New Colours

Two new colours which will be in the shop tomorrow evening.

Both have come from suggestions of favourite poems by the Knitting Goddesses (and Gods)

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae

As well as the obvious red and green of poppies, I wanted more sombre colours – so the brown of the earth which the soldiers returned to, and black for death.

Warning by Jenny Joseph

As well as the purple clothes and red hat mentioned in the poem, I love the idea of this old woman scoffing her sausages with a good helping of mustard – and this was a colourway which needed one of the colours to rebel and refuse to play nicely – so sausage brown and mustard yellow seemed right to me.
