With the debut of Mary Annarella’s new pattern, I Am Groot: Cardigan of the Galaxy, yesterday, it seemed more than fitting to post about the inspiration for the colorway.
Mary wanted a color reminiscent of the varying tan and brown shades of tree bark, but not too variegated or contrasty since her design includes cables. I went with the winter shades of the woods; the trees always seem more subtle and muted than other seasons. I don’t think the bark actually changes, but without being surrounded by the colors of Spring, Summer, and Fall, the trees definitely seem quieter, more subdued.
She loved the colorway, and I love her design!
Mary’s put the pattern up on Ravelry at 30% off until December 17, 2017! And, as noted yesterday, there’s lots of Zalti available in my shop, as well as a dyed-to-order option for If a Tree Falls, and a special order option for any other color not currently in stock.
