We are so happy to announce our move from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, to the peaceful surroundings of Palm Springs, California. Many changes have occurred. I am no longer working a 9-5 job that takes me from my true love and passion, all things fiber, textile, color, fabric, to name a few. We have completed renovating the home we are living in, and I am in a position to devote all the time I want to my beloved yarn company. I have the ability to open my home studio, by appointment, for now, and for open knitting, crocheting, or any form of hand sewing in the near future! I still have just those 70 or 80 production colors that you can find on the website, and the standard variegated combinations, also on the website, but the fun ones are those ” Uniquities” the one-of-a-kind, paintings on a skein of yarn, inspired by nature, that you can only purchase in the studio. So, feel free to reach out to me by email, if you would like an appointment.
I was happy to look at the Pantone Colors for 2017 and to learn that what is “new” for 2017 are colors from within my existing palette of production colors, whoo hoo! Apparently the 2017 ” color of the year” is our color Peridot, introduced about 3 years ago. ( I like to plan ahead!)
My plans for new colorways, center around team colors. I have long wanted to do something in this vein, and for now, the first one will be to honor one of my favorites, the Ohio State Buckeyes and do a red and gray combo. In RBY-speak that would be Holiday Red and Charcoal. I plan to do my 2 color skeins, so you will knit or crochet starting with one color, ending with the second color.
Does that look like those Buckeyes, or what? You can order now, if you like, just by emailing me, firstname.lastname@example.org or stay tuned to find this on the web site. You may also place requests for your favorite team colors.
Happy knitting, crocheting, quilting or whatever your passion of the moment is,
Painted with Passion,
Red Barn Yarn
