Tina at Blue Moon Fiber Arts has made my year.
She made this colorway with inspiration from the palette for Knitalong.* I'm having trouble finding a word to describe how that feels. To get a colorway designed with your book in mind. When I visited Blue Moon for the first time I thought that was more than a person could ever hope for. To see so much of their yarn in its natural habitat. To meet the people who make this wonderful stuff. Then a colorway for my book! Then, then....! Tina wrote and said there were more colorways, a series. I haven't seen them yet and I'm dying to (no pun intended, actually).
All you knitalongers have made my year, too. We're nearing the end of our little rainbow here, with the book nearly drafted. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.
And ggrlogan, smileshiner72, aka Jan-Knit, and Jennifer MW? That yarn up there is yours. I randomly chose one person from each of the book knitalongs to give this to.** And there's one more skein to give away, after the Recycle Along ends. So please submit some recycled sweater photos.
* It's called Tide Pool. Here are several more shots of it up close.
