May 2019 Subscriber Color Inspirations!

  • Hanks of grey, bright blue, variegated purple and blue and purple yarn.

This month’s colorways are based on a photo of a tile that newsletter subscriber Cindy received, which is a beautiful mix of colors. It immediately fueled my imagination on all the different colorways I could create.

I’m so happy with how this month’s colorways turned out, because I think I really nailed those tile colors :-D. All four of them work well together for colorwork, and of course individually.

Bright magenta/purple is “Create Your Self,” Soft Gray with a tinge of pale pink here and there is “Infinite Possibilities,” rich royal blue is “You Only Live Once” and a pretty speckle of pinks, blues, grays along with some of the yellows and oranges in the tile is “Imagine It Real.”

All four are available for preorder from now through May 26, or while supplies last. All orders will ship out by no later than the week of June 24, 2019.

You have your choice of two bases this month: Birte, DK weight Superwash Merino, Cashmere and silk, and Verdande, Worsted weight of the same blend. Be sure to choose the correct base from the drop-down menu on each product page.

Patterns I love for Birte: Soldotna, The Purl Code, Anker’s Summer Shirt, Campside, Copenhagen Calling, Pop Crop Cardi, Beatha, Milis Mitts, The Rain Outside, Baby Cables and Big Ones Too, Panier and Stream of Consciousness.

Patterns I love for Verdande: The Weekender, Humulus, Citrine, Hipster Shawl, Lillet, Vancouver Fog, Sinistram, Stream of Consciousness, Veronika Cardigan, Koivua and Just Enough Ruffles.
