“I dream my knitting, and I knit my dream.”
Vincent van Gogh has been an inspiration to many, including myself, but how would you interpret those gorgeous paintings into yarn? Come along with me on this journey to find out! From his earliest paintings of the common folk to the little yellow house to the ever famous “Starry Night,” this year is sure to be an adventure in painting!
Each month of 2023, I will be creating a yarn colorway inspired by one of van Gogh’s works, starting with his earliest and ending with his last. Each month’s colorway will come with a fun fact card that is all about the work in question and/or his life at that time.
$45 gets you a skein of yarn, the fun fact card, a monthly stitch marker and one to two other items that are van Gogh related. Some items may be knitting/crochet tools, others may just be fun items. Subscribers will also receive a discount on other items from my shop, including the option to order more of each monthly color at a discount.
Subscription members will get their choice of yarn base each month and an email will be sent to ask what you’d prefer. If you do not reply, the default base is my “light” base – 100% SW Merino, fingering, 400yds. Right now, other options are DK (100% SW Merino) and sock (Merino/nylon blend).
Not sure if you want to subscribe? I will usually have a preorder each month for the skein only (no items included).
All packages will ship the last week of the month, to ensure that I have plenty of time to account for all subscriptions, dye yarn, and find goodies.
