We have one kit already in stock! Read on for more data.
BitterBlue is a stunning beaded shawl design by Barbara Benson , and the current in-stock kits are in the new and exclusive colorways developed by The Unique Sheep.
The colorways were based on two paintings that really appealed to Barbara. For copyright reasons, I am not copying them for this web page but take a look here and here so see them. We are calling the colorway based on the first one BitterBlue and the second one is Magic Carpet.
BitterBlue is a yellow to green to blue colorway. This is what we currently have in stock.
Magic Carpet is lime through to violet, with a touch of mixing in between.
And frankly, they are both stunning. The photos you see on this page were taken by Barbara and show both colorways -- hard to choose just one, isn't it?
The yarns sets are dyed in Luxe, a 600 yards set of a 6-skein Gradiance. With lots and lots of beads, size 6/0 -- four containers of four different colors, selected to work beautifully with the gradiance.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. Some knitters prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Barbara via her Ravelry web page . If that is how you would like to go, then set the "Pattern" drop-down menu to "No Pattern Needed."
Alternatively, if you would prefer a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that and we'll get that to you in your kit.
We also can send the pattern to you via email and if you choose that option, I will send it to you just before shipping out your kit.
Make sure that the Pattern drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
Please note that this is not an exclusive. In addition to these kits, Barbara will be making the pattern itself will be available as itself for those who want to use another yarn.
This is truly amazing.
