Color Profile: Salt Marsh
In keeping with our nautically-themed color names for our yarns, we’ve dyed up a very springy goldish-green called ‘Salt Marsh’. Today, we’ll do a little color profile that includes the inspiration for the name, a project in process, and some great color pairings. And keep on reading, because there is some more good news to announce at the end of this post!
So first of all: ‘Salt Marsh’. Where does that name come from? Well, on our way to our favorite vacation spot of Wellfleet, Cape Cod you will drive past these beautiful salt marshes that inspired this original painting by Katie.
This was a color I couldn’t wait to cast on, because I felt it was really unique and I don’t have anything knit in a similar color. Something about this one that I just love. So I cast on the Lowbrow cowl that I think is really beautiful. It’s also very easy so if you’re a beginner and wanting to try some lace work — this might be a good pattern for you. I was able to quickly memorize the chart so it’s been a great piece to take with me in the car, or to quickly pick up and knit a few rows while Brooklyn takes her bath, or other random spare minutes I can find to work on it!
We have this color available in all 3 weights (Fingering, DK and Worsted) which will be available on Thursday!
This color pairs really nicely with a light or dark gray and a light or dark blue too!
