One of the requests I'm happy to oblige this year is dyeing a small batch of the Poste Yarn Halloween colors early so some of you can get a head start on knitting your Halloween socks. I have the three new spooky striping Poste Yarn colors for you, plus we dyed a fresh batch of the popular Fright Night (black and orange striping).
Greenwich Village Parade is named for the children's Halloween parade in, you guessed it, Greenwich Village. It's a color that is inspired by chocolate candy corn, so definitely fun for kids and adults alike. It stripes in approx 7 row strips of chocolate brown, orange and yellow.
Poenari Castle is a color inspired by the castle ruins in Romania. Is a popular combination of black, charcoal and fluorescent green-tinged-yellow- striping in 7 rows each. This is a color combination I've been seeing everywhere for both girls and boys clothes. In fact, I'm snagging one for myself because it coordinates with James' snowsuit. I'm thinking a hat and gloves.
We also have a less bright, but equally spooky option in Salem. Salem, named for the well-known Massachusetts town, is a stripe of black, lavender and lime. This one also stripes in approximately 7-row stripes.
If you didn't catch this one last year, I also have for you Fright Night, named for the downtown festivities in my own hometown of Fort Wayne. It's a simple 10-row each stripe of black and orange. A classic combo.
Here's Sedona Sunset, the striping color I made my Halloween socks in last year. It's a 7 row stripe of wine, purple and orange. I'm looking forward to getting some good use out of my socks this season!
If you see these Halloween colors disappear from the website, just check back every few days. We'll continue dyeing small batches throughout September and early October. Each skein take a lot of hands on time to wind, tie, dye, dry, skein, and tag, so it's a slow and deliberate process.
We've also been dyeing up small batches of some of the highlighter and sports team colors at special requests. Grab 'em now if you've been waiting, as it will be 2014 before these come back. We have a busy dye schedule planned already for the rest of 2013!
