Stylecraft Special DK Stock Update

Well due to the enormous success of this fabulous all round yarn we have added lots more shades to our stock now.  We have 68 colours in stock and we are adding to this all the time. https://www.primitiveangel.com/product/stylecraft-special-dk-100gm/ I love this yarn as its so soft and very versatile for both knitting and crochet projects and economical at the same time ….. bonus.  I use it alot in my crochet projects and am currently making a granny stripe throw for an armchair.  I am almost finished ….. just got the sewing in of the ends ….. my favourite part …. not!

In my throw I used the following colour recipe just in case you were wondering ……  parchment, camel, meadow, duck egg, navy, khaki, claret and burgundy.  I have an old armchair that I love and is just so comfortable but is wearing away slightly on the arms and wanted something to cover it up as well as looking pretty too.  These are almost the exact colours in my armchair 😉 …

Although Fiesta seems bright it works up really well when mixed with less vibrant colours and is surprisingly (to me) popular …….

My faves at the moment and seemingly with my customers are vintage peach …….

Lime is also a lovely shade of green ……….

And a good all rounder is parchment which is an old fashioned shade of cream/stone and mixes well with other shades……..

My three favourites at the moment are Storm Blue, Tomato and Camel ….. but I do love them all to be fair.

I would love to know what your favourites are and which shades you would like us to stock ….. as we are always interested in what our customers are looking for.  Also please share what projects you are working on as I am nosey like that 🙂 and just love seeing what other crafters are working on ……. after all we are a massive community and its such fun to communicate with like minded people all over the world.

 

Till next time …… keep crafting!
