Lucky Violet Color Co
A Special Event colorway, hand painted by fine artist J. L. Fleckenstein, available for pre-order for a limited time on our Betty yarn base (60/30/10 Fine Merino/Cashmere/Nylon Fingering Weight; 420 yards/100g). Limited quantities available.
Haiku is the title of a fine art oil painting created by artist J. L. Fleckenstein (aka Jackie Fleckenstein of Lucky Violet Color Co) for her 2010 professional art exhibition, "Moments". The painting was later featured on a wine label for Blanc de Orleans, a lovely white wine by Leonard Oakes Estate Winery.
The colorway is inspired by the painting as well as by a Haiku style poem written by the artist many years ago. Everyone who purchases the colorway will receive a special edition knitting pattern for a lacey, drapey triangle shawl knitting pattern designed also by J. L. Fleckenstein. (The knitting pattern will not be available to the general public until August 2018.)
The yarn will be painted and shipped during the week of August 7 to August 11, 2017 along with a special surprise gift and special gift wrapping. We will sell only a limited quantity of this colorway, so please order early. You may order in any quantity, but if you intend to make the shawl you will need 2 to 3 hanks as the design will have two size options.
Orders will be accepted between now and July 23, 2017 or until the quantity we are offering has sold out.
