Spring Brights at Loop!
We recently changed our window display – the lovely Sophie and Juju took the lead and made it a showcase of all things happy and bright at Loop! Yarns, ribbons, books, toys and even blocking kits have lit up our storefront on Camden Passage. Just in case you can’t pass by the actual shop, we thought we’d share it with you here!
We were very much inspired by a lot of the neon and neutral colour combinations we’ve been seeing recently. Above is the fabulously electric ‘Edison Bulb’ colourway in Madelinetosh Sock. We think it would look great striped with a grey in a shawl (like this one!), socks or even a cardigan. It’s sitting atop one of our favourite bright/neutral samples at Loop, the Aunt Jane scarf, which we knit in the super-soft Jade Sapphire 2ply Cashmere and trimmed with Malabrigo Lace in Bobby Blue. In the background you can see another exciting colour by Madelinetosh: Oceana, again in Tosh Sock. (Edison Bulb and Oceana are available in Madelinetosh Vintage too.) Sitting atop Edison Bulb is BC Garn Jaipur Silk Lace, which comes in an array of brilliant colours and neutrals alike.
We had fun arranging balls of yarn like (more!) Tosh Sock, this time in Maple Leaf, and cones of Habu Silk Stainless Steel in front of our little ‘Loop’ letters.
This is one of our lovely sari ribbons, perched in front of a Loop favourite: The Muhu Island book. We also used some Tilli Thomas Sari Ribbon to newly trim our Oleander wrap. Here it is ‘modelling’ before we put it in the window:
There were lots of other fun little things we managed to include in the display like our fun, brightly coloured blocking kits, our little lion man with the neon foot, Knit Collage Rolling Stone in Buttercup Glow and our quirky little logs wrapped with some of our favourite bright colours:
If you love these bright colours but are still not sure quite what to do with them, then socks might be your answer! You can take pleasure in looking at your brilliantly coloured project on the needles and then have your own private enjoyment of its vibrance on your toes. We absolutely adore the new book by Rachel Coopey, Coop Knits Socks, which fully takes advantage of fun sock yarn colours!
Have a look at Tosh Sock and the new delivery of stunning Uncommon Thread Tough Sock for even more sock yarn colour inspiration.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our little tour of our shop window. Hopefully we’ll see you in Camden Passage somtime soon!
Your window designs are always so lovely. And don’t even get me started on Edison Bulb! I used it in my stripe study shawl & still have two skeins of Tosh Merino Light that I’m kicking around.
