Childhood Memories - Shag Carpet

  • $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?

All skeins ordered together will be the same dye lot.

Shag Carpet is a perfect golden green that changes with the light, just like those higher end shag carpets when you ran your hand over them. A fantastic grandpa sweater or cozy socks color.
