Hard Rock Like Lancelot

Hard Rock Like Lancelot

The Color: A three stripe sequence of dark denim blue, golden brown, and charcoal grey. The Story: In the brilliant musical Hamilton, during the Marquis de Lafayette’s introduction, he refers to himself as “the Lancelot of the revolutionary set.” Later, Hamilton says Lafayette is “hard rock like Lancelot.” It may seem like a fun but loose reference (both Lafayette and Lancelot are French, for example), but there’s genius behind this connection. Also in Lafayette’s intro, he says, “Who’s the best? C’est moi!” In the musical Camelot, Lancelot has an entire song called “C’est moi!” in which he brags about how wonderful he is. And...

Sir Cadogan's Pony

Sir Cadogan's Pony

The Color: Grey is anything but boring in this grey-dient colorway. The Story: Sir Cadogan is a knight of the Round Table – at least he is in the Harry Potter universe (his tale didn’t make it into the Muggle versions). Most famous for his fight against the Wyvern of Wye, Cadogan was a foolhardy knight, and this battle highlighted his temperament. After the wyvern at his horse, Cadogan found a fat pony grazing nearby and charged back toward the beast, holding only a broken wand. And that broken wand was his saving grace as it misfired and hit the...

Joseph of Arimathea

This colorway just begs to be part of your springtime knitting projects, whether you need a new pair of socks for Fat Tuesday or a pair of fingerless gloves to keep away the last of the wintery chill. The Story: Joseph of Arimathea was responsible for burying Christ after his crucifixion. A legend grew around this story, claiming that Joseph possessed the Holy Grail, which he took to England, supposedly to Glastonbury, where he established a church....

Bran the Blessed

Bran the Blessed

The Color: This colorway is a strong and sturdy stripe going from a neutral oatmeal wheat color to the color of the sea at noon to a rich, deep brown. Then, almost out of nowhere, a surprise: magical aqua makes an appearance for a pop of color that’s sure to keep you alert during a late-night knitting session and revive any gloomy spirit. The Story: In Welsh stories, Bran is king of Britain — and a giant. He possesses a magic cauldron that is supposed to have the ability to bring dead men back to life. The cauldron is given as a gift to his...

A generous offer

A generous offer

The Color: This colorway walks the line between blue, and pink - sometimes dipping a toe into one or the other, but maintaining an overall image of   honorable purple. From a distance, it’s a vibrant, bold plum color; up close, it has streaks of pink and blue throughout, giving this colorway depth and interest. The Story: Guenevere has been accused of adultery, and Lancelot must fight against Meleagant to save her. The two knights start their fight on horseback, but Lancelot swiftly knocks the other man off his horse, taking the battle to the ground. After a short time, Lancelot hits Meleagant...
