Riverside Studio

| Sunday, July 12, 2015
Happy Sunday Readers!!!  I am so pleased that you all take the time each week to stop by and read what I have to share with you.  I hope you find lots of new and exciting knitting items and yarn as always.  This weeks review is a stunning specimen of yarn and I think you will all appreciate the beauty of depth in it.

A note from our dyer;

"Riverside Studio Riverside Studio is a one-person, operation working in a cooperative artist studio near Wakefield, Quebec. The studio, housed in an old school is located in a beautiful rural setting near the Gatineau River. I love yarn, fibre and colour. A knitting and spinning obsession and a desire to work with superior materials lead me to start dyeing. I have been honing my dyeing craft for about 5 years and I am happy to say that I love this business more than ever. I continually work on finding interesting and unusual colour combinations that look stunning when they are knit or spun up. I am also a visual artist, (drawer and painter) and art educator. My artwork can be found in private and public art collections in Canada and abroad. About the Yarns and Fibre My yarns and fibres are milled and manufactured in Canada. I use the highest quality acid dyes available. All the colours found in my Etsy shop, are repeatable colours, and mostly dyed to order. Yarn is dyed in small batches"



MCN Sock

Light Fingering / 3 ply
80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere
378 yards / 115 grams
I am in love with this base!!!  Who is not a fan of MCN, but this MCN seems more luxurious than most.  I'm not sure that's even possible, but it sure is in my book.  The cashmere has an ever so slight halo to it that is just stunning.

Ok, now lets talk about Depth of color.  It can not go unmentioned at how amazingly rich this particular skein has been dyed.  The midnight blue of the depths of the ocean to the hues of every purple grape you can imagine, all put over a base of the most beautiful stone grey you have ever seen.  I am extremely impressed with this color way and the dimensions of color that Kathryn used to obtain such a look.  Ladies and gentlemen, we are looking at a true piece of Art!

"Gloaming" is its rightful name

Anyone of you would come up with hundreds of amazing pattern ideas for this skein I am sure.  I just keep thinking of it as a stunning draping shawl.  With the hues of color, you could pair it with blue jeans and really make a dramatic look.  Did I mention how much I really love this yarn.  And not just this skein, you will be overwhelmed by beauty in every skein when you go and take a look at her shop.  She can take any color; green, pink, yellow and show dimensions of it that you have never even thought possible.  Be for warned, you may have to buy a skein or two in order to satisfy your craving for such amazing yarn!!

I love the bubblegum speckled reminds me of ice cream that I loved as a child.
