Finished the Good Vibes shawl and I really like it I almost used a solid two skeins! The dark purple is a Hedgehogfibres skinny single in Potluck that I got from Cross and Woods. I paired it with a soft single in Hypnos.
Hypnos is a white with purple, violet, blue, and black and while it is saturated in some areas when knitted it makes a light shade with some small pops of color! This shawl kind of reminds me of a night sky with fluffy clouds in the moonlight kind of. Or like a mythological night garden. So dark and light at the same time!
I really should finish my beaded shawl, so I am going to try to work on that a bit (before I cave and cake some more yarn for a different shawl! Lol!)
I have been so busy visiting family that I did not have a lot of time to do a full update but this update will include new colors!
The first new color is Blue Crab (top row right). It is shades of green and blue with speckles in red and blue. Super fun. The second new color is Garden (bottom row left) and that is a pale blue green seamisty color with purple, pink, and orange speckles. It is very soft and pretty. I hope you enjoy them!
The Update will happen today Thursday at 4pm EST. i have been trying to offer different times for everyone around the world!
This update is going to feature new colors on Tender our non superwash merino DK. Colors: Seamist, Fisherman's Jacket, Pale Betta, Seagrass, and Anchor! There will also be a few Dives and Cliffside Rose on Shoal ( Fingering Merino/Nylon)! Hope to see you there!
So I finished my dotted rays by Westknits and honestly I want to start another (any excuse not to do anymore beading on the two shawls that I have on needles that require beading!).
It is sooo pretty but unfortunately with my tan it is not soo good on me! And honestly I do not really understand why I get so tan. I take my son to the beach 2-3 times a week for around 5ish hours each time so you may be thinking that is why I get tan, but I apply sooo much sunscreen I am practically white and I apply sunscreen every hour to my kid (since he goes in the water) and he gets tan too (but less than I do since he wears a long sleeved wetsuit top (the water is cold!) and shorts). Anyways while I soooo love the colors I will probably end up selling it, but it is just soooo pretty. The pink and light turquoise with pops of neon yellow and pink! (hugs) Anyways here a pic of me with the shawl!
As you can see I probably need something bright pink or red (not really my colors but they look the best on me :/ ) The colors I used are Hedgehogfibres in Genie, La Bien Aimee in Peche Mignon, and my own hand dyed yarn that was a tester but thought it was just lovely with the two! Now onto some fun facts! We live around 8 minutes to the beach but if you notice we live in the woods! Due to the mild climate we have loads of holly and oak trees and I mean loads. We have holly forests which I believe were kind of a mistake when they farmed the land, they may have left holly scrubs but over time the scrubs turned into forests of holly. I personally am not fond as you cant walk around in the yarn near the edges without stepping on holly leaves (ouch!) but in the winter when half of them (there are male and female holly trees!) have berries they sure are pretty! If you know more about all these coastal holly trees be sure to comment! And should I do another dotted rays? (please say yes!)
A lot of Catwalk will be making an appearance in this update! Featuring: Pearl a pale ivory with pink, pale purple, and grey speckles, Tahitian Pearl that is grey with purple, blue, green, and grey and black speckles, Cliffside Rose which is a pale pink peach with red and yellow speckles. Also there will be Poseidon and Dionysus on Catwalk as well!
Also new is Adrift which is 70% mohair and 30% silk. I dyed Beach Party, and then Sunlight Zone, Twilight Zone, and Midnight Zone. They are so soft and really fun shades of blue.
There will also be some new colors on Shoal that include Driftwood and Beach Rocks! I hope you can stop on by!
