Each summer Must Stash does something special! In 2015 we had the Great Gig tour featuring the colors inspired by the album art of Pink Floyd. It was so much fun to take the 'band' on tour! I visited three different cities during the summer and had special skeins, coupons and surprises at each stop (plus we had concert tees)! I am wearing mine today while remembering visiting with old friends and making new.

For the summer of 2016, I wanted to continue the new tradition so Must Stash hosted The Summer of Peace and Love. Our Festival of Color pays tribute to the granddaddy music festival of them all: Woodstock. Once upon a time, people came together in peace and harmony and Must Stash honors Woodstock with a new color way featuring 20 stripes each one representing a different headliner:

  • Jimi Hendrix Magenta
  • Sha Na Na Pink
  • Ten Years After Silver
  • Janis Joplin Aubergine
  • Bethel Mud
  • Country Joe Green
  • Santana Straw
  • The Grateful Dead Lilac
  • The Who Red
  • Catskill Mud
  • Jefferson Airplane Aqua
  • The Band Twilight
  • CCR Green
  • Blood, Sweat & Tears Orchid
  • White Lake Mud
  • Joan Baez Blue
  • Crosby, Stills and Nash Orange
  • Joe Cocker Green
  • Sly and the Family Stone Purple
  • Woodstock Mud

Also a part of the Summer of Peace and Love was Happy Snowman and Family Reunion. Both of these colors are meaningful for summertime fun and were knit by the amazing Susan B Anderson for her new pattern Smooth Operator

I was very happy to offer all the summer colors Dye to Order for a couple of months but like all good things the Summer of Peace and Love has closed. 

I would like to thank everyone who supported Must Stash this past summer!
