For weeks I’ve been sharing sneak peeks of my work in developing ombré yarns, and I am delighted to say that I’ve finally achieved a technique that suits my picky personality and allows me to get smooth, lovely, long-run colour changes into the yarn. This Friday, The Blue Brick’s Ombré line will hit our online store! Good news for anyone who has ever been cart-jacked on Etsy; this yarn is dyed-to-order so there will be no shortage.
To launch my new Ombré line, and in keeping with the spirit of the season, I’ve chosen to develop 3 new colours, all inspired by plants and flowers. The first in the series is called ‘Rose’. I chose to base my work off a yellow/orange rose with hints of coral in the outer petals.
Hitting the colours was such an enjoyable exercise. I love how they go together!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with ombré, or gradient, yarns this yarn will transition smoothly as you knit, though all the colours you see in the photo.
Rather than areas of colour scattered throughout the knitting, the colours will graduate from one end of the skein to the other. ‘Rose’, along with the other 2 colours in my springtime series, will be available online starting this Friday :)
