November's "Teaser"

A little sampling of this month's colourway to peak everyone's interest :) I found a new "liquify" feature in my photo editing software that creates a very cool effect without showing the yarn at all...reminds me of an oil painting too!

Everything ships on schedule on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

November's Inspiration - Gustav Klimt

I stumbled on this painting while browsing for an inspiration piece and the colours really resonated with me! Isn't this just a lovely and gorgeous painting? I'm excited to paint these colours!

I've decided to use 100% superwash merino this month as it reflects colours a little more brightly and I think it'll suit this painting nicely. Deciding what yarn to use on a monthly basis is also a consideration every month. With different base yarn compositions I will get different colour results so each month I have to think about what yarn to use depending on what painting is chosen. Pretty cool eh?

Hope everyone's doing well! I can't believe it's almost November...where does the time go?

October's "Spoiler"

Here she is her non-teaser format! I hope everyone enjoys this colourway! I liked the effect the bamboo content gave this colourway - made the colours nice and subtle just like the painting.

Hope everyone's doing well :)
