December2015 /January 2016 Crib

december 2015 crib graffiti letters collage

All hail the December Crib! The Verdant Gryphon’s latest palette is dubbed “Letters” and is based on the colors in a photo by Assaf Ronen of street art in Tel Aviv. And what a Crib! First in the series is Blue Morpho, offering delicate butterfly blues in a field of earthy browns. Next, Jelly Bean Row is a handpainted handful of assorted flavors, from cherry to lemon to wintergreen. Then there is La Sagrada Stained Glass, which glows with juxtaposed dark and light blues, oranges, greens, purples, and yellows, seemingly lit from within. Rainforest Dragon brings us soothing pastel blues and greens with glimpses of deep purple, lime green, and magenta. And? Four new colors! Hidden Forest delivers the hushed misty violets and blues of first light; Pink Shadows paints a tender range of rose. Then really wake up, to Tangerine Tango, pure throbbing citrus.Hot Lava Love sizzles with crimsons to melt through any winter. Check out the cool Pthalo greens of Misty Mint. Last but far from least, Another Dye in the Pot: don’t let the casual name fool you, this one is killer, with deep browns leading into vermilion, spiked with complementary cerulean blue. Wow. All of these magnificent Letters are available in fingering-weight, fine and supersoft Skinny Bugga! with its custom twist, and soft, rounded, versatile Traveller. Skinny Bugga! is 80% Merino wool, 10% Mongolian cashmere, and 10% nylon, 425 yards per 4.3-ounce skein, gauge 8 stitches per inch on US #1 needles; Traveller is 100% superwash Merino, 280 yards per 4-ounce skein, gauge 5.5 stitches per inch on US #5 needles. A perfect way to end the year!

September Crib

Look alive: it’s the gorgeous September Crib! The Verdant Gryphon’s belle dame Jamie concocted this month’s colorways from a photo of Israeli street art, taken by Assaf Ronen. Big Rock Candy Mountain is a lollipop of flavor: cherry reds, banana yellows, and splashes of spearmint and grape; Carousel Horse is a blur of blue purple green white wow, fleeting and unforgettable. Next, Dash Against Darkness pits white against grays; and deep blues and greens swirl together in Lady of the Lake. Red Spider Mite is vivid as a bite, and Radical Chartreuse is a stand-out bright for every season. Painterly Retrospective Rainbow is a palette of reds, blues, browns, whites, and lemon limes. Erkline-in-White is a dream of cream. Last but definitely not least, our exclusive Tel Aviv, My Heart, throbs with passionate red, white, and grays! All available in Bugga! (70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon, 412 yards per 4-ounce skein, 5-8 stitches per inch) and 8-ply laceweight Mithril (100% merino wool, 750 yards per 4-ounce skein, 8 stitches per inch on US #1 needles).

August Crib Early Bird Call

IMG 1273

Summer is in full swing, and hot August colorways are chilling at the Verdant Gryphon Crib here at TYC. This month’s street-art inspiration comes from a photo taken by Romy Ronen, of a fantastic saturated wall in an alley in Ghent, Belgium. First in the VG August collection is Purple Islands of Morocco—hazy pastel violets, pinks, and a bit of blue, through half-closed eyes. Next, Sunkist Romance: an inspiring thrill, combining sweet pinks and blood red, pale teal, and tangy orange. On the Island is a gentle mix of cool, watery blues; gorgeous Urban Orchid is true to the flower, ranging from pure white to dark pink; Mardi Gras Parade is a parade of sensual deep burgundy, proud turquoise, and wild yellow-greens. Spider Woman throws flashes of vermilion, acid green, and yellow against pitch black; 4 spanking new colors designed just for the crib- read about one of those below. All available in Bugga! (70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon, 412 yards per 4-ounce skein, 5-8 stitches per inch) and Little Traveller (100% superwash merino, 280 yards per 4-ounce skein, 5.5 stitches per inch on US #4-7 needles). Ships August 1. Beauteous!

Hurry dears, because when each month is over, the monthly crib is gone from the wall, poof.

And now? strutting its stuff, a curated color line for the July Crib, based on Assaf's NYC Street Art Photo. Little Traveller is 560 yds/4 oz, 9 sts per inch on a US 1's (if used as a sock yarn), but can be knit as great lace weight using larger needles, suggested US 5's for lace. 100% superwash merino.
