Golden Kitty would like to show you some of our Candyland Exclusives knit up. This is our favorite part about exclusives – we have no clue what they will look like when they are actually knit into a project. We get these boxes of beautiful skeins and know they’ll be amazing but the true excitement comes from seeing your projects pop up! If you have a Candyland Exclusive that we did not feature, please share with us in the comments below. We would absolutely love to see them!
First up is Squoosh Fiber Arts who created 9 tonal colorways that coordinate with each of our milestone lands. These colors are subtly variegated which lends well to garments. These colors are available on Merino Cashmere:Sock, Ultra DK, Ultra Worsted, and if you can’t decide which color you like best, collect them all in the rainbow-y Beefcake Mini Set!
Blue Moon Fiber Arts completely knocked our socks off with the Candyland colorways they came up with. We double lucked out: 1. Candyland was Tina’s, BMFA owner, favorite board game as a child so she had inspiration coming out of her ears and 2. We were able to snag 2 new bases: Super Sparkle & Sock That Rock: Mediumweight! These colors are also available on Targhee Worsted and Tigger Targhee. Let’s stroll around the board, visit some lands, and drool over these sweet colorways.
Three Irish Girls are creating holiday candy mini-skein exclusive sets for us and we are bursting with excitement! We have only released 1 Adorn Luxe set for Valentine’s Day but you all will absolutely want to be on the lookout for the next holiday. It has arrived at ESK and it’s taking everything we have to not share it with you just yet! It was released a few days ago so we don’t have a knit photo to share but we wanted to make you all aware of what’s to come during the year.
Last but definitely not least, Madelinetosh. We paired up with Tosh to create 12 monthly Willy Wonka exclusives. So far, we have seen Willy Wonka and Golden ticket but, trust us, you will definitely want to stay tuned for the rest of the year. You’ll be able to collect these colors on ASAP, Tosh DK, Tosh Merino Light, Tosh Vintage, and Twist Light. We have some fun stuff up our kitty sleeves – characters, fun scenes, and memorable Wonka moments translated into amazing colorways!
You can find most of these knitters in our Candy Yarn forum on Ravelry. Check them out and maybe give some hearts to their awesome projects! We are missing some colorways so, please, feel free to share your projects below! Thanks to the amazingly talented dyers for teaming up with us on this sweet project.
Yummy stuff! Now I have “I want candy” stuck in my head. Bow Wow Wow, 1980…….?
