Which is the Best Mini-Skein Colourway?

Spoiler Alert: If you’re in the Mini-Skein Club and haven’t seen your January bundles yet, look away now!

One of the things I love most about the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club is that it’s designed to fit whatever size project you are making — you can join at any time, and then stop your subscription whenever you have enough yarn for your particular project.  So we have a few new members each month (love it when they come to the Raverlry group and share their excitement!), and a few who’ve collected all the Mini-Skeins they need for now.  And whenever someone leaves the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club, I always send an email to ask for their feedback on what we’ve done right, and their ideas about how we could make it better.

Mixing colours

The answers are always so interesting and helpful.  And the idea that’s been coming through the most lately is that folks would really love to be able to order full-sized skeins of their favourite Mini-Skein colourways.  Such a fab idea!  So I tested it out last month with three Mini-Skein colourways I offered as Limited Editions and…

WOW!  You guys really meant it!  We’re elbow-deep in the process of dyeing up all those orders right now (the studio is a sea of Malachite at the moment), but your amazing response has really got me thinking…  You know that dyeing for the Mini-Skein Club is when I get really play with colour.  I experiment, try new colour cominations, work on different dyeing techniques, and just let my creative juices flow.  And the results can be amazing.

Now, sometimes the colourways are repeatable and sometimes they are not, but I thought, hey, why not ask you guys which are the best from each month’s bundles?  After all, it’s your opinion that matters the most!

So here are January’s Mini-Skein bundles (Ombre & Gradient, and Multicolour).  And I’d love it if you’d answer two questions for me:

  1. Which one colourway called out to you the first — the one you loved as soon as you saw it?
  2. And which one do you think would be the best to become a permanent addition to the SpaceCadet line-up?

(I know for a lot of you, those questions sound exactly the same, but they’re actually quite different.  One cals for a gut-feeling kind of answer and the other for a more careful and strategic response.  But if you have the same answer for both questions, I totally get it — some colourways are just like that!)
