...have been released!
As an exciting joint venture with The Net Loft, our local yarn shop, I have been dyeing up a storm this past month. This past Saturday we had our Yarn Release Party and set my four new colorways out on the town.
Meet "Forest Floor Waiting For Snow"
"Raven in A Rainstorm"
And lastly, " Octopus In Eccles"
The idea is great yarn bases hand painted to create locally inspired colorways. I dyed these four colorways on several different yarns bases: 12ply, 8 ply, 4ply mohair, 3 ply merino, boucle, cashmere/merino sock yarn and fun 2 toned bulky base perfect for hats.
We'll keep the colors coming, I've got a few ideas brewing and I'm ready to start experimenting with some new color combinations in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, check out this beautiful shawl Mae Vansant knitted for our display. I was lucky enough to wear it all day for both the yarn party and the Berry Festival later that evening! It was knit from the 3 ply merino in the "Raven in a Rainstorm" colorway.
And of course I must thank Dotty, the owner and creative mastermind behind The Net Loft. She spurred this process into motion and helped out so much along the way. She set up a lovely display to tempt the yarnophiles out there and knit up a great display hat in "Collecting Cranberries" from the newest edition of "Knits" from Interweave Press.
The best part was seeing people get excited about a certain skein that they just had to have. I don't know if engendering covetousness is a worthwhile pursuit but it feels great to see people love something that you created.
I can't wait to see more knitted projects popping up around town and maybe even from afar as people send skeins as gifts. These yarns are only available at The Net Loft, http://thenetloft.blogspot.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Net-Loft/243271355445. So if you happen to be in Cordova, stop in or else give us a call and we can tuck s0me in the mail for you.
