Spring Collection 2020

by Debbie Sullivan March 27, 2020

Spring Collection 2020

I've been working on recipes for some new colours to add to our yarn lines over the winter months, many of them inspired by thoughts of spring. We had intended to launch these at Knit City this weekend, but since that's been postponed I decided to take a moment to introduce you to them here on our blog instead!

Please note: quantities of these colours are limited right now, as we don't currently have access to our dye studio due to the COVID-19 situation. We will be dyeing more as soon as we are able to get back to work.

We've added four new colours to our Winfield worsted and Sutton bulky (which brings us up to a total of 20 colour options for these Canadian wool bases).


Celery is a bright and vibrant spring green. Shown here on Sutton, also available on Winfield.

 

Forget-Me-Not is a pale, cool blue, shown here on Winfield, and also available on Sutton.

 

Shiitake is a pale mushroom brown, shown here on Sutton, also available on Winfield.

Wizard is a rich and vibrant purple, shown here on Winfield, also available on Sutton.

We also wanted to round out our Grazioso silk/linen base this spring, since it's a great choice for lightweight projects to work on in warmer weather. The colours we chose are a bit less traditionally "springy" but fill in some gaps for this yarn line (we somehow didn't have any reds yet!).

Rosemary is a medium green with lots of depth.

Cinnamon Heart is a warm, rich red.

Silver Dollar is, well... silvery!

Fig is a deep, desaturated purple, with hints of navy and plum.

And last but not least, I had a lot of fun coming up with some new gradient colour schemes for Crescendo. We've added four new mini-skein sets, plus a new Molto Crescendo contrast colour. These can be combined in lots of fun ways, check out the Crescendo/Molto Crescendo Sets page for some of our favourites.

Flamingo, our new Molto Crescendo contrast, is a soft pink.

Pocketful of Posies, a gradient from pale pink, through purple to blue.

Millions of Peaches, a gradient from yellow through peach to pale pink.

Wintergreen, a light-to-dark gradient in shades of green.

Black Spruce, a green to black gradient which can be combined with Wintergreen go create a longer gradient for larger projects.

100 Days of Patterns
100 Days of Patterns

by Debbie Sullivan April 15, 2020

Since we’re still on a shipping hiatus for the time being, we thought it would be a good time to do a retrospective of our Sweet Paprika patterns. We’ve been publishing our own designs and those of other talented designers for over 13 years now, and have 99 patterns available here on our website and on Ravelry! We decided to call this project 100 Days of Patterns though, since we’re pretty sure we’ll have at least one new pattern released by the time we get through them all...
