New Colors, Special Edition Base, and Surprises, Oh My!
I have so much to say about everything going on this weekend that I thought it best to sit down and write a blog post instead of taking it to Facebook on multiple long winded posts! So, hang tight folks, this is going to be a long one...
First up, I have new colors! I am so excited about each and every shade, as you might have noticed if you follow me on social media! Something about this time of year makes me really want semi solids, so it is officially my habit to make a collection in December and this year is no exception.
This years collection was inspired by my favorite colorway, Silver Lining Tweed. For me SLT is everything: classy,fun, and totally wearable. I wanted to make a collection of solid colors that could be all that, and more. I decided to take all the colors that make up the rainbow in Silver Lining Tweed, punch them up and over dye them in silver grey. The results, I dare say, speak for themselves! They are so saturated and flattering. I am sure everyone will be able to find a favorite, and if you can't pick, get a set of them all! I was only able to get it dyed on Everything Fingering so far, but I will have it available on Signature Sock, and Everyday Lite next week. It will be available on DK as soo as soon as we get our shipment from the mill!
Targhee is the breed of sheep, which is a cross of Lincoln, Corriedale and Rambouillet. This makes Targhee fiber soft, matte, bouncy and completely luscious. Targhee is perfect for next to skin, while still being durable enough for everyday wear. This yarn would be amazing for sweaters, blankets, hats, cowls, mittens and anything else you could imagine! I am calling this base "Seasonal" and it will be available in generous 275 yard, 4 oz skeins. This yarn is NOT a superwash yarn and will felt. You will need to handwash your garments made in this yarn.
While supplies last, Seasonal will be available in the Silver Lining Rainbow color collection. You will notice the colors take a bit differently on the pure wool base verses the superwash, but I think they are just as amazing on this base. I also added Eclipse to the collection, because it's Eclipse and it's stunning, but this version does not have the speckles and is a semi solid as well.
I'll have swatches in all the colors soon, but for now check out how it knit up in Sage! I cast on a swatch for a Daelyn Pullover by Isabelle Kraemer which I have been wanting to knit for ages!
Due to the limited nature of this base we will be unable to offer it for wholesale.
And there you have it, new colors, new yarns, and surprises for everyone! I'll be posting about our adventure and my new sweater WIP on Facebook and Instagram, and of course I will be available via email while we are away.

Now, I'm off to pack!
