It’s Raining Colors

After 10 days without rain, the streets are wet in Western Washington. Along with the rain, came a nice surprise, a large box from Lorna’s Laces. In addition to restocking some sold out colors, we’ve added several new colors, including some nearly solid colors.

Aslan is a new color-way for Vintage Knits. We like the subtle shading of this color-way so much that we added it in four yarns, Shepherd Bulky, Lion & Lamb, Shepherd Sock, and Helen’s Lace. Here are photos of Aslan, click on the photo for a larger view of this yarn.

Here is Lion & Lamb in Red Rover and Bittersweet:

The final yarns in this shipment were Shepherd Sock in Navy, Tickled Pink, Red Rover, Turquoise, and Flamingo Stripe. At first glance Tickled Pink and Flamingo Stripe look the same, but they are very different. Flamingo Stripe has two colors, light and dark pink. Tickled Pink has shades of pinks and purples. Flamingo Stripe is not a typical variegated yarn, it will knit into stripes, and Lorna’s Laces will donate 20% of all proceeds from the sales of this color in Shepherd Sock yarn to breast cancer research.

From left to right the colors are: Turquoise Tickled Pink, Red Rover, Turquoise, and Flamingo Stripe.
