New colors for April

Our newest colors (from left to right) : P113L, P876, P905, P319X and P818 are currently 15% off! This set of new colors is predominately blue. I promise that others colors are coming!

Is anyone going to Stitches United  in Hartford this weekend? Sewing and quilting have been added to their classes and their marketplace. I'm headed to the Marketplace on Friday - if I like what I see I would consider taking classes in the future.

I'm taking the bus and the train so I plan on finishing up my Camomile cowl/scarf . Once its done I'll write up a blog post about Koigu's new aran weight yarn, Chelsea. (Psst, I like it so much I hope to stock some colors by the end of summer.)

September's New Colors and Koigu Pairings

Posted on September 16, 2016 | 0 Comments

September's new colors chiagu.com

Striking new KPPPM colors are 15% off until September 23rd! From left to right: P106, P112B, P134, P370 and P603. 

  • We had P106 earlier this year; however it was more blue with less pink and yellow. Another good choice for baby projects.
  • P112B is a fantastic purple with green and violet - fabulous color for folks who love strong colors.
  • I like to describe P134 as a "dark rainbow", a nice complement to those jackets we wear when it gets cooler.
  • We had P370 previously but it was more grey and not as speckled as this dyelot. It's a lovely blue with teal occasionally peeking out.
  • I'm loving P603 which is orange with some curry yellow. It goes well with our newest KPM color - 2400-0013 which is the color black. (Halloween colors anyone?)

Speaking of KPM - I'm adding the solid colors throughout the year and move the KPM yarn to their own section on the website.

 

Koigu Pairings KPM/KPPPM yarn

See how the KPM plum picks up the plum in the multicolor skein? One of the customer I know in real life has already scoop up this pairing for her Koigu collection.

I've started to pair up single skeins of KPPPM (multicolors) with single skeins of KPM (solid colors). I call them Koigu Pairings . Let me know how you like them.

New York Sheep and Wool (Rhinebeck) is around the corner and for the second year I will be a vendor at the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show Friday evening. I've been sewing up a storm - there are new prints for the drawstring project bags and (hopefully) I can sneak in one or two new bag styles. I love meeting you guys - stop by and say hello!
