When I found out that Michelle Obama had been knitting through the quarantine, I literally jumped up and down for joy. In honor of this amazing occurrence, I'm bringing back the colorway 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. As many of you know, I designed this colorway in 2008, hopeful that an Obama/Biden administration would bring a change that I could believe in. I also envisioned Michelle Obama wearing a shawl that I would knit for her in my yarn. This colorway was always for her. So, until November 4, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave: Michelle Obama Limited Edition will be available in all of our bases. I encourage you to use it to knit or crochet an Empower scarf (link to website), or knit a shawl for your favorite First Lady. Most importantly, get out there and VOTE.
Your yarn will be dyed to order. Please allow up to 2 weeks for fulfillment.
Now with sumptuous silk blended with merino and cashmere, Capital Luxury Lace is a two-ply yarn with exceptional drape and stitch definition. Buttery soft to the touch, Capital Luxury Lace works up beautifully for detailed shawls, cozy accessories like Joji Locatelli's 3 Color Cashmere Cowl, and show-stopping sweaters like Veera Välimäki's Riverway.
