We've paired up one skein of Colour Adventures Cashmere Sock (70% Merino wool, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon; 400yds/115g) with our RCY Peaks and Ridges Cowl pattern by Ann Budd. It's part of our "boredom buster" program during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Your "kit" includes: the Peaks & Ridges pdf download code and a Colour Adventure yarn of your choosing (while the colours last!) You'll also need a 3.5mm/US4, 40cm/16in circular needle.
Colour Adventures was started by Elena Nodel in 2012 out of a passion for fibre, colour and of course, knitting, especially for her daughter, Maya. As her daughter grew, she became the inspiration for her creative work in knitwear designs called ‘Anadiomena’, both for children and adults, and her amazing colours in her 'Colour Adventures' yarns.
Due to health issues, it was becoming more and more difficult for her and her husband to run Colour Adventures on their own. So they have partnered up with Camella and Ryan, owners of 'A Twist of Yarn' yarn shop in Vernon, BC, as an ongoing partnership. They continue to offer the same beautiful bases and colourways, that Elena has created and we have all come to love!
A Twist of Yarn would like you to know is that for every skein purchased $1.00 is going back to Elena’s family as a legacy fund. Elena passed away at a very young age, leaving behind a husband and 10 year old daughter that were actively involved with her in the business and this is our way of showing our (as a knitting community) appreciation for Elena's life work!
