Hey Folks! 2015 is SUCH an exciting and busy Summer, if it seems that at times The ModeKnit Yarn Team of Annie & Kathleen (& Becca part time!) has been incommunicado, it’s because we’re crazy busy. And busy is GOOD! As we grow our company and develop some wholesale accounts, do more fiber shows and just …
One of the most satisfying things about making hand-dyed yarn is seeing the garments our customers create! The marriage of yarn and project is fascinating, we love to see how a pretty skein of yarn is utilized in the hands of a skilled knitter or crocheter. Right now on Ravelry there are 19 completed projects …
SHERLOCK IS BACK! More about that later… THANK YOU! We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped us to find our footing as a fledgeling yarn company! Our customers, our vendors, those who helped with advice, booth tricks, microwaves (thanks Karen!) and color suggestions – thank you to ALL of you! …
The random number generator has spoken, and the Mini Skein set winner is….. JOAN! Joan, we’ve emailed you. Please reply so we may send out your mini skein set. Here’s her winning comment “The colors are all so beautiful! Isn’t business growth wonderful? Both daunting and exciting at the same time.” We couldn’t agree more! …
Straighten Your Knocker brings all of the rich, masculine colors of the portal into Sherlock’s world together into one beautiful colorway.
Mary’s Maids is a celebration of purple (sorry, Lilac) in subtle, semi-solid beauty! This colorway would work beautifully with any other color in the 221B series – or with many of our Semi Precious colors.
This is a subtle, ladylike colorway, nothing too extravagant. Charming, likable, not unlike Mary herself.
But there’s some depth there, too, something entirely unexpected.
Another most exciting aspect to the day is that I FINALLY finished dyeing up large amounts of the two final colors in the 221B Series, and have put together sets to ship! I apologize for the several days delay in getting these out, but I feel it was definitely worth the weight!
I Will Burn You Colorway
I WILL BURN YOU is not a colorway for the faint-of-heart.
It’s rich, deep, and has a medium-length color change which WILL cause you some grief if you’re expecting tiny little color change bursts.
In other words, this color WILL BURN YOU!
But fire is exciting, no?
It seems simple, just black, right? But look deeper, there’s some grey, a bit of cream, even some sharp red hues that move toward a cerise. That’s because an Old Fashioned Villain isn’t as simple as one might think.
I have to struggle to keep all of my colorways from being different shades of blue, I love the color so much! What I particularly love about THIS blue colorway, Bristol South Pool, is that it’s so changeable.
A complex colorway with depth and regular changes, if you allow Yellow Dragon Circus to have it’s own way, this yarn will OWN YOU.
It’s fitting that the color scheme of Sherlock’s Kitchen is green – all shades of green! Light green, medium green, leaf green, industrial green, jade, olive, spring, pistachio, honeydew – ALL THE GREENS!
A Study In Pink references the myriad shades of the victim’s coat, shoes, suitcase and – most important – cell phone, blended in a vibrant, snappy colorway which would work magnificently with any neutral, or with an equally sizzling tones!
