Murky Fades Too!

  • An aqua to teal yarn fade.

Whenever I create a new yarn color, my mind inevitably jumps to ideas for a companion color (and another and another) in an endless progression. I plot and plan so many shawls and top down sweaters it would take three lifetimes to knit them all. I think about which color mohair or boucle to add to bring the whole idea to perfection. I think about which one of my lovely friends I can barter with to knit another sample for me!

When we think of fades, what usually pops to mind is a progression of speckles, most likely with a generous helping of neon. Not that I have anything against unicorns, mind you, but I’m here to tell you that deep and murky fade too. Having all the time in the world these days, I’ve built five new fade sets using Deep Sock or Harbour Singles Fingering, with several more to come soon. Each set includes four 100 gram skeins for a total of 1600 yards per set. And until life gets back to some normalcy and we can all get back to work, all items in my Etsy shop remain 15% off using code CXL15 at checkout.
