Happy Monday to you! We have more fun things for you today in the update. We added in:
This is the perfect yarn for quick, last minute holiday gifts. I whipped up this hat in an evening and it’s so warm and comfortable to wear. (I added a pompon on top. Need helping picking the right pompon color? We’re an email or a phone call away and are always happy to help!) Pattern Suggestions: That Easy Guernsey Hat (shown), Fetching, Big Herringbone Cowl, 86-10 Headband, Copy.Cat C.C Beanie, Harvest Moon, Darkside Cowl, and Warmest Mittens.
Lots and lots of colors in this update. People love Rios for sweaters and larger projects, as well as for one skein quick knits. The worsted weight yarn is superwash wool, so it’s easy to care for, too. Pattern Suggestions: Malabrigo Hat, Three Pines Mitts, Rauwerk Trees, Split Stones, and Jasmine Scarf.
Veronica shares the inspiration for this color: “This color is inspired by the totally different mood of the holiday season that we have here in Tucson. One major adjustment we have faced is how different Christmas is here. Getting into the spirit of the season is a bit more of a leap since it’s lovely and warm outside. There aren’t many trees to decorate in the yard so people tend to put lights on the saguaro cactus. During the day its hard to imagine it’s even winter, but at night temperatures drop and the deep blues and oranges of the desert winter become our “reds and greens” of Christmas.”
