Well the last goodies are drying, or getting finished, last edits to patterns, price lists, and oh, yes, packing some clothes, then off we go in the morning to fly all the way over to Ohio. I grew up in Ohio, so this is always a little bit of a homecoming trip for me.
Last year we drove up to Akron and Cleveland to revisit some of those old familiar spots. This year we will be introducing two absolutely new favorite colors in honor of my Grandmother, Marie Sholes Stavely. The color names are Marie’s Purple and Marie’s Rose. There is a story, and the reader’s digest version is “that afghan” that my grandmother knit for me when I was 12, all bobbles, in three shades of rose and purple. I have it and use it to this day.
Marie was born in 1895, in Sterling, Kansas, and achieved a Master’s Degree in Voice from Northwestern University in Chicago. Although her BS was in Chemistry, her dad would only agree to the Northwestern idea if she agreed to take a degree in music. So, off she went, where she met my Grandfather who has his own very interesting story. That is for another post.
Photos are of the newest colors, shown in Bulky, palette, is shown in worsted weight.
See you soon, Blessings, Catherine
