We are thrilled to release the next edition of the Birdstreet Yarn Club for 2022!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IMAGES OF THE July YARNS, GO TO MY INSTAGRAM POST FROM July 25th, WHERE YOU CAN SWIPE TO SEE THE YARN.
They are not shown here, as many may prefer a surprise.
I don’t know about you, but we always seem to have music playing. Music picks us up, makes us cry, holds special memories and makes us get our groove on.
So for 2022, we thought we would celebrate music from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s in a monthly Top Of The Pops Yarn Club.
Each month will have a Mini skein set, of 6x20g 4ply M/N Minis, inspired by a song, with 4 months for each decade, giving 24 skeins for each decade. We will point you towards possible projects for knitting or crocheting inspiration, using either 6 skeins from one month, or 24. There will also be an option for a single 100g skein, on the same theme.
Each month we choose a top 10 of songs from the featured decade and ask you all to vote for your favourite. This could even make a great playlist for you!
We will then create a Minis set from one of the top 3, chosen by you.
You can take a look at our Birdstreet Radio 1980’s top tens and vote for your favourite on Instagram.
For August 2022, the theme is 1990's R&B, with the top songs being voted as:
Doo Wop (That Thing) by Lauren Hill
No Diggity by Blackstreet Ft. Dr Dre and Queen Pen
Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
The one chosen for Yarn inspiration this month is... Doo Wop (That Thing) with colours in the Single Cover (shown on my IG post).
AND ALL the colours, from the 4 months of 90's inspired Yarn Clubs, go together really well in a beautiful fade (shown on the Instagram post, in the last image).
We have decided that, due to upcoming Yarn Festivals and family issues, this will be the last of the #topofthepopsyarnclub , finishing this year's club. It has been a lot of fun, choosing songs and creating colourways to remind us of the 1980's and 1990's and we really appreciate everyone who has joined in with the voting and those who have purchased our colourways.
Sign up for August, with yarn clubs being sent out in the week beginning 8th August.
Hand-dyed using professional acid dyes; no two skeins are completely identical due to the nature of this process, though they are dyed in batches.
Every attempt has been made to wash any residual dye from the yarn, however a little may remain; especially with dark or vivid colours, so I recommend to hand wash separately. Reshape made products whilst damp and dry flat.
All our yarn is hand-washed with Euculan wool wash.
Colours may vary between viewing monitors; every effort has been made to represent a true reflection of the yarn.
