With super special stuff from Knitterly Things and Primrose Yarn, a case of the Mondays is turned on its head! Seriously, this is a special day, my friends.
First, I have some Find Your Fade kits from Kelsey at Primrose Yarn. These 6 or 7 skein kits help those of us who might not have the time or interest in seeking out an artistic selection of colorways for this popular project. Kelsey has created 5 options for us so that we can get started immediately! The kits use her fingering weight merino singles, Adelaide, and it's super soft and glows with color. I have two seven-skein kits and three six-skein kits to give you a bit of flexibility on price and how you are executing the pattern.
For those who want to put your own Fade together, I'll have an epic selection of colors from Primrose in a few weeks.
Julia at Knitterly Things has started dyeing up a Bespeckled line of yarn and we are the first shop to share it. As someone who has worked with stripes for years, her ability to combine color in an artistic and inventive way is definitely put to great use in this new collection. You'll enjoy an array of speckles, splotches and waves of color that make each skein unique. If I weren't test knitting something right now, I'd have cast on last night while watching Victoria.
With some of these skeins, you really have to either click on the image to enlarge or see it in person to see the array of little tiny micro-speckles that adorn each skein. These things are so perfect I. Just. Can't. Even.
They are the kind of skeins that you could easily combine with a solid from Tosh Sock to make a two color shawl or project of some kind. They POP.
I hope this brings a bit of brightness to your Monday! It's sunny but cold here in NE Indiana again, so I could certainly use some wooly warmth in my life today!
