Hello everyone! things have been very busy here over January as we get back into the way of things but today we announce our KAL for the next few months – the New Colours Kal!
We are constantly updating and changing the colours we have in 2ply Jumper Weight and we are lucky that we have a huge back catalogue of shades which if we need to we can take from and bring back. In recent years we did that with FC11 and FC7 which has really added to the palette and although this means saying goodbye to some shades its proof that it doesn’t always mean forever!
This KAL is a bit different than others we’ve done before in that you can use as many shades of 2ply Jumper Weight as you want but you must use at least 3 of the new shades. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun! As in the Fire Festival Kal at the end we will have a public vote so its always worth putting something in – you might win!
So the KAL: what we want you to do is –
- Knit a garment or accessory using J&S 2ply jumper weight only.
- at least 3 shades must be from our newly brought back colours: 90, 16, FC21, 32 and 1282.
- As many other shades can be used as you want.
- the item must use Fair Isle knitting/ stranded colourwork.
That’s it! The KAL begins on February the 2nd and runs until until the 2nd of May.
Now the new/old colours:
16 is a lovely bright blue
32 is a bright bronze
90 is a peachy orange
FC21 is a lovely marled lavender
And 1282 is a marled mid green.
We’ll be back with some colour combo inspirations soon but until then happy knitting and planning!
