Quick Catch Up
I hope this email finds you well and that you have all had a good week since I was here last. I thought I would pop in with a speedy catch up to let you know that a couple of the things I mentioned last week are now live...
Persian Tiles - Sandalwood
My new version of the Persian Tiles blanket, which I have called Sandalwood, is now available as a kit via US yarn company Mary Maxim.
The Sandalwood version features rich dusky pink, terracotta, gold, green and blue shades and it has been made using a lovely soft yarn called Premier Everyday DK. The images make the colours look a little washed out and yellow - they are much more vibrant and sumptuous in reality. We had a bit of a hiccup with the US photoshoot due to the current situation and only managed to get the original version of the blanket professionally shot in a room setting. The Sandalwood version and the light blue version are now in the post to the US to be photographed. I am sure the new images will do the blanket far more justice than these do - I took them on the studio floor before the blanket headed off in the mail!
All this said I am incredibly pleased with this blanket and hope that you will like it too!
Whilst in Mysore in January I was inspired to make the new version of the design by a traditional Indian woven carpet design I saw in one of the many fabulous handicraft stores. It was similar to the one shown in the image below.
Over the course of February and into early March I produced my new version of the design and was very fortunate to be supported by US yarn company Mary Maxim who have now released the kits for the new colour way and the original dark blue version shown below.
Please note that Persian Tiles Sandalwood is only available as a yarn kit via Mary Maxim. We do not have a yarn sub document we can supply outside of the kit so please do not email asking for one!
If you want some ideas for your own colourway you can join the dedicated Facebook Group. You can get a download version of the pattern via Ravelry or a paper brochure or yarn kit for the original or light blue version via the Janie Crow web site.
