This is a colorway I was playing around with the other day. I was aiming for a field of flowers kind of effect. It came out looking more like stained glass. When I knitted it up though, it did look to me like a field of wildflowers.
I would appreciate some feedback on this one. Do you like the colorway? Should I include it in my list? And names? Wildflowers?? Help.
I still have plans to try for a field of spring flowers effect.
Okay, here's another one. On the left we have Copper Blaze, and on the right we have Blueberry. In the middle we have a combo of the two that was a special order this week. I was thinking Blueberry Blaze. The purchaser suggested Blazing Brooke, and Fire on the Water. Any votes? Or other suggestions?
This next one is a no-brainer. It is my Blueberry semi-solid. I dyed Optimum in this colour for a special order this week. It coordinates with the Blueberry Mohair.
This is my yarn, yes, yarn for me! It is Mondial Giada sportweight in 70% merino and 30% silk. This is one of the softest, smoothest, loveliest yarns I have ever felt. I am going to cast on for Shui Kuen's beautiful new shawl pattern over at elann.com: Moonlight Sonata. View the pattern HERE.
This is a special order yarn that falls into the family of colors I call Hydrangea and Pansies. Hydrangea is lighter and on the pink/blue side. Pansies is darker and deeper with more blue/deep blue. This one falls in the middle but with a few dark pink accents. Any ideas for a name?
This is a better shot of Lilypad. Doug's name, and I love it. It's assorted greens, with splashes of iris blues and purples. Reminds me of a pond I pass whenever I walk at the inlet.
Finally, I was reading Grace's blog the other day, and I came across a beautiful photo of Alstromeria she had posted. I had to try for those colours. So here we have Astolomera on a skein of sock yarn.
Some of these are one-of skeins I have added to my shop. Some will show up in the colorways list when I get a chance. I do appreciate your feedback.
