Red Barn Yarn is pleased to share with you a new partnership we have started this year. Together with Love of Knitting, Red Barn Yarn has created kits containing our specially dyed Worsted Weight yarn to use in a brand new Mystery Knit Along! The clues to help you knit (and solve) the mystery are sent directly to your inbox in the Love of Knitting newsletter. The first clue has been sent out, and it is an easy introduction to the project.
The vision for this is based in nature and started as a complete mental image for Designer Catherine Petitti, which she then sketched on paper. This pencil drawing was shared with Molly Conroy-Ungerecht who took it from paper to yarn and three dimensions. Molly is a fabulous designer / knitter / part-owner of the Hands on Knitting Center in Redlands, CA. The yarn has been specifically hand painted to maximize the impact of the design. Kits are available in three colorways: (shown above from left to right) Charcoal and Vintage Leather, Birch, and Tanzanite.
Of course, it is possible to participate in the Mystery Knit Along using your own choice of Red Barn Yarn Worsted Weight and you will get a nice finished product, but without the WOW factor. We would love to hear from you as you work on this project! We’d love to see your project progress and invite you to share with us in our Ravelry group, on our Facebook page or even tag us in a Tweet!
