I asked Shauna at Farm Girl Fibers to hand-dye up a custom colorway for us.  The inspiration for this colorway was Kristina Plaas' photograph of the Little River in the Smoky Mountains National Park.  I wanted a colorway that was calm and peaceful...like this mountain stream.  This variegated colorway is the first of many custom colorways we hope to get from Farm Girl Fibers.  This one is to celebrate our transitioning from a brick and mortar shop to Your Local Yarn Shop ONLINE. 


I picked the knitted pattern "Perfectly Good Wednesday" by Alyssa Coffey because it featured many different textured stitches.  It was designed to celebrate small moments of clarity and joy amidst uncertainty.   


The crochet shawl I picked is "Just Breathe" by CJ Brady.  This is a shawl that will calm your soul as you relax and just breathe & enjoy your crafting.  Both of these triangular shawls seemed a perfect fit for this custom colorway yarn.
