Let me just tell you how amazing this stuff is! I got to try out 4 lovely colors of this thread: Lichen, Hollyberry, Ash, and Sagebrush. When I opened the box, I was floored at how vibrant, rich, and lustrous this thread was. Absolutely stunning!!
I could hardly wait to play with it! Allyson from Holla Knits wanted me to work up some of my earrings and rings for her with the Curio, so I got right on that! These are a few of the photos Allyson sent me from the photoshoot with the new pieces I sent her.
Is that lovely or what?!
Curio is a brand new, cotton crochet thread by Knit Picks. Up until now, I have been an Aunt Lydia’s Thread girl, but now I’m hooked on Curio! They don’t have your traditional, basic colors. These are colors I have never seen in a thread before. They are gorgeous! This thread would be beautiful for crocheted jewelry, doilies & coasters, knitted lacework… So many possibilities!! And it’s so shiny!!!
I think it’s just a teensy bit thicker than Aunt Lydia’s, but it shouldn’t change your pattern significantly. Because of the lovely sheen of this thread, the stitches are showcased beautifully. I just can’t get over how rich the colors are! You really just need to try it for yourself!
Here’s the fun part…
