An adventure started in Edinburgh!
Four creative women met in Edinburgh and were inspired by the scenery, colours and tradition of old knitting patterns.
Moods of Colors created an amazing palette in her dying pots on the True Corriedale yarn base.
Skeindeer, Kammebornia and myself created one pattern each, which will be released during autumn of 2018 matching the yarns in Moods of Colors’ Yarn Club. Bålgård Hat is the first of these three patterns.
