June’s special colorways are now live! This month’s colorways are inspired by a photograph sent by Kate G.
Kate said this about her photograph: “I took this photo in April when we spent a week in Ogden, Utah for work training for my husband. We were at the Ogden Botanical Garden one evening having a picnic and this bright orange flower hidden among the woody shrub caught my eye. It was easily missed and such a neat find!”
Kate wins a free skein of yarn in her own special colorway! Congratulations, Kate! If you’d like to play along, all you need to do is subscribe to my newsletter (link up top on the right side), and then email me your photos every month. I choose one each month to create several special colorways. This is the third Subscriber Inspiration I’ve done (MDSW messed with me too much so I sadly missed doing this in April and May). Past inspirations were a chicken and a rainbow photo, so you can tell inspiration can come from just about anything.
I love all three of these colorways, individually and together. What a great project they’d make.
Botanical is the main colorway. It’s a speckled blend of grays, soft browns, greens, yellow, and oranges on a soft gray base color. Pretty much all the colors in the photograph:
Little Flower is the bright, happy yellow-orange complimentary colorway, based on that pretty little flower:
And Leafy is the rich, nearly iridescent green complimentary colorway:
All three colors are available on the following bases:
Aurora: fingering weight 100% superwash Merino single ply, 400 yards per 100g skein.
Philomena: fingering weight 100% superwash Merino 4-ply, 438 yards per 100g skein.
Sunna: fingering weight 75% superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% silk 3 ply, 356 yards per 115g skein.
Andromeda: DK weight 10)% superwash Merino single ply, 240 yards per 100g skein.
Verdande: worsted weight 75% superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk 4-ply, 220 yards per 115g skein.
Please note that each base has its own listing for each color (because I haven’t figured out how to add variations to a listing on Shopify, when the variations have different prices).
You can find them all on this page. Listings will be open from June 19 – 30, 2018. Then they’ll close and I’ll get to work. All orders will ship between July 15 – 25, 2018.
Hope you love them as much as I do!
