We are going on a “magical mystery tour” and invite you to join us. We know the designer and the yarn and both are fabulous – so we say what could possibly go wrong?
The term “fade” is the current “it” word in knitting. Ravelry has several patterns that use the term. The one we love is by Andrea Mowry of DreaReneeKnits.com. Her tag line is “Andrea Renee knits for the love” – just like us!
Find Your Fade took the knitting world by storm. It calls for about 1600 yards of fingering weight using as many colors as you wish. Andrea’s vision is that the colors will work together or “fade” or “melt” together!
We are excited that Andrea created a new pattern comically called What The Fade! This is where the mystery begins as we do not know what she has designed. We know that it will take 2400 yards and use 6 different colorways. Beginning on August 31, Andrea will issue one clue a week. (P.S. some brioche knitting is involved. If you do not know brioche, this is a GREAT time to learn with Kathy’s good guidance.) You purchase the pattern on Ravelry and each week receive the next clue! (P.S.S. if you do not have a Ravelry account we will purchase the pattern for you.)
Mrs. Crosby has taken the guess work out of the adventure by issuing 4 different 6-skein colorways that are perfect for the What The Fade.
We want to take this knitting journey and invite you to join in and knit EITHER of Andrea’s great patterns. Kathy will host the KAL beginning Saturday, September 2 from 11 – Noon. Bring in your project to get help, moral support or simply to show off.
