New Colors



We introduced five new colors at TNNA. We liked the tonal thing we did with Satsuma last season so well, we decided to expand upon it this time around.






The first one is Fiddlehead. It's got several great green tones with just a hint of a golden brown.












Hermosa is named after a neighborhood here in Chicago. The colorway has shades of purple. Purple seems to be very popular this year.













Next up is Midway. Midway is one of the two big airports in town. The colorway is very calm and cool. Greys and blues predominate.












Sheridan Road is on of the major north/south streets on the northside of town. It starts in the city and goes all the way up through the northshore suburbs. It's a melange of blues.












Last up is Valentine. Technically, it's not a new color....several years ago we took a few colorways out of major rotation and this is one of them. While we were making decisions about which colors would make the cut for fall, there was one on the table that everyone liked. It seemed very comfortable somehow. Then the light bulb went on. It was Valentine! Or so close that we decided to introduce you all to an old friend.












We have things all knit/crocheted up in the new colors. You'd probably like to see them too, wouldn't you? I'll get crackin'.

Very pretty. Having gone to Loyola, right on Sheridan Rd., I think I may need to get my hands on some of that. :)

I am smitten, especially by the first four! All my resolutions about knitting from my stash just flew out the window!

Ohhh, the Valentine is the colour of my dreams! I will be looking out for some of this in Sock for sure.

So - is there a colorway called O'Hare, too?? I must say that I much preferred dealing with Midway when I used to fly into Chicago, and that colorway is great, too!
