different shades

I find it fascinating how a different set of colours can change the feel of a garment.

Here’s the Weel Riggit pullover, in four very different shades of our lovely new Àrd Thìr yarn . .

Camusdarach (grey); Firemore (mauve-ish); Kintra (dusky pink) and Husinis (khaki-ish).

This palette creates a softly muted gradient – very different to the cool-toned sample I showed in last week’s post.

I liked this combination so much I designed a hat in it too!

The Weel Riggit hat is available to everyone as a Ravelry download (Knitting Season club members receive this pattern as a free bonus with their subscription)

With a deep, folded brim, it’s the ideal hat for the current cold snap.

What do you think of our new studio photography?

I love the way that there’s no distractions in these images – that you really focus on the knitwear . . .

But studio photography is a new and somewhat weird experience for me as a model – there’s really nowhere to hide!

Which colourway of Weel Riggit do you prefer – Ardnave (blue) or Camusdarach (grey)?
