yarn, in print

Blues, Teals, Aquas & Turquoise

There seems to be a colour trend happening with many of my freelance designs these days.

When the package of yarn arrives at my door, it’s always a surprise to see what colours they’ve sent me this time.

Luckily I really love blues! Unfortunately, I don’t get to keep any of the projects. That’s not true, one of the projects will return to me after a busy life of photo shoots, trunk shows and gallivanting around.

Nine projects; some have been released to the knitting world and others are with the tech editors, photographers and publishers. From top to bottom:

Row 1: Koigu Kersti in Light Aqua (K2135) (watch for it in Vogue Knitting this fall!)

Row 2: Double-Breasted Jacket published in 60 More Quick Baby Knits, knit with Cascade 220 Superwash Sport in Blue Velvet (813)

Row 3: Garter Stripe Jacket published in Knit Simple Winter 2012/2013, knit with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Mallard (56) and Noro Kureyon #259

Row 4: Classic Lace Cardigan published in Vogue Knitting Spring 2013, knit with Kolláge Creamy Flamé in Aqua Marine (7112); SweetGeorgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Hush for a design that will be published this fall in time for Knit City

Row 5: Ribbed Cardigan published in Knit Simple Winter 2011/2012, knit with Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky in Stratosphere (585)

Row 6: Raglan Hoodie published in Knit Simple Fall 2012, knit with Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky in Light Blue (24) and Dark Teal (31); Zealana Rimu DK in Oceanwave (R05) for a pattern booklet that was to be released at the TNNA trade show this month

Row 7: Reversible Cable Vest published in Noro Magazine 2012, knit with Noro Silk Garden in Royal (8)

    1. You know they say that all the colours for a season are decided months, even years ahead of time by a group of people in an office. I wonder if we’re victims of that?
