The Doodler

There is a new Stephen West KAL starting in November.

My head is swimming. There are so many options for this. Dream in Color Jilly with Cashmere. Madelinetosh merino light. Mrs. Crosby Train Case. Tosh twist light.
Tosh sock.

From the KAL group on Ravelry...
Yarn: Fingering weight

Yardage: Color A - 355yds / 325m
Color B - 285yds / 261m
Color C - 395yds / 361m

CHOOSING YARN
This year’s mystery KAL uses 3 colors. I recommend using solid, semi-solid, or speckled yarn like the beautiful colors from Hedgehog Fibres.

Color A
Think about color A as the main color, the leading role in the shawl. This could be a speckled or multi-color yarn or a beautiful neutral. It has space to shine. If you want to use a self-striping yarn then I recommend using it as color A. Color A needs a buddy so along comes color B.

Color B
Color B is an accent color. It needs to offer some contrast to color A. Think about a pop of color or something brighter or darker than color A.

Color C
Color C joins the party fashionably late. It’s a color that demands to be featured. This could be a bold sassy color or something dark and dramatic.

Try to avoid 3 colors that look very similar like 3 shades of light blue or 3 busy multi-colors. If the colors are very similar they will blend together. Instead, choose a light, medium, and dark color for your trio or 3 colors that offer different personalities.
I started to play with some colour combinations.

Jilly with Cashmere
-Cabaret
-Hot Pants
-Singing in the Rain

Malabrigo Mechita
-Lotus

I could show more but I really need to get back to work. If you want to join but are afraid of picking colours, come in and see me in the store. I will find a combination that will inspire you.

Today I'm rehanging garments throughout the store. Wow. We took a lot of garments to Woodstock.

I will be announcing our next store KAL this week.

We have another huge shipment of madelinetosh arriving this week
