It's time for a yarn sale!

Posted on July 31, 2015 | 0 Comments

Hello!

As summer is heating up all the weather forecasters are just a bit too enthusiastic to declare a heatwave in New York . Oddly I've been keeping cool by thinking, working with and writing about yarn. I thought you'd like to see the new colors in the shop. And it's about time for a sale - use the code welcomeback and save 15% off any yarn purchase.  The sale runs until August 11.

P146

The dyers at Koigu produce so many color ways that are described as "rainbow". P146 is a rainbow, and it's predominately yellow, not so much blue, and lots of red violet. This is definitely a color for summer!

P163

For some men this color is considered "bright". P163 is a combination of green, rust and blue, the green is a bit bright but all the other colors are not. Works well against those blacks, navy and greys. Consider it for a boy's sweater to a man's hat or socks.

 

P347

Raspberries with your chocolate cake? Or would you prefer cherries? P347 is mainly pink and brown, a pretty and classic combination. This does not stripe, rather you get a few stitches in each color.

P518

Can looking at a color calm you? P518 is a sea green with splashes of blue and a hint of brown. P518 would make a beautiful sweater!

P879

P879 is one of Koigu's new color ways for 2015. As I worked with the yarn I envisioned a loose scarf or wrap, worn casually, maybe with a jean jacket (do folks still wear those?).

 

P928


Koigu is know for some wild color combinations and this is one of them. Imagine a bouquet of irises and daffodils with a red tulip of two. Try P928 for that purple or blue that needs a kick.

 

Until next month's colors.

Susie

Happy 3rd Birthday Koigu Mini Skein Club!

Posted on April 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

A birthday rolls around in April - the Chiagu Mini Skein club is 3 years old!  

In addition to the six mini skeins for April:

All April club members received two colors of Koigu KPM mini skeins , a semi-solid fingering weight yarn:

I was leaning toward a different birthday gift but as I was testing it out it stopped working!  I'm planning on adding the KPM colors to the Chiagu website and I thought "Why not send out more yarn in April?".   I fell in love with two colors that I never buy for myself - the curry yellow and the tomato red.  Koigu tends to do that you know, make you look at colors with a fresh eye.

Enjoy club members, and let me know what you are doing with your mini skeins!
