s percolating ;-D
