FO Parade: Club Colourways

Last year I wrote a post about how lucky I feel some days, dyeing yarn and finding new inspiration and friends on Ravelry. I thought it would be nice to share some of that inspiration with you as I really enjoy The Uncommon Thread's group and the members are so supportive and talented. 

The Club has been a great success and each month I just love seeing everyone's reaction to their surprise package: either a bright or a neutral skein of a mystery fingering weight. The colours are exclusive to my members and won't be available until 6 months after their original production so there is always quite a buzz about them. So I thought it would be nice to share what some of the members have been making as there are some real gems.

First, Saffron (Mooncalf on Ravelry), made this wonderful Cream and  Sugar Cowl by Alana Dakos. This skein was from January this year which means she knit it up in super fast time. The colourway is called 'Pitch' and these cables really work well. The base is Lush Twist, a merino/cashmere/nylon blend. As always Saffron, your project is divine!

Next we have the ever so talented Caroline (Koanizee on Ravelry) who made a stunning pair of socks with her October skein in the colourway 'Cobble'. The base this time is Super Sock, a 100% merino with a crisp tight twist. Caroline combined her skein with some Lioness Arts and Plucky Knitter to make these stunning manly socks. What's more - no pattern! You can read all about them on Caroline's blog, 'Knit's Cat'.

Lastly, Zarah (ZarahMaria on Ravelry) test knit Dani Sunshine's Dry Stone Cowl pattern using November's bright club colourway, 'Beeswax'. The sunny yellow skein was Super Soft Shetland, which has a fingering yardage but is so soft and plump that it knits up like a sport weight. This is such a beautiful project Zarah, I love it!

Stay tuned for more FO parades in the future as there's so many wonderful knits happening out there with TUT yarn that it would be sad not to share!
