A few weeks back a very popular blogger, Grumperina, had been showing us how to make stripes in socks without jogs using four shades of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock and a spiraling technique. Even though there were lots of pictures, I had trouble envisioning how it would work, but once I put yarn on needles it all made sense. Very cool! I am a sucker for the technical side of knitting.
I thought the colors she was working with looked very nice together, so I contacted her and asked if she'd like a special Grumperina colorway. She said YES! And a new colorway was born. It was a huge success and we've been dyeing like crazy for Birds 'n Yarn to keep up with the demand.
I got to thinking that it might be fun to collaborate with a bunch of bloggers on colorways and turn it into a series. I've contacted three or four and they all said yes! My scheme is to bring a new one out on the 15th of the month starting in July or thereabouts.
I have several bloggers in mind that I'm planning to contact about getting involved, but I'd love to hear who some of your favorites are.
