It's the time of the year again! Stephen West just announced the new MKAL shawl for this year and it's called Shawlography. I just love how he create all these fun sounding names! Last year I curated 3 sets for Slipstravaganza. This year I made 3 new sets, 1 from last year winter update and 1 more from the more recent Coffee + Rain update.
The kits I'm making will be a pre-order slated to be delivered by the final week of the month. Pre-order continues until 24 Sept, while stocks last. Orders will be made on demand and will be shipped out 1 - 2 weeks upon order received. Bases available are Merino Singles and Sock. Here are the colors in mini skeins but the actual delivery will all be in full skeins. Stephen suggested wrapping the yarn in a lazy swatch, I call mine the super lazy swatch!
Autumn in Paris Autumn in Paris consists of all new colors, some will make an appearance in the Autumn update. Autumn in Paris was designed to match the 'High Contrast Multi-Color' color palette that is shown in the Shawlography intro pdf.
80's Aerobics was inspired by, of course, 80's aerobics attires! It came snapped in as soon as I saw the announcement video. 80’s Aerobics was designed to match the 'High Constrast Multi-Color' color palette that is shown in the Shawlography intro pdf.
Hygge's concept is compacted in these colors. I'm a sucker for soft colors like these and really happy that one of the suggested color palette matches these soft, gentle colors. Hygge was designed to match the 'Low Contrast' color palette that is shown in the Shawlography intro pdf.
天泣 - Tenkyuu
天泣 (Rain from the Cloudless Sky) was conceived in last year's winter collection and I think the contrast will make a really amazing Shawlography shawl! 天泣 matches the combination of 'Neutrals with a Pop' + 'High Contrast Color Family' color palette that is shown in the Shawlography intro pdf. 天泣 consists of Peach Perfect, Lake House, Sea Foam, Rock Star and Frozen. Full skein color samples can be found in the colorway page.
レトロカフェ(Retro Cafe) was created in the recent Coffee + Rain update. This combination reminds me so much of the retro wallpapers and posters and I think it'll make an excellent combination for those who love a richer colored shawl. レトロカフェ(Retro Cafe) matches the combination of 'High Contrast Multi-Color' color palette that is shown in the Shawlography intro pdf. レトロカフェconsists of Moss Code, Lady Murasaki, Carrot Smoothie, 陽and天上のお茶. Full skein color samples can be found in the colorway page.
