Alrighty then. This is the second go-round of this blog post. The first one disappeared in an unfortunate delete incident. I may have gotten a little distracted by Fleetwood Mac Rumors. Anna put it on a few minutes ago and it brings back more than a few memories. Some of those memories make me blush.
Let's get back to the here and now rather than 1977 shall we?
We started shipping the Lorna's Laces Spring 2011 colors in the past couple of weeks. If they haven't arrived at your LYS yet, you should be seeing them shortly. We did five, four multi's and one nearly solid.
As with the past couple of season, we've been leaning towards whimsy with the names. This series derived from a facebook post I made lamenting the underutilization of the word "shenanigans". I was flooded with words along the same vein and we decided to embrace it.
Shenanigans, the namesake for the collection.
We all fell in love with this color the instant it came out of the dyepots. We were worried that it might feel a little autumnal, but we decided to go ahead with it because we liked it so well. Besides, it just screamed Shenanigans to us.
Next up is Tomfoolery.
This is our bright for the season. Magenta, rich orange and golden yellow make for nothing but fun.
Monkeyshines is and elegant neutral.
This colorway developed from a email I got from an LYS owner. One of her clients had mentioned that golds and greys were all the rage in home decor. She sent along a few pictures and it really got my creative juices going. I developed several variations on this theme and it was hard to narrow it down to this one. It's fun to do this sort of collaboration. As they say, two heads are better than one!
The last of the four multi's in Hullabaloo.
It's actually a little more muted than this photo represents it. I think it's a perfect gender neutral color. There's touch of aqua in it, but not enough so it tips to reading "boy color". Besides kids stuff, Hullabaloo seems like a perfect match for blondes although now that I'm writing this, I can picture it being wonderful for folks with darker coloring as well.
Last is our nearly-solid, Kerfuffle.
It's a deep, rich grey with a little purpley/blue/stormy skies thing going on in the background. I've got this one on needles making Anna Bell's Favorite Cardigan from Modern Knits Vintage Style.
