For anybody who missed our conversation with Joji Locatelli on Monday, you can catch up with our video up top. (Yes, there’s a special coupon code in there for those of you in search of savings.)
In this delightful visit, we talked about her designs in Field Guide No. 22: Grace—including a fair amount about the Grace Notes pullover.
It’s the design that flew to the top of Hot Right Now on Ravelry.
Grace Notes is full of Joji moments: a clever top-down construction, cables that wander from the back to the front, a V neckline that fits well.
In Atlas, Pebble
Joji likes to to show samples of handknits in gray and neutrals, so that knitter can imagine them in whatever color they like.
The yarn here is Atlas, our worsted weight Rambouillet. Joji said a number of kind things about Atlas, to the point that we tried really hard to keep our cool. So happy that she likes our yarn.
In Atlas, Skyline
So it’s time for a little reverie: what’s my Grace Notes going to be? I’m having a hard time figuring out what color to pick, so I decided to Phone A Data Friend and check out what Atlas colors knitters are ordering in Grace Notes quantities right now.
Interestingly (not surprisingly), the top two at the moment are the colors that appear in the Field Guide, Skyline and Pebble.
But look what happens next: all kinds of colors, dark and light.
No. 3: Truffle.
No. 4: Mallard.
No. 5: Seaglass.
No. 6: Shale.
No. 7: Peat.
No. 8: Merlot.
No. 9: Mouse.
Well, I’m down from 22 to 9 colors that I like. These all make sense to me, still pondering! What color is grabbing you?
PS Our Knitalong for Joji’s Field Guide designs will launch on October 10, so watch for news about that coming soon.
