You may have seen the video of the new Palette colors coming into the office and Kerin hording all the new pinks...

I thought I would show you a photo I took of my desk, which has ALL the Palette colors (new and current) arranged in color order. I was swatching some book project recolors for the November catalog, and it was a lot easier to see them all laid out like this. Good thing I have a big desk!

(Click photo for a bigger view.)

Aren't they fabulous? I am thrilled about all the new colors we added to the line. It really feels complete. Kerin and I both love Palette and colorwork knitting so much that we're going to be hosting a knitalong starting in August. I have a lot of ideas about what I'd like to do for the KAL, including offering alternate colorways & yarn subs for popular patterns, but I'd love your suggestions too. Is there anything cool and colorworky that you would like us to do? Any particular pattern that you'd like color combo ideas for? Leave your ideas in the comments, and I'd love to make them happen (within reason of course!).

In the meantime, I'll leave you with another Palette photo focusing on Kerin's beloved pinks:

Look for our Colorwork KAL and the new Palette colors at the beginning of August!

Love, love, love the colors! I would like to dive into them. My vote is for a Bohus style cardigan using Pallette. I've checked Poems of Color, but none of the patterns are calling my name. In my archive, and I do have an archive - I am a librarian as well as a knitter, I've unearthed and ancient Bohus style cardigan, that looks doable. It's a copy a friend passed onto me about 20 years ago, of a women's magazine (McCall's? Redbook? Ladies Home Journal?) of a Bohus cardigan knitted at 6 stitches to the inch. Would you like to offer any hints on how to convert to 7 stitches to the inch?

Need more photos like these of the full spectrum, but labeled! lol
I'm loving some of those darker grey/blacks, I just wish I knew which was which!
A single photo like this really gives a much better idea of how the colors relate to one another, rather than the individual swatches.

Wow..I love all the new color choices. I'm am currently knitting the Palette Fair Isle cardigan that was a kit awhile ago from KP's. . I didn't buy it I'm using the Palette colors that I was able to order that were in the original plus some of your others that are a bit "bolder". I am half way done...I may hold off doing the rest which is the top part of the sweater which are the lighter shades......your new ones would be GREAT.

When will these be available for sale?

I'd love to knit a colorful Fair Isle scarf. I don't know anything about reversible knitting but it would be great to have a scarf where both sides looked great using Fair Isle.

The pinks are GREAT! I plan to be making a new Chullo this fall; my lavender version got stolen, I think, so I will be making another. The last time, I wanted more reds and pinks in it, so this is an EXCUSE to buy more Palette, my fave yarn.

I'm in awe! I think a big order o' Palette is in my future...

I'm almost inspired to re-view my ancient video on color work (c. '80's). I say almost because I am incredibly lazy but I blame it on the weather. When the air gets crisp with Fall...that will really inspire me. As for a KAL, easy hats and fingerless mitts would be my preference. LOVE all the new colors, especially the corals.

I've been wanting to make this "Snowflakes" baby/kid sweater from Lesley Anne Price's Kids' Knits for some time, though I fear it may be above my skill level.

The book appears to be out of print (I bought it at a garage sale), and I couldn't even find a picture of this sweater on Ravelry, so this exact project is obviously out, but I'd love to do a small project that would help me develop the skills necessary to make this sweater one day.

Perhaps a little something for those of us less fair isle proficient in the mosaic colour work method...but really anything with these beautiful colours is A ok with me.
