What can you make with our Club colors? We recommend you use our brighter colorways (or even the more muted ones) in the lace portion of a garment, to break up the pooling. Then, knit the stockinette portions out of a coordinating semisolid! Or, make stripes using  your colorways and coordinating semisolids! Or, if you just want a 1 skein colorway project, make a pair of socks, or a simple mesh shawl! Here are a few examples:

We hope you’re finding lots of opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature. And if you haven’t, we give you full permission to take a hike! Nothing is better for you than getting outside, breathing fresh air, and taking a moment to be in the moment. 

Hugs,
