Episode 167 - Knitting the colors of Fall 2018

Though I don't consider myself to be fashion forward in what I choose to wear--you will usually find me in jeans and t-shirts--I do have fun watching fashion trends and fashion designers and their work. I also love color, and the Pantone fashion colors and colors of the year are always fascinating. Sometimes they are right on, sometimes not so. But I often find the colors readily available as ready-to-wear clothing and in yarn palettes from the major dyers. With this in mind, we start our annual Colors-of-Fall Knit-A-Long. In this episode, we introduce the colors, and talk about some fashion trends we've spotted online. Enjoy! #yarniacsCOF2018 #yarniacs #yarniacspodcast
