June Color of the Month - Lust for Life

Last year I was asked to create a special color inspired by Michigan for ...have you any wool? yarn shop. Since I'm not a Michigan native, I didn't have any core childhood memories associated with Michigan foods, places, or musicians to help me out - until I discovered that Iggy Pop is from Michigan. I asked if I could do "Lust for Life" because it was a favorite song back in my college days - thanks to the movie Trainspotting reviving the song.

May Color of the Month - Uisce

Uisce (ish-ka) is the Irish word for water. And there is plenty of water inspiration in the Upper Peninsula when you are surrounded by the largest fresh water system on the planet.

This is a beautiful colorways with multiple blues that shouldn't produce color pooling.

April Color of the Month - Bláthanna

Bláthanna (blaw-hana) is Irish for flowers.
These are the sorts of colors I want to see after the long winter - magenta, pink, violet, periwinkle - pretty much anything other than snow or the color of dormant grass!
