Welcome to the July 2018 Shipment of the Kitterly Kit Club!
We’re well into summer now and I know a lot of you are traveling -- which means time in trains, planes and automobiles to relax and get some more rows in. But whether you’re adventuring on vacation or enjoying some time at home, we know you’ll enjoy this month’s kit club.
This month’s shipment:
Rêveuse Shawl by Francoise Danoy
featuring Dream in Color Jilly with Cashmere
Francoise Danoy of Aroha Knits is a Mystic Fibre Muse. A Yarn Alchemist. And a Franco-Maori American Australian living in Japan. She’s a designer with a mission to start a movement. She passionately believes that knitting is not just a hobby, but a form of art that can be transformative and impactful. Not only does she design beautiful wearable art, but she also teaches and encourages others to find their confidence and passion in their own knitting and designs.
Reveuse is the French word for “Dreamer” and this shawl is a dreamy mix of texture, color and shape. .
The yarn for this kit is from Dream in Color. Owners Nancy and Veronica first opened a yarn store together in 2004, but soon after Veronica started experimenting with dyeing yarn in 2006 they closed the store to focus exclusively on their yarn. Their colors are diffuse and dreamy. Veronica has a fine art background and is inspired by the gentle but clear colors that can be found in nature.
Their Jilly with Cashmere is a beautiful single ply merino wool and cashmere blend that is wonderfully soft to the touch and will drape beautifully once knit into the beautiful Rêveuse shawl.
We’ll see you next month!
