Blue Blue Blue

Since last week came out gold/red/purple-tinged -- for some reason, that's what kept leaping from the dye table -- I decided to cool off in this heatwave with some cooooooool blues. There's some glorious blue banana silk (think dark Cookie Monster) and some kettle-dyed blue soy. In addition, I painted a few special hanks -- 2ply Australian alpaca, and some mystery mill end fine laceweight.

For those customers who've been eyeing the INTENSE black sari silk, I've dyed some thin wool companion yarns to knit with the silk for scarves.

If you're looking for a knitter's gift, there are some gift kits available that include stitch markers, excellent-quality bamboo knitting needles, and a handy little bag. All ready to go.

Yes, it's HOT here in Adelaide, so dyeing had to happen very early this am. Back to the needles. If you can't stand the thought of the heat on Sunday, feel free to email orders to -- I wouldn't blame you.

Stay cool!

Mel, in Addy
