Baking Is The Best Part

Slip right into the September season by taking the chill out of the house at 475°… That’s right, cherry pie! Glow up the oven with sweet, sensational tones of subdued reddish-pinks and soft, graham cracker browns. Cradled by the steadiness of warm neutrals, staying in has never smelled so good.

Retro 90's teen: Teal, fuschia, red, yellow, and purple color palette for September Yarn Of The Month.

Retro-Rebel Nostalgia

Remember when this sort of weather meant new Chuck Taylors and a walkman (...or iPod ;)) at the bus stop? Take a walk down memory lane with the spunky gumption of 90’s jewel tones, and pretend that September is still the beginning of the year. Whoa… That’s like, a total mind-game. This sassy shade of teal is curious, but it is greyed-down, so it isn’t too interested, or anything. You know, whatever.

However you choose to swatch and style your September, Happy Crafting! It’s a great time to be a knitter or crocheter, full of creation, and opportunities… because everyone you know is about to get chilly.
