New colorway: Nutbaby
New colorway: Mist - & a shop update on Thursday

New colorway: Aubrine

Lately, I've been playing with gray. Yesterday, it was gray + brown, today it's gray + purple, and tomorrow it's a gray + blue, though that one is much lighter in shade.

Meet Aubrine, a smoky, purpley gray.

I've been looking at baby names for a few months now and I really like names that start with Au - Audrey, Auberon, and August. Then there's Aubrey, which is a family name - one of my grandfather's brothers. Since this yarn is sort of almost an eggplant purple, I combined Aubrey with aubergine and got Aubrine.

Now this is my kind of purple. Or gray. However you want to look at, I dig it. I would love to make a scarf with this colorway, to go with my dark gray coat.

This one will be in the shop on Thursday - more details to come here on the blog tomorrow & through the newsletter, plus the usual social spots.

I just have to say it again - that is one gorgeous shade. My wallet will be glad I won't be within Internet range for the update. ;)
