Color Effects

Rowan’s Master Colorist, Kaffe Fassett, has created beautiful combinations for Regia Yarns.  Those of us familiar with his work can spot a Fassett design a mile away, and love them all.  But of course the knitting patterns were so daunting–combinations of fair isle and intarsia, with complex color changes using often dozens of colors and yarns in one project!

Now Fassett revisits some of his favorite shapes and patterns using combinations of these variegated yarns with each other and solids.   Get fabulous results with simplified technique!

Notes from TNNA

Notes from TNNA

This was a great TNNA market! I came home feeling newly energized and enthusiastic about knitting & crochet: new yarns, new designers, fashion trends. It was actually the most exciting Market I have attended, even though there were fewer exhibitors and fewer attendees than previous markets. Maybe it was just that all the excitement was distilled down and distributed among fewer people.
I arrived Thursday afternoon and went to a class on intentional patterning of hand-dyed yarns. I need to actually try it out on some of our yarn before trying to communicate it to all of you.
Friday I spent most of the day in class with Cat Bordhi, (you’ve heard of her, right?) learning more about writing up patterns for kits. Cat is one of those people who just “charges into the fray” and somehow things come out right. So much energy!
Monday morning I spent with Lily Chin, in a class on interpreting fashion trends. What a fun and knowledgeable lady — she is soooo talented, and she talks a mile a minute.

I hope to use these classes to increase the interest in our newsletters as well as our products and patterns that we offer to you.
