La Bien Aimée has created a new colorway in honor of an iconic knitter who is known the world over for her absolute passion for the color orange. Gaye Glasspie, also known asGGmadeit, also known as the Iconic Orange Lady, is a knitter,bloggerand an important voice in our community. Her wise words on her Instagram and blog articles have helped us become better as knitters, and as human beings. Phrases like "Stand in the Gap", "If you think you can't, you won't" or "It's not hard, it's new" have resonated with so many of us!
A couple of years ago, GG and Aimee met and she had something to tell Aimee: La Bien Aimée didn't have a really good orange! Needless to say, this stuck in Aimee's mind and was added to her list of new colors to invent (it is long and ever expanding). When it came time to name that color, Gaye's words kept echoing in Aimee's mind: "a really good orange"... Really Good Orange! RGO!
Soon after, a companion color was born. A red version of RGO: RGO Tomato. It bridges the gap perfectly between RGO and one of our new Miyazaki colors, Calcifer.
RGO & RGO Tomato will be available starting on July 16th!
