It's about time I finally made Comfort Fade Cardi Kits for the shop, am I right? Here they are folks! Scoop one up for a limited time only right here. We won't be doing these forever, but it's always fun to have a new little something in the shop this time of year. Below are bigger shots of the 4 colourways we currently have available - each one built around a stand out speckle. Which one is your fave? I know myself and I would almost definitely end up picking the blue one (Rocket!) but honestly, I could make a very strong argument for why I need a sweater in each of these palettes. I really love them.
I had a lot of fun putting together palettes for this sweater with colourways from our permanent collection and have been posting a few combo's to my Instagram. The combos below are not available to purchase as a "Kit" per say, but since they are made up of colourways that are always available as part of our permanent collection you could easily purchase the skeins separately and put together your own sweater kit!
Colourways starting from the top: 1) Shadow, Slate, Stormy, Charcoal 2) Truffle, Chestnut, Brick, Sunset 3) Fig, Velvet, Garnet, Poppy* 4) Ravine, Aurora, Truffle, Chestnut. *Ok, so in the photo I've actually used a skein of Cabin Fever in this palette, but Poppy would be the perfect substitute for a great hot red-to-purple fade!
As much as I love the kits I've put together featuring the speckles, these palettes are definitely... what's the word... richer... deeper. Equally beautiful, but more saturated. I am not a red gal but I love that purple-to-red palette and that bottom one with the Aurora is really speaking to me.
So, there ya go! If you weren't planning on knitting yourself a faded cardigan, well, maybe now you're reconsidering? 2017 is officially the year of the Fade, why try and fight it?
