Colormusing (and how it got that way)

Hi! I'm Lindy. Almost without realizing it, I've been gradually developing the Colormusing concept over the last several years, starting when I first developed Scraplet Skeins™ for Knittique, my line of yarns and knitting patterns that started as a retail store. That's when I first started focusing on creating color sequences, with yarn, that is.

I had also been into photography for quite a long time—before I started Knittique, and before digital cameras, in fact. And while doing a lot of freelance graphic design work, I started experimenting with creating photo montages; since these are made by blending multiple images in layers, the colors in the resulting montages were often quite different than the original photos. So I started pulling colors from the montages to create new color palettes. Which I later applied to her hand-tied skeins.

Photos turn into montages, which turn into palettes, which turn into color sequences and dye recipes for yarns and lingerie materials. It's the circle of my colorful life.

Over a number of years, I've acquired a collection of Etsy shops: one for yarns and patterns (Knittique), another for photos and montages on canvas, along with digital files for graphic design use (It's All About Hue), and the latest addition, My Bratelier, the new and growing collection of lingerie sewing kits, which include materials that are hand-dyed— yet another application of my original color palettes.

And now it's time to consolidate all these—yarns, artwork, lingerie kits, and (of course) color palettes— into one big shop, under one name: Colormusing. Because for me, and I hope for you too, it really is all about hue™.

    My color adventure started in 2002, when I opened Knittique, a retail yarn shop, and started developing my own color-sequencing yarns. Now my palette-based collections continue to expand into many areas, from lingerie sewing to photography!
