For The Love Of Scum


There’s nothing like a brand new CLUB to launch a brand new year!

I know it’s hard to believe, but there might be a few people out there who think we are all talking about a thin layer of pond algae when we profess our love for scum. But, no way, not us. We are talking about those warm, earthy colors that only nature could suggest. These colors are the moss that grow on the shady side of trees and the mushrooms that smell of the earth. Scummy colors happen when you take any color and bring it into the dusky afternoon of a forest, shaded from the brightest lights.

Which side of the coin best describes you? Are you like Hayley who absolutely glows when wearing colors like Fiona, Triple Crown, Joe Banks or Ogre right up against her face? Or are you more like me who needs to place a cooler buffer between your face and the scum’s? While Hayley looks terrific wearing something knit entirely in warm, earthy colors, I use those same colors as the accent to help my brighter, cooler and neutral colors pop.


Please join us on Friday morning, January 8th at 9:00 am EST and again on Sunday evening, January 10th at 8:00 pm EST, as we launch our For The Love of Scum club. We will be featuring a brand new scummy mystery color that promises to be gorgeous as a stand-alone color or paired with a multitude of other Plucky colors. In addition to the mystery color, we will include lots of your favorite scummy colors and a great selection of brights and neutrals that play beautifully with their scummy color friends. A note about the Scum club…please don’t expect just versions of greens or yellows with this club – these colors come in many varieties and hues of all sorts!

The above collage and the list of bases below is a taste of what to expect for this update, but remember; the lists aren’t finished just yet! As always, we invite you to post your wishes in our Wishlist thread and be sure to keep an eye on the Update News & Announcement thread in our Ravelry Group.  Hayley and I will be posting some of our favorite mixes and combos, all focusing on scummy colors. This is also where you will find the final listings of colors and bases that will be offered in this For The Love Of Scum club update.
