September 2017 Yarn Club: Frida Kahlo

About a month ago I mailed out the 1st installment of the Fall 2017 Yarn Club, and that means I can finally show it off here!

The theme this time around is inspired by famous art and artists, and we’re starting things off with a self-portrait by Frida Kahlo. Specifically, “Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky”, sometimes also called “Between the Curtains”, which you can see and read about online here.

This is painted in softer colors than Kahlo used in many of her other works - she is known for bright colors and bold lines - and she has such a strong, self-confidant look on her face in this piece.

If you chose sock weight, the yarn was Connie; an 80% Superwash Merino/20% Nylon yarn that gets 6-8 stitches per inch on a US 0-2 and comes in 435-yard, 100-gram put-ups.

If you chose worsted weight, the yarn was Beth; a 100% Superwash Merino yarn that gets 4-5 stitches per inch on a US 6-9 and comes in 225-yard, 115-gram put-ups.

If you liked this one, you're going to love the next one.... more on that in a few weeks!
