I am pleased to introduce April's Color of the Month, Lincoln Street. This months yarn was inspired by the street that my studio is on, a street that I stroll most morning's before starting my day of work. A few weeks ago, before "social distancing" and "shelter in place" were even a part of my vocabulary, I took a photo on the street that really stuck with me. It was a granite wall with bits of moss and patina that were so subtle, and so beautiful. The dye recipe came to my head almost immediately and I knew it would be a perfect color of the month.
This colorway starts with a soft layer of silver grey and then is heavily speckled on both sides with ecru, aqua blue, bronze and a splash of coral. Lincoln Street will work beautifully with my newest colorways Lemongrass, Oxidize, and Blood Orange. It would also look amazing with Sugar Maple, Sugar Cookie, Beauchamp, Diadem, Eclipse, or Divine Feminine.
It is currently available on Spontaneous Sock Yarn in DK and Fingering weight and there are a few skeins of Plush Single available...I accidentally forgot to order more last week so I'll set up a pre-order listing and dye up those orders in a couple of days when my mill shipment gets here! If you have questions about that, just let me know. I will also have the colorway available on Everyday Worsted and Plush Bulky by tomorrow afternoon because why not!? Stay tuned on Instagram and Facebook for that announcement.
Now that our lives have gotten so needfully small, I hope that this colorway will serve as a reminder to appreciate all the little bits of beauty that are always around us, if we only take the time to notice them. <3
I hope you and your families are well. Happy Making!
