Sometimes colors just speak to me and beg to become something magical and fun. My fascination with The Fiber Seed’s Fun Fetti has been long in the making! It is one of those colors that just begs for something, well, fun. I’m super thankful that not only is Lindsay an amazing dyer but also a good friend, and she sent me a care package with a special skein of Fun Fetti. I knew that I wanted to do something special with my skeins, but wasn’t quite sure what that was until I was coming out of a rough experience where I just didn’t find joy in my knitting anymore. Cleaning out my work baskets, I found my skeins of yarn and knew it was time to knit them up. As I started to play with the yarn, I knew that I wanted a ruffle of Fun Fetti, and stitch by stich, this shawl worked itself into creation. Whether you are looking for a fun project, or something to help ease your mind as your sort through some hard choices, or you have just had your limit adulting for today, Return to Me is the perfect remedy!
