Childhood Memories - Leisure Suit

  • $30.00


The approach of fall always brings me back to my own childhood. As I started developing this color palette, my childhood memories from the 70s came flooding back. Our green pyrex bowls. My grandma's shag carpet and rust orange Colonial print sofa. Dancing to Abba on the radio. I'm ready to waltz down memory lane in a Grandma's Sofa cabled sweater and a long cardigan made from Shag Carpet. How about you?

Please note that this is a dye to order listing that will be dyed and shipped by September 20. All skeins ordered together will be the same dye lot.

Leisure Suit is a light brown that edges toward grey that is great as the background color for a gorgeous yoked sweater or striped shawl. It's a more sophisticated take on that suit your dad pulled out for date night.
