Spring into Pink!
It must be spring. I have had several orders for pink yarn. The above photo is the first skein of Hardy Naturals Aran I have dyed. I really like the Aran, it is soft in the hands, yet strong. A versatile 100% wool yarn that falls between chunky and worsted. 16-18st on 5 to 5.5mm needles. I'm calling it Spring Blossom. Tried to get the tones I see beginning to bloom around me and in photos. This is what it looks like knitted up.
Speaking of pink, I received an order for a bunch of BCA Pink in a bulky feltable yarn. Now I have bulky. I love this yarn. It is 100% wool in a very soft single ply. I am going to make myself a sweater in this yarn next winter. Knits at about 12st on 8mm.
I posted about Hayley dyeing her first skein a few days ago. Yes, that is her serious "I'm at work on something" face. Didn't her yarn turn out pretty? (I'm so proud)
Mail Day! All these packets heading out to far away lands. Hope they bring smiles when they arrive.
Thank you for all your feedback and name suggestions. I decided to go with:
Twilight: for the medium blues/mauves. Thanks, Tracy.
Millefiori: for the wildflower/stained glass. Classy name, thanks Karen.
Copperberry: for the blend of blueberry and copper mohair. I was all set to use Blueberry Blaze, but Saralyn suggested a name I couldn't resist. Thanks, Saralyn.
