This colorway - Thank You, Pearl - is a tribute to Pearl Chin, owner of Knitty City in NYC.
Pearl passed away on October 27, 2020.
I designed this colorway in shades of pale purple/lavender. I wanted a color that was neutralish, elegant and quietly beautiful. I will be forever grateful for the day when I first walked into Knitty City, whispered a hello to Pearl and said I dyed yarn - she handed me a flyer to the first Moms and Makers event and said I should apply. I've met some wonderful people through Knitty City and a few have become very good friends.
All proceeds from the sale of this colorway will be donated to City Harvest - one of many charities Pearl supported.
Thank You, Pearl is available in three bases
Please note - all three bases will also be available at Knitty City starting Friday 11/20 if it is easier for you to purchase it directly from the shop. Either way, a donation will be made to City Harvest.
