COLOR. 🌿 One of my favorite steps in producing a new pattern collection is selecting the colors our photographed samples will be knitted in. It's an exciting, if dizzying, process to zero in on a focused palette -- which color(s) will best showcase a given design, as well as how they work together within the collection as a whole, are two of the most important considerations.
Palette also sets the mood! For our Linen Remix collection, we wanted to evoke the brightness and warmth of spring, within the setting of a greenhouse bursting with life (what the pictures don't tell are the below-freezing temps of our Maine winter, just outside).
I've had these skeins of colors from the Linen Remix collection sitting on my desk these past few weeks, brightening my view -- these colors have me daydreaming about those magical first hints of spring. From top to bottom: Kestrel Sand, Senza, Whelk, Terrapin, Lira; Sparrow Penny; Kestrel Tellin; Sparrow Chicory, Surf, and Sea Salt.
