The perfect fall and winter palette

Happy Place comes in a beautiful range of colors mixing rich, evocative, and saturated colors with a few lighter, vibrant hues.

The warm hues and shades are reminiscent of cozy fall and winter days in a cute little cottage nestled deep in the forest. Imagine sitting on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa, happy place, and a beautiful view of a wild autumn landscape outside!

You can combine the colors in countless fun and interesting ways depending on whether you prefer subtle earth tones or a bolder, more vibrant look in your projects. It was important to Toni to create a diverse color palette that suits different people and moods, as she puts it:

“Happy Place means different things to different stitchers. The various shades of the color palette are meant to mix and match to create the perfect mood for your current project. Whether your Happy Place is vibrant and colorful, moody and neutral, or somewhere in between, there are plenty of options to build the perfect palette. Go with your old faithful colors, or expand past your comfort zone and add a shade you wouldn’t normally reach for.”

Happy Place comes in 20 mélange colors (Happy Place Melange) with corresponding solid-color versions (Happy Place Solid). 

Since the cotton doesn’t absorb the dye, the yarn gets a mélange look. Toni urges you to experiment with Solid and Mélange to create the perfect mood:

“Each shade offers a solid version and a complimentary mélange – change the mood of your projects by using all solid, all mélange, or combine the two for an unexpected delight.”

The mélange version is perfect for adding a touch of personality to simple stitches and designs, while the solid version is great for working with colors and patterns that focus on texture.
