You know I can’t remember the last time we offered Rare Gems on the website. So here we are with a little over 100 of them so if you want them I recommend ordering them sooner than later.
So…I have been playing with some neon colors and we will be adding them real soon. We’ve already put a few up, Peepers and Coral Bells to name a couple!
So one of the wonderful things about my job as dyer of fibers is seeing all of the colorways on the different bases. So when you order a colorway on one of our bases we have not seen it on it’s a bit like a birthday present. One of you brave and creative souls ordered out new neon Coral Bells on SilkMo. And OMG we all lost it over this. Maggie was hooked and so we dyed some for her to design something crazy fun with!
Crazy right?!! I am not a Coral fan but this? Holy Moly. And seriously this picture does not do it justice. So very bright, like blindingly so.
I can’t wait to see what Maggie comes up with. I think we are going to put it with a fingering weight grey/green we are working on for Halloween!!
Our SilkMo is so wonderful. It’s soft and not itchy and is such a steal and 32.00 for almost 1600 yards. Crazy right?!!!
I’m gonna dye some in Peepers and see what I can come up with. Maybe we need a SilkMo design contest. Would you be game?
Okay so there are 2 wonderful MKALS that are coming up soonish both of which call for 3 skein color combo’s so of course we have come up with a few of our own! Thanks to those of you who requested we do this!
You can order these by colorway in any of our fingering-weight bases. I recommend Featherlight and Soft Rock and Socks that Rock Lightweight.
Another KAL that seems to have grabbed our attention is Marie Greene’s Beekeeper Cardigan 4 day knit a sweater challenge
