New Shifting Shades Yarn

While traveling and teaching in Colorado last week, I spent a lot of down time experimenting with some of my new self-striping yarns.  Many of these handpaints are like the Fingerpaints yarns I tried a few years ago, and I have decided to renew this line with a fresh selection of colors and patterns.

I also have been experimenting with yarns that have large blocks of self-striping colors and these I call Shifting Shades. Unlike the Fingerpaints which have about 6 to 7 yards per color in a repeat, Shifting Shades have only 5 colors, some of which are 50 yards long.

Any patterns I design for these yarns will be simple and specifically written with different construction options that will allow you to use the yarn’s striping abilities a number of ways. In each pattern, the project can be knit 2 different ways to create different looks.

There will be just a small collection of these patterns and I hope to bring the first 3 of them and the models to TNNA.
