Newsletter #1: Beyonce, Tru Fru and Yarn Collabs


First things first, the world of yarn crafting is a playground for creativity. I've been struck by two colors that have captured my imagination: that brilliant blue and the vibrant green. I've been dreaming about how these shades would look on both the fluffy DK base and the chunky DK mohair. I can't help but visualize the depth and richness these colors would bring to my hand-dyed creations. What do you think? Would you love to see these hues come to life on these luxurious yarn bases?

Color Creation Magic: Blue and Green

Creating the perfect color is a bit like mixing a potion. It's a blend of science and art, a dash of this and a pinch of that until the color feels just right. These shades have me excited. The blue evokes feelings of serenity and calm, like the perfect summer sky, and the green, well, it's nature's very own masterpiece. As I dive into the world of color, I can't wait to see these visions come to life on my yarn.
