Colours for This Week

Thank you to everyone who came by last Sunday -- hi to Jenny, the embroiderer from Pepper Street and T'Arts. It was lovely to meet you.

I'm looking forward to my new customer order for a soy vest kit in Luxor. Inspired to put together a fun one-of-a-kind mix of fibres to inspire.

Colourways This Week:

Friar Tuck
, Luxor, and McLaren Vale (see last week's posts)

There will be a few serendipity skeins in the mix. Here's a new yarn I'm experimenting with at the moment:

Laceweight Tencel (100% wood pulp) -- feels like cotton this one --


Would be great for weaving, crochet, and knitting. Lightweight and feels comfy. Timberlake is named for the daggy summer camp I went to as a kid -- think mossies, sunburn, and freezing cold pre-dawn "polar" swims in the arctic conditions of a Wisconsin morning. Did I mention no toilets for 2 weeks? Yeah, honesttogoodness dunnies. *sigh*

The photos don't really get across the painted nature of this skein, which has a mix of blues, moonta (brown w/orange undertones), and Puna, a light purple.
