TNNA Trois

As promised, the "relationship" part of TNNA news.

A couple of months ago, I got a call from Leslie and Diana from Mountain Colors. They wanted to come up with a series of kits that featured yarns from both companies in the same garment. I thought it was a fantastic idea!

Just that quick "Duets" was born.

The first project is a shrug designed by Jackie E-S of Heartstrings Fiber Arts, called Palette of Colors. It uses one skein of our Helen's Lace and one skein of Half Crepe from Mountain Colors. We are offering it in five colorways and it will available starting in February to any shop that carries yarn from either company.

This is the Sandridge/Chinook combination.

And here's another shot in the Red Rover/Ruby Ridge.

The other colorways are Black Watch/Evergreen, Gold Hill/Yellowstone and Larkspur/Blackberry. (I've listed the Lorna's Laces color first and the Mountain Colors behind the slash.)

These are limited edition kits and we'll do a new one every quarter. Next up is a sock from Cat Bordhi, then comes a Ginger Luters vest and rounding out the year will be something from Annie Modesitt.

It's the start of a very Colorful Relationship.
