What could be better than a bit of color and whimsy on a bright and shiny summer’s day!
I’m pretty smitten with this whole group of colorways but most especially these three! Octopus’s Garden, Pixie Dust & Unicorn Farts and Chintz & Giggles. They just make me happy.
About as happy as those hues make me feel, this trio of Plushy does so even more. Which is a little odd since I am not exactly a pink person.
From left to right we have Goodby Kitty, Baby, it’s cold out. and Cariblue.
…and then there is this trio of shaded solid goodness!!
Again…form left to right: Tempest, Bladderwrack on the Rocks and Jasper. I am so knitting a sweater with Plushy in Bladderwrack on the Rocks and maybe a lap blanky for when the Pacific Northwest wet and cold winter hits.
I can not sing the praises of this yarn loud enough! It takes the dye really well so the color is extraordinary. And the ply on this puppy is just snug enough to keep its elastic quality but not too tight to make it heavy. The stitch definition is simply AMAZING!! And it is just super cozy.And since it is worsted weight it is the perfect yarn for holiday present knitting.
Last week I mentioned our facebook group and how we were going to start our holiday knitting. Maggie is going to be your hostess with the most-ess and our first project is a hat in of course, Plushy. We contacted Alex Tinsley to see if she was interested in us using some of her hat patterns and she is. She is going to knit Fructose and is using Plushy in Smoke on the Water. Check out the facebook group page for details!
We are diligently working to get orders out! The week long power outage did set us back a little bit.
It is so beautiful out I am going to post this and go for a walk to enjoy the rest of this day.
I get to teach dyeing tomorrow so I am pretty excited!!
PS: I am aware that the picture of Pixie Dust and Unicorn Farts looks different that the instagram video. It was hard to get a good picture to day and I will try again tomorrow. I promise it is the same colorway. Cross my heart and hope to dye! ;0)
Have a lovely weekend!
