Happy November!! It feels like forever since I’ve written a blog post, and this one has ALL the news!! The most exciting of which is to announce that my Ameyo shawl is now released on Ravelry and knitgraffiti.com!! Receive a 20% discount using coupon code AMEYO through Sunday, November 5! Offer will end at midnight Central time.
This was a very special collaboration with two beautiful Indonesian artitsts: Amelia of Papiput Yarns, and Meyo of Meyoco Illustrations. Amelia had already created these gorgeous color ways which were completely inspired by Meyoco, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. This is her Tough Sock base, shown in colors Peach Soda (Main Color) and Gili (Contrast Color, the blue one)…..they are basically my spirit colors. I was so enthralled with Meyoco’s illustrations, her use of color, geometry mixed with lovely organic shapes. So I started sketching and came up with a new brioche design that I cast on as soon as I received the yarn!!
Amelia x Meyo = Ameyo.
Read more about this pattern on Ravelry, and see all the amazing projects my test knitters created! There are so many wonderful color combinations. Also, be sure to keep your eye on Kitterly.com, they will have some very special kits with Papiput yarns, hand curated by myself and Amelia, starting tomorrow!!!
IN OTHER NEWS!!!!!! I am also extremely excited to share with you another design that was shown this week: my Cobaltoan hat, which has been published as part of Issue 23 of Pom Pom Quarterly magazine!! The official preview has been released to Ravelry, as well as their blog, if you want to get a closer look. Every single pattern in this Vivid Winter issue is just fabulous!! I feel so honored to be among such beauty and talent. Here’s a peek.
Aren’t these photos and styling just everything?? The beautiful photography was done by Laura Morsman (@lauramorsmanphotography on Instagram), and I just love the hand painted backdrops, painted by talented abstract artist Kim Whiteside (who lives in Texas like me!!). If you can get your hands on this new issue, you will not be sorry. It will keep your needles busy all winter long, and hopefully our winters will be a bit brighter, too.
Thank you so much for reading, and for following along in my fiber journey!! I love you all.
