If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I know you’ve already heard that I was featured in the Indie KnitCrate this month. But I wanted to write about it here because of the TWO new colorways I developed and the new base I used for the project!
First I want to talk about the base. I’m calling it Passport DK. It’s the first in a new line of yarns I will be offering in limited quantities as I find them via various sources outside of my normal wholesale supply. So in a sense, I’m “traveling” a bit. Trying new things from new places. It will be a fun adventure, and you’ll never know what new bases I’ll have! Depending on the demand for the bases, I may be able to include them in my wholesale program as limited runs. I’ll figure that out when I get there.
Okay, now for the colorways. First is Electroberry, and it’s my favorite. I took a true, vibrant blue and glazed it with pink to create lovely purple hues. The other new colorway is Pink Lemonade, a happy color that makes my mouth water because I love a cold glass of sweet, tart pink lemonade on a hot summer day. The other two colorways in the KnitCrate palette are Pumpkin Farm and Canary. Those four together sure do make a wonderful summery palette, don’t they?
The designer, Xandy Peters, used them so well in her designs. I hope to work with her again sometime!
The new colorways are already in my colorway gallery and part of my regular lineup for custom dyes and wholesale orders! I have a small inventory of Passport DK available, so drop me a line if you’d like some dyed up in any of my colorways! <3
