Color Stories: Germantown Collection

The Building Blocks collection colors came from our love of classic styling and design, so we went for a palette of neutrals mixed in with some deep primary hues. We have seen gold and deep plum everywhere this season, so it was a no brainer to include honey and rhododendron. The deep dark (true) navy works well as both a neutral and color, and you can never, ever go wrong with jade!

Color Stories: Mojave Collection

As we mentioned yesterday, Mojave is "Meghan's Yarn" - inspired by her love of cellulose fibers and saturated, bright colors, it will come as no surprise to hear that she wanted a lively collection with pops of color to accompany the release of the yarn. When putting together color inspiration for the designs, we focused on some of the brighter colors, balanced out by a few classic neutrals.

The end result is so lively and bright - perfect for summer knitting!


Color Stories: Scout Collection

It is no secret that neutrals reign supreme in my life: I love black, grey, white, and navy blue. But adding a little pop of color here in there is also a good thing, so when putting together the palette for the Scout Collection I focused heavily on the neutrals in the line and added a lovely pop of yellow and pink to add both a bit of femininity and color.

Knitting a Rainier for myself is high on the to-do list - I'm thinking of going with the navy and natural combination used in Ballard, or maybe go a little lighter with charcoal heather and natural.
